Rae met T.W. Workman, fell head over heels and they were married in March of 1959.  They moved with their children to Stilwell in 1970 and made the area their home.

She started at Stilwell foods in 1972 and remained there until 1979, at which time, she began a new career at Facet Int’l.  Rae stayed at Facet until her retirement in 1996.

Rae enjoyed spending time at the casino and attending the horse races in Sallisaw while her health permitted.

Her family was precious to her.  She enjoyed visiting with family and friends, anywhere and anytime.  But her grandbabies were her pride and joy.  Rae loved them unconditionally.  She always had pictures of her grandbabies ready for anyone to see.
