Our beloved Rachel went to be with the Lord on Wednesday February 28, 2007. She was 35. She had Type — Diabetes for 22 years. She is now in a place where there is no suffering. Her strength while she was here was amazing and an inspiration to those that she encountered.
Rachel was a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and child of God. She was always thinking of others before herself. She had a great love for children and the elderly. She had many jobs that allowed her to express that very compassionate nature. She especially loved being a homemaker. Rachel's infectious sense of humor brought joy to those around her. That is something we will sorely miss.
Rachel is survived by her loving husband, Mike Williams, daughters, Breanna, age 12 and Mikayla, age 9; brothers, Brian Lives and Joshua Lives; sisters, Alicia Rejniak and Greta Hurley.
Rachel has always had a very strong sense of family. Raising her girls was one of the greatest highlights of her life.
Most important to her was her strong love for the Lord. She grew closer and closer to Him every day. Rachel would tell you that she had an absolute assurance that Jesus was always with her. Now we know that she is with Him.
