Was a fun, kind and loving person.
With the heaviest of hearts, our sweet little baby Ray soared to her final resting place. After a lengthy battle with complications from Lupus, Rachael passed away at LHSC in London on December 27, 2019 peacefully in the arms of her family in her 25th year. Born in a storm on July 13, 1995, Rachael was the youngest daughter of Rick Mattucci (Joan Deslippe) of Kettle Point, Ontario and Karen Heather (David Husson) of London, Ontario, her 2 sisters, Erika Mattucci (Matteo Scavo) and Taylor Mattucci (Sean Connell), her best friend and sister “Cassnadra” Northover, her fur-nephews Tucker and Dodger, her grandfather Bill Heather (Karen Dickins) and her 3 special nephews Jesse, Cameron and Brady. Reunited with her paternal grandparents Tony Mattucci, Ruth Mattucci and Wanda Mattucci, her maternal grandmother Donna Heather and her uncle Karl Heather. She will be lovingly missed by her many aunts, uncles and cousins, all of her extended family and friends and all who knew her.
Rachael has always had a passion for helping others, and received her Diploma in Child and Youth work from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario in 2017. Rachael was dedicating her life to helping troubled youth and had recently started working to help the homeless of London.
