Rachel enjoyed going to yard sales. She was always on the lookout for rooster collectables. Perhaps she learned
how to put a price on and get a good deal from the time she spent watching The Price is Right and Let’s Make A
Deal. She also had a love for her dogs: Lucy, Dora, and Bear, as well as her cat, Pretty Kitty. She was an avid
Cubs fan. In her spare time, Rachel liked to spend time on Facebook.

nieces and nephews and their families.
