We are sad to announce the passing of Rachel “Rae” Busch of Black River Falls, WI. She went to be with the Lord at age 40 on Jan. 11.  Rachel was a gentle, caring and giving being. The simplest pleasures in life brought her great joy. She loved an evening of watching game shows, singing karaoke and enjoying time with her close friends.

     Rachel had an uncanny ability to connect with her nieces and nephews who loved her dearly and was known as Auntie Rae to all of them. Her good-natured personality impacted all those she encountered. 

     Her greatest gift to this world was giving life to two precious humans and her selflessness in giving them their best life. 

     Going before her was her dad, Robert Busch. Staying behind to continue her legacy is her mother, Rose Busch; her sisters, Regina and Rebecca; her bonus parents, Aunt Kay and Uncle Mark Wingard; and her cherished extended family.

     Visitation was held from 2 to 2:30 p.m. with a memorial service beginning at 2:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16, at Torgerson’s Funeral Home, 408 N. Water Street, Black River Falls, WI. Burial was private with immediate family.
