Will be sadly missed by her children, Simone and Warren, Amanda and Mish, Candice and Neil, Yoav and Sam.

Grandmother to Lee, Adam, Dani, Ari, Noa, Ethan, Cayla, Jesse and Mason. Fur Mom to Zoe, Chloe and Patches.

Life partner, Uncleo. Amazing brother and sister in law Hylton and Susan, Albert and Sherry, Harold and the late Ellen. Special Aunt to Cortney, Shawn, Jenna, Symone and Craig, Marci and the late Tommy, Mark and Melissa Lewkowicz. A supportive and loving friend to so many.

Rachelle was a woman like no other. Strong and feisty until the very end. Always had an open door policy and never ever wanted anyone to be left alone. Her Shabbos and Yontif tables were always overflowing with people and love.

Thank you to everyone who has been by her side for the past 3 weeks. We couldn’t have gotten through this without you.

Her life was full of obstacles that she overcame with dignity and pride right until the very end.

Thank you to the incredible team at Mackenzie Health Palliative Care Dr. Berger, Nurse Vinnette, Paolo and Ellie.

Please do a mitzvah in honour of our Mother.
