Honoring Rachele Foster Rohde

At this time, beloved wife, daughter, sister and loving mother Rachele Foster Rohde is on life support until her generous wishes to donate her organs are fulfilled.  Rachele strived for kindness and generous  consideration in everything, doing all she could to support family and friends.  She was also a loving teacher, aunt and niece.  Six weeks ago she, John and Myla left their longtime home in the northwest to move to Texas, far from family,  though their new friends have been kind and helpful.  Once Rachele has passed, funeral costs and travel can become a burden for a grieving husband.  I would like to relieve John and Rachele's family from as much of that burden as possible and will see that all donations after GoFundMe's administrative fees be given directly to the family.  Please honor Rachele with me, sending her family the message that we grieve with them by helping to shoulder the burden of her funeral.

Thank you for any amount you donate, no matter the size.

Rachele's aunt Trudy Russell
