I knew Rae Jean as Mrs. Morren my whole life. She was a good friend to my close friend Mary Ann Wood who always spoke highly of Mrs. Morren but was especially appreciative of the care Rae Jean gave to John Wood after his stroke.
My other fond memory of Mrs. Morren was how she would bring in baked goods for whatever party we might have at the elementary school and to help out the Spencer United Methodist Church .
May God bless and comfort Richard, Diane, Debra, and David and their families. May you each receive the peace of the heavenly and Holy Spirit as you endure her passing.
