I am sorry to learn of Rae's passing. We met at Mt View High School where we both played clarinet in the band. In 1971, we shared a memorable 11 month adventure through Europe and the UK, with a brief respite from travel working at Holland House Youth Hostel in London, England. I will remember Rae as a kind and generous free spirit with a sparkling and witty sense of humour. My sincere condolences to Ian and family, extended family and friends.

My sister, Eileen and I had the joy of traveling with Rae. Her love of adventure was infectious.
Rae was such a strong, independent spirit who valued friendship. We remained connected through the years. And were blessed for it. We will miss her.

My sister Marie and I first met Rae on a midnight bus from Kathmandu to Delhi back in 1989. We became fast friends and travel mates in India, enjoying Rae's humour and love of travel. We remained friends over the years and felt so much gratitude to have Rae in our lives. She will be missed. Our sincerest condolences to her brother Ian and her beloved Finn and to all those who knew and miss Rae.

Rae and I worked together in the early 90’s and remained friends since that time. Smart, hardworking, and loved animals are my big memories of Rae. My biggest memory of Rae is her incredible sense of humour, always so much fun. I will miss so much about her but I am happy to have known her through the years.
