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.
