She was raised on a farm and grew to love tending the soil and animals. She married Ralph E. Reynolds and they had six sons. A hardworking woman, Rachel bought a farm to continue her love of caring for livestock and to keep her children out of trouble. She later married George R. Parker, and they had a daughter together.
