(Lander, Wyo.) – A family of 10 cousins banded together and donated $1,000 to Gannett Peak Elementary School’s library on Friday.
The cousins donated the money in memory of their grandmother Lorraine Raynor, who taught at South Elementary for 26 years. Lorraine Raynor passed away in October 2013.
“Reading was very important to her,” Peggy Sue Raynor Wolf said. “Education was important to her.”
The grandchildren who donated the money are: David Raynor of Winnemucca, Nev.; Jay Dee Raynor of Winnemucca, Nev.; Crystal Raynor Metzenheim of Reno, Nev.; Peggy Sue Raynor Wolf of Lander; Melissa Raynor Sunseri of Windermere, Fla.; Abbey Raynor Copenhaven or San Tan Valley, Ariz.; Adam Raynor of Laramie; LeRoy Ross of Lander; Yvonne Rossi Thornley or Riverton; and Travis Rossi of Rock Springs.
The library plans on using the funds to purchase books.
