Rachael Manges loves quilting and crocheting but insists her sister could crochet better. She was a stay-at-home mother. “We had too many kids for me to work,” the mother of eight said. Mrs. Manges was a longtime active member at the Church of Christ in Garrett. She grew up in Montgomery County where she went to school in a horse-drawn carriage. It was at Bowers High School where she met her husband, Cline Manges, who was her history teacher. She hated history, she said, but fell in love with the man teaching it. They were married on Dec. 29, 1934.
