Cape Breton Island Mourns The Loss Of One Of It's Brightest Stars Raylene Rankin.


           Raylene Rankin

September 30th, Cape Breton Island lost one of it brightest stars. Singer Raylene Rankin dies of cancer. Raylene Rankin, a member of the  acclaimed Celtic-country band The Rankin Family, has died after a long fight with cancer at the age of fifty two.
Raylene began her music career as a member of The Rankin Family in 1989. The band which included sisters Heather and Cookie and brothers Jimmy and John Morris ( who passed away in a tragic vehicle accident in 2000), reached international success, winning numerious awards
and the hearts of Cape Bretoners.  My deepest sympathy is extended to the Rankin family.
