Rachel was an amazing person, everyone who met her felt her compassion for life and her sense of caring for all of those around her. In her younger years, she enjoyed going for motorcycle rides, going to the beach and spending time with her friends who remain her lifelong friends today. She had a strong passion for nature and being surrounded by her closest family. She loved to be on the boat and in her kayak exploring the coves of South Twin Lake in Millinocket and exploring the Maine woods with her daughter and grandchildren. Rachel and her daughter’s family started an annual tradition to go to Newport Richey, Florida every April vacation to escape the cold Maine winter. She loved the beach, warmth of the sun and sand on her toes. She also loved watching her grandsons play hockey, soccer and lacrosse. She was dedicated to being there for all of their life experiences.
