Rae graduated from Franklin High School in Portland, Ore., and then continued her education at a Portland business college.

On June 26, 1954, she married Robert (Bob) Lee Hinrich; they were blessed to raise their family during the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s in Hood River.
Rae enjoyed nature, being part owner of a cabin on Northwest Lake, and she loved the great outdoors. She took weaving lessons in Portland and loved cooking, having a large cookbook collection. She also enjoyed gardening and other crafts.
