Rachel is survived by her loving husband, Steven Pilcher; and precious daughter, Calleigh, her “mini-me”; parents, Carolyn and Troy Blackall and Steve Connell; maternal grandmother, Norma Lafitte; mother and father- in- law, Joe and Debbie Pilcher; brother, Brian Connell and wife Heather; and little brother, Brendan Connell; sisters, Stefani Smith and husband Jeremy, Hollie Ramirez and husband and Kenny, Heather McCoy and husband Lee, and Rhonda Blackall; sister- in-law, Melissa Pilcher; and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins and many friends that loved her dearly.

Rachel had a great love for animals, so in lieu of flowers the family requests donating to any animal rescue in her name.
