ShaRayne was born October 26, 1990, to John Thomas Alexander Jr. and Shasity Glass in Lake Village, Arkansas. She lived in Eudora, Arkansas, until moving to Marshalltown at age 12. She graduated from Marshalltown High School and had most recently provided childcare from her home.
She loved to read, sing and dance. ShaRayne had one of the most amazing, calming singing voices. If you saw her anywhere you’d either see her face buried in a book or hear her singing voice before you even saw her. You would just follow this angelic sound until you reached the source. She never hesitated to sing to or for anyone, she would have folks calling her just to have her sing to them over the phone. Aside from her music, Rayne’s life revolved around the kids. They all absolutely loved her, it was always a party.
Left to cherish her memory is her mom Shasity Glass; dad John Thomas Alexander Jr.; siblings CharMaine (Ian) Brockway, Khadijah Alexander, Malaysia Alexander and Tymiesha Glass; paternal grandfather John “J.T.” Thomas Alexander Sr.; maternal grandmother Gloria Dean Glass; a host of aunts and uncles; nephews Adrian Glass, Tremaine Vopava and Alexander Avina Glass and many friends.
ShaRayne is preceded in death by her paternal grandmother Gloria Jean Alexander and maternal grandfather James Glass.
