Rachelle Dorothy Gach Obituary

Rachelle Dorothy Gach (nee de Linde) passed away on May 8, 2024, in Arlington Heights, Illinois, at the age of 88. A long-time resident of Mount Prospect, she was born on March 18, 1936, in Chicago, Illinois. Rachelle was a loving wife to Carl, her high school sweetheart and husband of 66 years, a devoted mother to Kim and Russ (Georgette), a loving sister to Audrey Jungels, and aunt to nieces and a nephew. She was preceded in death by her parents, Gladys and Art de Linde, her in-laws Dorothy and Elmer Gach, and her son-in-law Scott Roberts.


Rachelle had a fulfilling career as a labor and delivery nurse at Illinois Masonic Hospital and later as a newborn nursery nurse at Saint Joseph's Hospital. She received her education at Howe Primary School, Austin High School, and was a proud alumnus of the Illinois Masonic School of Nursing.


Rae was an incredible baker, particularly known for her chocolate chip cookies which she lovingly shared with all. In her free time, Rachelle enjoyed reading crime novels and playing bingo and bunko when she wasn't watching sports. The Lady Vols of the University of Tennessee was her favorite team with the Chicago Sky, Cubs, and Bears battling for second place. She loved the many dogs that were part of her family through the years as well as caring for the menagerie of animals her children had through the years, including turtles, birds, fish, gerbils, a guinea pig, a snake and even a rat.


Rachelle's presence will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her.
