On April 18, 2023, Rachel Kastoryano, 53,  took her last breath with her family by her side.  Beloved wife of Ofir Smadja for 23 years and devoted mother to Daniel 18 and Hailey 14. Predeceased by her parents Vilma Kastoryano and Salvador Kastoryano.  She is survived by her two brothers Moshe Kastoryano (Mary Kastoryano) and Asher Kastoryano (Darlene Kastoryano).

She offered infinite compassion, encouragement and wisdom and had no limits when it came to caring for her children. Beyond motherhood, she remained a safe space for her nieces and nephews to come for advice, homework help, and unconditional love. With her passion in helping others, she spent her career as a social worker. A lover of music, dancing and a stunning singer, Rachel will be most missed as the glue that held the family together.
