I remember Rae at Hillsdale - the old Hillsdale she worked the evening shift in Bed Care and was always ready with a smile. She came in at 3 pm wore her belt with the old fashioned walkie talkie and was ready to role as a charge nurse. A humble lady gave so much of her to the residents at Hillsdale. A role model Nurse that made us all proud. May her soul rest in peace and her family and grad children revere her and enjoy the memories she has left behind
