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.

On February 21, 2008 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. 

                                 Thank you for taking the time to learn about someone very special.
