Rachel worked in retail sales and customer service for Sears in North Little Rock and Little Rock, Arkansas. After that she worked in food service for the Cabot School District. She enjoyed working with students at the Cabot High School concession stand. She would often take a pot of soup to feed the hungry student workers. After finally retiring, she enjoyed time with her beloved husband Charles Ray, enjoying breakfast and coffee with friends at several local diners. Together, they also enjoyed camping, fishing, and riding a four wheeler. She was an avid Bridge player and played with her friends every week. She was a member of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Cabot, where she joyfully served her “ministry” as church hostess for many years.
Survivors include a daughter Debbie (Frank) Pullen in Roland; son Chuck (Joyce) Massey of Austin, a sister Lynn (Jerrel) Maxwell of Cabot, 4 granddaughters, 3 grandsons, and 4 great-grandchildren.
