My sincere sympathies to Rachel’s family and to the credit union family that considered her one of our own. Working with Rachel at the Maine Credit Union League was always an ‘active’ experience from her big laugh to her take charge approach. As part of the Member Services staff at the League, Rachel helped to develop the department while serving the credit unions all across Maine. She was a friend to many and played a key role for us at a very important time. Gone too soon, I will remember her fondly.

I'm shocked and saddened to hear of Rachel's passing. My sincere condolences to her family. I have and will cherish the many memories of Rachel during our Credit Union careers. Whenever I was with Rachel we laughed. She was such a good humored person. I will miss her voice and laughter and will carry that memory with me whenever I think of her. RIP my friend, you will be missed.

I have only known Rachel a short time, through a professional association we were both members of. She was kind and helpful and always quick to lend her wealth of knowledge. She was taken far too soon. My thoughts and prayers go out to those closest to her. I know her brilliant mind will be missed by many. May she rest in peace.
