What a special person I remember. I have such fond memories of Rae and Robbie coaching the Chieftains softball team. Rae was kind enough to pick me up for practices before I was old enough to drive myself! You will me missed.

Rae coached a ball team that I played on called the Kickapoo Valley Chieftans. She was a great coach but I fear there were a few of us on the team that tried her patience at times!!! Without Rae, womens sports would not be what they are today so Thank you for that & for all the memories from softball! RIP Rae, you deserve it.

Pauline you will be missed. You were a role model to all women coaches and Athletic Directors that were a part of WISAA. Thanks for paving the way for so many girls to experience the thrill of interscholastic competition. You have touched so many lives and will always be remembered.

Aunt Rae, I hold so many special memories of your ventures here to Colorado, to join all of us in our camping trips and the many, many marshmallows that caught fire, and the tall stories told at night around the campfires. Most of all the memory of the water-bumper cars and moped rides you and I shared at WI Dells. The look on your face, as I held your bumper car under the waterfall and you became totally drenched was priceless! My heart aches today, but I know that with time, the ache will soften as more memories of special times with you are used to patch the pain. God has gained another another Angel and I know that you will teach them all how to be competitive in softball, basketball and track. Look down upon us all everyday, knowing that we are all looking up to the heaven's to see you as well. I love you and will miss you. Until we meet again, one day.
