She was a member of West Court Baptist Church and retired from Baxter Healthcare after many years of dedicated service. Rachel enjoyed crossword puzzles and was an excellent cook.

Cheri & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Rachel was a very sweet Lady. I got to know her when she came in to Marion Oil. I always loved to talk to her. I will be praying for comfort in the following days.
