Rae Justine (Hunter) Frey

July 30, 1931 — April 21, 2024

Van Wert, Ohio

Rae Justine (Hunter) Frey, 92, joined her loving husband, William E., for eternal life with the Lord on Sunday, April 21, 2024, after a struggle with breast cancer.

She was born July 29, 1931, in Scott, Ohio, to the late Ben and Myra (Burris) Hunter.  She married William E. Frey, who preceded her in death.  They shared 65 years of marriage.

On a beautiful blue sunny day, you could find Rae sitting on her patio enjoying life and nature. She enjoyed her beautiful flowers, monarch butterflies, bird watching, her two cats and her special dog, Emmie.

Rae was an active member of Grand Victory Church, where you would find her leading the congregation with songs every Sunday. She would help with morning announcements and was very involved with all social events. In recent years, she was a member of Trinity Global Methodist Church.

During her life, she was an active member in the Eastern Star organization. She was an avid Lincolnview Lancer and Ohio State Buckeye fan. Rae devoted much of her time to watching her grandchildren's school and sports activities.

Rae is survived by her children, Jill Evans of Van Wert, Randy (Cheryl) Frey of Maumee, Ohio, Steve (Denise) Frey of Van Wert, and Susan (Jonathan) Bohn of The Villages, Florida; 12 grandchildren; and 26 great-grandchildren.
