Rachel Tara Gonzales 49, of Yantis, TX unexpectedly left us on Saturday, April 20, 2024 following an aneurysm. She was born September 9, 1974 in Standish, Michigan.

Rachel was known for her creativity, writing, telling stories, love of yard sales or any activities with her mom, spending time with her sisters, and ability to make children smile. She loved spending time with her son, Michael Carrasco, nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.

She spent numerous hours talking to her long-distance friends Julia Murdoch and Tom Ten Eyck. The relationships she had with her family and friends were truly the priority of her life. She was also known for her ability to love deeply, model forgiveness, and her radiance in lighting up a room with her infectious smile.
