Cornelia Lowe "Neil" Rankin Obituary

Cornelia Lowe Rankin, 99, of Asheboro, NC, formally of Ramseur, NC, passed away quietly, on January 20, 2024.

Born April 27, 1924 in Chester, VA, ‘Neil’, as she was lovingly known, graduated from Thomas Dale High School and UNC-G-class of 1945 with a degree in Home Economics. She was preceded in death by her parents, the late Rufus Wardell and Lucille Stein Lowe, sister Betty Lorms and brother Henry A. Lowe.

Neil was the beloved wife of the late Sam A. Rankin, Sr. for 48 years and proud mother of Sam A. Rankin, Jr. of Asheboro and Jane Winfree Rankin of Denver, NC. She is also survived by her daughter-in-law Marjorie Moser Rankin; grandchildren Griffin R. Lamb and husband David of Raleigh, Henry Wescott Rankin and wife Priscilla of Greensboro, Mary Carlisle R. Harper and husband Patrick of Asheville, Leigh Anne Brown and fiancée Pete Drolet of Stuart, FL, and Taylor Neil Slaughter  of Wellington, FL, and great-grandchildren; Emmy and Spencer Lamb of Raleigh, Oliver and Drew Rankin of Greensboro, Faye Harper of Asheville, and Eleanor Winfree Burnham of Wellington all of whom she treasured.

Neil lived her life to the fullest, was a devoted wife and mother, active in her church and community, a dear friend to many, an amazing homemaker, and made the best corn pudding you may have ever eaten. She will be greatly missed.
