Rachel was preceded in death by her parents, her life partner and best friend, Carroll “Junior” Quam, and their son Charles “Chuck” Quam.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, December 27, 2019 at Grace Baptist Church, 1801 S. Thompson Drive, Madison, WI 53716, with Pastor Dean Howell officiating.
