Posted By Haskett Funeral Homes On December 29, 2019 @ 2:19 PM In Exeter,Obituary | 66 Comments

MATTUCCI: Rachael Rebecca Rose of London

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. 

The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to Dr. Susan Huang and her team, and all of the wonderful hospital staff that took such great care of Rachael. 

A celebration of her life will be held at Willie’s Beach Bar, 83 Main St, Grand Bend, ON on Saturday, January 4th, from 1-4pm.  Haskett Funeral Home, LUCAN entrusted with arrangements (519-227-4211). 

In lieu of flowers, donations to London Cares or consider supporting Rachael’s passion to end homelessness or helping youth in need in your community would be greatly appreciated by the family. 

Condolences for the family of “MATTUCCI: Rachael Rebecca Rose of London”

It’s extremely difficult to find words to describe how heartbroken I am to hear of Rachael’s passing. She was such a bright light and has gone far to soon. I hope that all the great memories of her bring you comfort during this time. I know that I feel blessed to have known, loved, and shared memories with Rachael over the years, and those memories will always remain in my heart. She has found her wings and soared to a better place, and I know that she is with Grandma Dee and Uncle Karl now. We have some of the most beautiful souls watching over us. Sending all my love and healing thoughts.

Condolence from Harald Bettger on January 1st, 2020 1:04 AM

Karen… and the rest of the family… at times, words can do little to sooth the heartache of such a monumental loss, the loss of one’s own child. My own heart heaves knowing the weight your heart must bear at this very difficult moment. Rachael and I never got a chance to know each other, but I do have warm memories from times when we were all much younger… she lives on in the hearts and lives of all those she loved, those who loved her and those whose lives she touched. From me, my mother and sisters, we wish you strength and courage and solace; we will carry you in our thoughts and our hearts.

Condolence from Teri Ferris on January 4th, 2020 1:08 AM

I am deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Rachael. I remember babysitting her and the girls.

As we all grew up, she always stayed in contact through messaging, leaving comments and asking how we all were doing.
I was excited to find out she had a placement at the same residential home that I had started at and knew a few of the same girls I was connected with.
It does not surprise me that she was helping the youth and homeless. Her demeanour was kind, and loving.

I am so sorry and I hope you find comfort in knowing she has touched so many people. My thoughts are with you all. Love Teri Lynn ♥️

Condolence from Theresa and Bob Parsons on January 4th, 2020 10:18 AM
