Rachel was a coworker at The Travelers many years ago. She was kind, fun, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I’m so sorry to hear about your your loss. My sympathies.

Rick, Carol and family,
So sorry to read of your Mom’s passing. I have so many great memories of Rachel when I would come over to play with Carol back on Bushnell St. And who could forget the every Saturday morning tag sales. She was such a great friend to my Mom (Marilyn) for so many years till her passing. I will always remember her fondly.
