Raejean and Ken were two of the people I enjoyed visiting with the most on Sunday mornings. Their desire/passion to share the Good News beyond Sunday mornings and the walls of the church was a great connection. We had great conversations in Walmart on occasion when we happened to bump into each other there. Raejean's faith remained strong through the things she was facing the past few years. Although we will miss her now, I am so glad we know she is rejoicing before the throne of God today and for eternity. David Taylor, August 31, 2020 Raejean was my aunt and I always appreciated her smiles and laughter. The last time we saw her was in the Amana's (Iowa) in 2018 (I think). My daughter was about 4 years old and I loved how she engaged with Stella. Rae asked Stella questions about herself and giggled at her funny answers. It made Stella feel acknowledged in a way that everyone needs. I will always remember her kind nature. Rest in Peace. Tracy (Brian and Stella) Tuftee, August 26, 2020 I’m so sorry for your loss. She will be missed! Even though I haven’t seen her recently it seems like yesterday that we were catching up. Prayers for Your family.
TheresaVaughn, August 26, 2020 Oh my dear girl, I will miss you. I could always count on you for a word of encouragement and a laugh. You are one of God's angels. Grace Higgins, August 26, 2020 She was a very dear saint who touch so many lives on her earthly journey. Now she is resting in the arms of Jesus.
