Current Queen’s Story


Six elegant senior ladies completed their Interviews, Talent, Poise, and Philosophy of Life presentations in the Older Persons’ Commission Auditorium, Rochester on July 26, 2017.  With an electrifying pause, Francine Hachem, Emcee and Pageant Director boldly announced:  “And the 2017 Ms. Senior Michigan is…..Rae McIntosh!” 

Rae an extremely talented actress and singer, is currently involved in several local theatre and film projects.  She belongs to The Dearborn Players and the Stagecrafters Theatre group having served on the Board of Directors for the latter.  Rae is an active member of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.  Rae also chaired the fundraising event in 1992 at Stagecrafters for the Aids Prevention Project with a stunning performance of “A Chorus Line.”

Beside theatre, Rae loves to read, do the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzles, do Trivia games, visit New York City, and the ballet.  Having always wanted to be a physician, Rae loves anything to do with medicine.  In her work life, she spent twenty years as an Account Manager for a TMJ Specialist.

Rae has a Bachelors degree in Speech and Theatre from Wayne State University, and has studied voice and dance since high school.  As you can see, her real love is performing on stage and on camera.

Having met in 1968 during a production of “The King and I,” Rae married her wonderful husband, David and they have a gorgeous daughter, Elizabeth who shares her parents’ talents and passion for the Arts.

Now crowned Ms. Senior Michigan 2017, Rae will be an advocate for the Arts.  She believes the Arts to be essential to the development of our culture and personal enrichment, therefore not expendable!  Rae is extremely proud to be representing our Great Lakes State of Michigan in Atlantic City for the title of Ms. Senior America in October.
