Baruch Dayan HaEmet – Rachel Maves z”l

Rachel Maves, sister of Joe Secor and sister-in-law of Carol Secor, passed away very early the morning of Thursday, March 10, 2022.  Rachel was a beloved and devoted mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend who will be greatly missed.

There was a memorial service at Feldman Mortuary in Denver on Sunday, March 13, 2020, and there will be a private burial in Boulder this week.

Rachel is survived by her brothers Jacob Secor (Kitisri Sukhapinda), Joseph (Carol) Secor, and her children Nathan (Danielle) Maves, Randi Maves, her grandchildren Leo Maves, Adeline Maves, and Preston Maves and her four nieces Ruth (Menachem) Katz, Aaran Secor, Tara Secor (Taylor Larimore) and Tanya Secor (Tyler O’Connor).

May Rachel’s neshama be at peace and may all the mourners receive strength and comfort.
