Tante Rachel will lovingly be remembered by several nieces and nephews. Everyone will miss her bright smile, positive attitude, and her gentle loving personality. Rachel will be missed for her delicious Belgium “Lukken” Waffles. Rachel was happiest when she was working alongside her loving husband Hugo on the family farm or tending to her beautiful gardens.
A very deep expression of gratitude is extended to the staff at Amica for the excellent support, care, and compassion they showed Rachel each day. A special thanks to Olga, Lisa, and Amy. Your compassion, love, and genuine caring ways will not be forgotten. Thanks also to the McCormick Home for the extraordinary care Rachel received in her last days.
