She is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents Marty (Stegent) and Claude Eickenhorst and her maternal grandfather Eddie Sullivan, III.

A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. She will be buried in the Sullivan family plot in Oakland cemetery in Navasota, Texas near her beloved grandfather Eddie Sullivan, III.

Rachel had a very caring & loving heart not only for her family but her animals too. Rachel & I shared a love for candy Hot Tamales. When we would see each other she always had a “huge” bag for me.
