Raceile (Rae) Owen, 79 of Fort Morgan, Colorado passed away September 25, 2022, with her family by her side. Rae was born on December 1, 1942, in Fort Riley, Kansas to Raymond Lichtenhan and Bonnie Lesovsky. She grew up in Cuba, Kansas where she graduated high school and then went on to attend junior college in Fairbury, Nebraska. Rae moved to Denver, Colorado where she worked as a legal secretary and met her husband, Roger Owen. Roger and Rae got married on June 6, 1964 and celebrated 58 years of marriage this year. They were blessed with children RaLynn and Richard (Rick) and Rae's stepson Roger (Rod) Owen. In December 1976, Rae and Roger moved to Fort Morgan, Colorado where they bought Sailsbery Supply. For the next 47 years, Rae and Roger worked side by side to build their business by supporting their customers and their community. Rae, as part owner and Secretary/Treasurer of Sailsbery sometimes did the bookkeeping at night on the kitchen table to always be sure there was time in her schedule to pick up kids from school, haul the team to baseball games all summer long, endless runs to dance classes, sew costumes for dance recitals, and somehow always make dinner, too. Rae was involved with Colorado Pre-School and Head Start planning for many years. She was very committed to causes that supported children in the community whether in sports, plays, or other programs, she always wanted to see kids grow and succeed. In our family, Rae was the "organizer. " She organized and hosted countless family reunions and gatherings including many years of camping trips at Lake McConaughy where we have so many fond memories of family time together. She loved hosting and cooking for holidays and always made sure there was plenty of "fun" for all to share. In recent years, Rae enjoyed gardening and home renovation projects. She always was up for adding new plantings to their yard or tackling a home improvement project whether at her own home or lending a hand at her children's homes, too. She loved listening to music - as loud as possible - and having a dance party on the spur of the moment. Rae cherished her grandchildren, Jackson Owen 12, and Harper Owen 10. She loved spending time with them, attending their baseball games, karate tournaments, hockey games, Easter egg hunts, and hearing all about their school activities. Not a day went by that Rae wasn't thinking about what she could buy them if they needed something, do for them, things to teach them, and couldn't wait until the next time she would see them. Rae was preceded in death by her father Raymond Litchenhan; her mother, Bonnie Lesovsky and stepfather, Marion Lesovsky. She is survived by her husband, Roger; her daughter RaLynn, her son, Rick, and his wife Julie; her grandchildren Jackson and Harper; her stepson, Roger, and his wife Joleyn; her sister, Vicki Kolars and her husband Melvin; as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and other loved family members. Rae's family will be hosting a Celebration of Rae's Life on Saturday, October 8, 2022, 12 noon - 3 pm at The Block (formerly the Steak Out) 19592 East 8th Avenue, Fort Morgan, CO 80701. We invite you to gather with us to share some of our favorite memories, stories, and photos to laugh, to cry and remember a wonderful person, loving wife, devoted mother, and great friend who will be so dearly missed. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Rae's name and sent to Heer Mortuary, 225 East Platte Avenue, Fort Morgan, CO 80701.
