Rachel was a lady of many words, good deeds and lots of action as she was a driving force in her family, church, and community. She loved watching basketball games and in her younger years played the game quite well. In years past Rachel was a clogger with Cripple Creek Cloggers and what fun she had and created in her group of cloggers. Rachel’s home was always open and welcoming to all who entered. Her family was her pride and joy. Rachel’s quick wit, sunny smile, and joyful spirit will long be remembered.
