Rachel was such a creative soul and was enthusiastic with anything artsy! She was athletic as a child and did many sports like track, cheerleading, dance and soccer. She was a leader to her schoolmates. Rachel was beautiful on the inside and also very much so on the outside. She was fufilled by the simple things and showed gratitude for those who were closest to her. Rachel was honored to be a wife of Fletcher, the man she adored and treasured and it was absolutely love at first sight. She was thankful to have found someone to always be by her side no matter what. Rachel was a loving mother to her daughters, Ava and Veronica, and made great choices for her children to ensure their happiness. She was a fun and spontaneous aunt to her nephews, Mack and Micah, and found comfort in the closeness she shared with her family. She was a loyal sister and treated her siblings with honor. She was known and will be rembered for her strength, her amazing and unjudging heart and compassion for others. Rachel was kind to all and to all who loved her, thank you for the blessing...Rachel, you are loved beyond words and will be missed beyond tears. Breathe easy beautiful...
