FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Funeral arrangements have been set for a young woman found dead inside a car in a creek Saturday in Williamson County.

A friend found 20-year-old Ravane Ray’s car in Leiper’s Creek off Leiper’s Creek Road, not far from State Route 840 in Franklin, after no one had heard from her since Friday morning.

Ray left her grandmother’s house early Friday morning to visit her boyfriend when she went missing.

"She happened to take a path that no one would have thought she would have taken that night," her aunt, Terra Foster, told News 2.

Authorities said Ray was travelling southbound on Leiper’s Creek Road when she reached a curve and went off the road.

The car then traveled down an embankment and landed upside down in the creek.

Foster told News 2 she helped raise Ray, who was not only a daughter, but a sister to three teenagers and an aunt who often helped care for her one-year-old nephew.

"She was a beautiful person, as beautiful as she was on the outside, she was that much more on the inside," her aunt said.

Ray was a Fairview High School graduate who recently moved out on her own and started working at Williamson Medical Center where she delivered food to patients and shined her compassionate light on others.

"She loved everyone. She would hug you and she would kiss you every opportunity she got,” Foster said.

Visitation for Ray will be held Tuesday at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home and Gardens from 3 until 8 p.m. and again Wednesday morning from 9 until 11 a.m.

The funeral will be held following Wednesday’s visitation.

The family set up a fund at First Bank to help with the cost. Any money left over will be given to kids who cannot afford church camp.
