LaRae worked at Kraft, Weight Watchers, and Heinz. She also worked for Costco as the demo "queen" from the time it opened until March of 2018. She enjoyed the friendships she made through team members and customers.
LaRae enjoyed yard work, quilting, crocheting, and spending time with her family. She also enjoyed going to the temple. Black Friday shopping will never be the same without Mom (grandma). Mom was always so much fun, that is when you really seen the fiery red head come out! When playing games with her you knew you were never going to win because she was so competitive. She was always there to brighten your day!
She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served many years in the Idaho Falls temple with her dear husband Carl.
LaRae loved to do anything for anyone. She considered everyone her sweetheart and always told them that she loved them.
