Rachel grew up on the family farm, so she was not afraid of hard work. She was a very independent woman, who loved animals, especially her cats. She enjoyed keeping her home in immaculate condition and her yard well-manicured. In her spare time, Rachel enjoyed reading, doing crossword puzzles, and attending horse shows. She was very a caring, loving, witty, and fun lady, who will be missed by those who knew her.
She is survived by her children: Ricky Sanwick of Janesville, Randy Sanwick of Janesville, Vickie Hovey of Janesville, Scott Sanwick of Galesville, WI, Lisa Sanwick of Janesville, Brad (Lucy) Coulter of Janesville, and Brenda Daniels of FL; 16 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. She is further survived by her sister and her husband: Patricia and Darrell Colsch of Mt. Sterling, WI; several other relatives and many friends. In addition to her husband, Harry and her parents, she was predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law: Janice and Verlan Smith.
