You Will Forever Be Missed

Rachel Amaris Elliott

Rachel Amaris Elliott was born June 23, 1989, in Fallbrook, CA, a precious and miraculous gift from God.

Rachel was attending her first year in college and having the time of her life as a young adult. She resided in Irvine with her Aunt Lindsay and Uncle Brian and attended college, pursuing her dream of living in Southern California and becoming a forensic investigator.

Rachel was caring, responsible, intelligent and talented in many ways – she loved to sing. She was a devoted Daughter, Granddaughter, Great-granddaughter, Sister, Niece and Friend. We treasure every moment we shared with Rachel.


Our loving Daughter, Sister, and Niece.

Rachel was killed by a drunk driver.

Ironically, Rachel supported anti-drinking and driving as her own mother was hit by a drunk driver in 1984 at age 18, same as Rachel. Both of her mom’s friends died in her arms. Less than one year before Rachel was killed by this [alleged] drunk driver she played one of the lead participants in a high school DUI program called Every 15 Minutes.

Rachel’s family suggests donations to MADD, Every 15 Minutes or the Orland High’s music department in her honor.

Less than a year later she was killed by a drunk driver.
