Rachael Fenrich (Bartley) was born January 22, 1926. She was one of twelve children born to John and Theresa Bartley of Tramping Lake. She passed away peacefully in her home in Wilkie, where she resided, with all her family by her side. Rachael was a gentle soul who lived a life of generosity and dedication to God and her family. Her marriage to Robert of 49 years was an example of the faith and commitment they had for each other and now we believe they are re-united and are dancing together in heaven.
Left to cherish in Rachael's memory are her nine children and their families:
Marie(Leo) Schwebius, Dorothy (Bob) Caldwell, Ray (Sheryl) Fenrich, Rob (Terry) Fenrich, Rosina (Harry) Highton, Adeline (Dennis) Thomson, Leona (Ken) Hood, Dianne (Terry) Karstens, Dennis (Patty) Fenrich and her 27 grandchildren, 38 great-grand children and two great-great-grandchildren; her brother George Bartley; numerous nieces, nephews and family friends. Rachael was predeceased by her husband Robert Fenrich; grandson Dan Fenrich; great-grandchild Jenessa Caldwell, her immediate family members - her parents, five sisters and five brothers.
