RaeJean Cox, one of South Florida’s most prominent performers, will be remembered at a pair of memorials this weekend.

The first is Saturday, Oct. 2 at 11 a.m. Compass LGBTQ Community Center at 201 N. Dixie Highway in Lake Worth is hosting the “Celebration of Life for RaeJean Cox.” Their invite reads, “Please join family, friends and friends-who-are-family to share our favorite moments and stories of RaeJean with each other and just be together. All are welcome. Masks and bright colored clothes are encouraged, because that’s what Earl would have wanted.” Earl Bunning was Cox’s non-drag name.

On Sunday, Oct. 3 The Imperial Sun Court of All Florida (ISCOAF) will hold a Celebration of Life in Fort Lauderdale. Cox was the reigning Empress of the philanthropic organization. Her fundraising prowess was enthusiastic and unmatched. This event will be at 2 p.m. at United Church of Christ, 2501 NE 30th Str. All are welcome and encouraged “to wear something ‘colorful’ to celebrate the joy that Earl brought to our community and the world.”

Cox (Bunning) died in August after being in a severe car accident. In life, Cox was a gregarious performer whose shows would literally stop traffic ... because she would take her performances into the street. Her improv skills were superior, and if you were in the audience during her act you stayed on your toes just in case she called you out.
