Rachel Schnitz, 91, passed away in Scottsdale, Ariz., on June 16, 2020.
Rachel was preceded in death by the first and only love of her life, her husband Earl. Rachel is survived by her children, Howard (Sue) and Ruthie (Ed); her five grandchildren, Stephanie (Brett), Jason (Jessica), Robert (Janae), Samantha and Jake; and her four great-grandchildren, Sophie, Sloane, Lucy and Everly.
Rachel resided in the Greater Columbus area from 1966 until moving to Scottsdale in 1995. She had many friends in Central Ohio and was active in a number of associations, in addition to her own retail career. She was at different times a member of both Congregation Tifereth Israel and Temple Israel. She was a longstanding member of the Winding Hollow Country Club. She did work for B’nai B’rith Women and Hadassah, and managed the Thrift Shop for a time.
In 1977, she created her own new business, The Linen Tree, which lives on today in Scottsdale, but is owned by another family.
Rachel was laid to rest next to Earl on June 18 in Scottsdale. May she rest in peace.
