June 23, 1958 – May 14, 2020
Jennifer Horton Rachac went home to be with Jesus on May 14, 2020, after a courageous battle with leukemia. Her unwavering faith in her Lord, her healing and the strength He gave her daily remained strong and steadfast until He took her home. Jennifer, cherished daughter of Wayne and Evangeline Horton, was born in Houston, Texas. Spending most of her life in Houston, she had short moves to East Texas and Tulsa, Oklahoma when she was growing up. Excited to join the ranks of the working world, she was more than happy to leave her school days behind. Jennifer was employed for more than 30 years with El Dorado Insurance Agency in a career that she excelled at and enjoyed. It was there she met her loving husband, Bob Ring. Together, they enjoyed weekly date nights, relaxing at their farm in the country and spending fun times with their grandchildren. She retired as Human Resources Director to focus on her treatment in September of 2019, but her favorite title of all was “JJ” to her grandbabies that she adored. Jennifer also cherished her bi-annual trips with her best friend (chosen Sister), Mel, to their favorite places like the wine country. Jennifer lit up any room with her beauty, wit, and her smile and spread joy and laughter everywhere she went. We were blessed with her huge heart and capacity to love. She was so blessed to have been loved well her whole life.
Jennifer is survived by her husband, Bob, his son, Josh, daughter-in-law, Lindsey, and their children, Jacob and Layla, his son, Andy, daughter-in-law, Lisa, and their children, Blake and Penelope. She is also survived by her loving parents, Wayne and Evangeline, her sister, Stephenie, brother-in-law, Bruce, and her very best friend, Mel. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, Brittany, Lindsay, Amanda, Evan and Jackson. Jennifer was preceded in death by her brother, Timothy, and sister, Gretchen.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only, but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2 Timothy 7-8

There are two things that stand out in my mind about this lovely lady. The first is how she always made me laugh. She had a way of bringing out the humor in things. The second one is her genuine interest in how I was doing. She truly cared about what was going on in my life, and that is highly uncommon with folks these days. She will be greatly missed.

We sure loved Jennifer at El Dorado as she always had our back as ladies, and she shared her beauty with us all. I remember one time she heard that I was attending a meeting where Regis Philbin was the keynote speaker, and she MADE (lol) me get a book autographed for her … just one of many special memories. She will forever be missed, and has made it home. Thanks Jennifer for fighting the good fight and making a difference in our lives & the world a better place -- just the pleasure of knowing you -- what a blessing to so many you were. I will especially miss the vacations that you took with Mel. I really enjoyed hearing your stories about all the fun times y'all had. Enjoy your new home … I hear it's priceless … just like you!! And I will see you when the good Lord calls me home, too.
Lord, please keep her family & friends safe in your arms, and help them through the hard times.
Until we meet again …

Jennifer and I worked together for well over 16 years. I’m proud to say we were part of a wonderful work family/friendship. She was so good at providing those little touches that made everyone feel special. She was a formidable presence. I am sincerely at a loss for words.

Jennifer was a beautiful lady with a loving heart. She loved life, adored her grandchildren, and dearly loved her soulmate husband. She had a joy for living and was a warrior and fighter right up to the end.
Jennifer, may you rest in peace surrounded by God’s loving arms. With love and fond memories, you will be sorely missed.

Jennifer was there for me in my time of need. She was such a beautiful woman and loved her family dearly. She was always happy and full of life. There is no one like her. She will be missed by all who knew her. I am so sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this time.
