Rachel Lee Lawson





Born on May 2nd, 1980 in Lansing Michigan.



Passed away on February 16th, 2015 at home in Nashville Tennessee.





There might be a rumor that Rachel has concocted this elaborate ruse of her death in order to get out of dealing with the snow and ice that Tennessee recently experienced since she desperately hates the cold. She was known to often say, “This is why I moved South” to avoid fridge winter weather up North. Unfortunately the truth of the matter is that she’s really gone.





While Rachel was relatively young when she passed on at the age of 34, she had lots of “adventures” as she used to like to call them. Whether these ventures were a simple night out on the town to enjoy dinner at a new restaurant and a concert, a weekend exploring the great outdoors of the Smokey Mountains, traveling a week or two abroad through Europe, or moving to a new state where she knew practically no one; she packed a lot of experiences and travel into her limited lifetime. Perhaps her passing is just another trip she has embarked upon and she is now happily exploring and experiencing just one more of her great “adventures”. In many ways it was this childlike curiosity that led her always to ask lots of questions and to travel all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, England, France, Belgium, and Netherlands. Despite all of her physical disabilities she still maintained that adventurous spirit to the end and had been making plans for a future road trip in to Toronto.





She collected hippos, postcards from all over the world, and currency from her various travels. Rachel was a lover of animals, children, sushi, reality TV, Dr. Pepper, baking, and taking lots of photographs of her many adventures. She was usually trying to improve herself and doing considerate things for others. Her kindness caused her to do things like rescuing animals, helping her sister and nephews, or giving her last few dollars to someone who she thought needed it more than she did. But the most important thing to her, what she loved more than anything else in the world, were her two little nephews J.T. and Nate.





Rachel leaves behind several family members including her dearest grandmother, her mother, her precious sister, her two cherished nephews, as well as numerous treasured friends, and several beloved pets. Visitation for Rachel will be held at Woodlawn Roesch-Patton Funeral Home in Nashville on Sunday, March 1st from 10am until 2:30pm with funeral services to follow immediately afterward.
