OBITUARY

Rachelle Elizabeth Currie

23 June, 19882 August, 2021

On Monday evening, August 2, 2021, 33-year-old Rachelle Elizabeth Currie passed away unexpectedly from a cardiac arrest at her home in Hyannis. She was the beloved mother of Thomas Currie, age 6, daughter of Kathleen Currie and the late Thomas Currie, Sr., and sister to Thomas Currie, Jr., and Tara Currie Reyes. She is survived by her grandmother Gloria Leary, Karen and Ron Eppler, Michael and Mark Leary, her beloved partner Manisha Mendes, and many, many friends.

Rachelle was born on June 23, 1988, and lived most her life as a resident of Hyannis, MA. In 2006, she graduated from Tri-Country Regional Vocational Technical High School with a shop major in culinary arts. She attended college for a short time but chose a path with CVS Pharmacy where she eventually rose to the position of supervisor. For co-worker Carol Conroy, Rachelle was like a 2nd daughter. “I will miss her dearly because she helped everyone and was always so sociable. In addition to her outstanding work performance, she was a friend to all employees. Her dedication to CVS will not be forgotten. She will be missed, and the store will never be the same.”

Rachelle’s many friends bear witness to her uniqueness and irreplaceability.

“I just loved her so much,” says partner Manisha Mendes. “I can’t believe this has happened. She went over the top for everyone. Rachelle was an ‘over-healer,’ always running for others. She was strong, independent – a beautiful soul who was taken too soon.”

Jamie Takara best friend of 20 years states, “I’ve been best friends with Rachelle for 20 years - and that was not enough time. She was my ride or die, my left lung. She always called me when there was a problem. I’ve had so many years of phone calls that to not get a call she was feeling ill or different is odd. I had no idea – no one did. She was my sister, my family. She had plans for a better life and was finally going to leave the Cape and relocate to North Carolina with me or Florida. All my memories include her – I can’t think of a year without her since I was 15 years old. I don’t know how to take it that she will not be around anymore. She was my person”

Jessica Norris friend of 11 years states, “Rachelle was strong, fierce, and real, Rachelle, you will always be missed in my heart and forever irreplaceable.”

“Rachelle was without a doubt the most down to earth, honest, and hard-working daughter, mother, and friend,” Family friendJeanna Ridlon recalls. “She was the definition of what a strong, independent woman with a kind soul and a fierce ambition looks like. She was always wiser than her years. I will miss her brutally honest opinions and words of advice, her sense of humor, and mostly her desire to always want more and to better. Rachelle will forever be in a special place in our hearts. Fly high, Rachelle, and watch over us all from above while we watch from below – until we embrace again!”

For Aunty Karen, the song “Forever Young” describes Rachelle. “It represents what she was to me. It’s what I wished and hoped for her – and the love I have for her.”

Rachelle has left us too soon. She was an organized person who had plans for the future. After many overcoming many personal challenges, including single motherhood and the passing of her father in 2006 and her child’s father in 2015, she had found stability and happiness. Her life revolved around her son and whatever it took to give him the best life possible.

Rachelle had a passion for living. She enjoyed the beach and taking her son to fun places off the Cape. She celebrated arts and crafts, holistic healing with stones and massage (especially “those glutes”), getting her nails done. She watched BET reality T.V. drama shows and listened to rap music (especially “Young Ma”). She was obsessed with Tik Tok, social media humor, and the latest beauty trends. She loved to shop at Home Goods, Target, TJ Maxx, and Hobby Lobby. If you went along for the ride, you knew it was going to be awhile.

We will miss you, Rachelle, and love you forever. You made us all better people.

Rest in the sweetest peace, Angel.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rachelle when I lived in Franklin MA for when I was in high school . I met Rachelle through Rachelles best friend Jamie Smith . Coincidence would have it I was Jamie’s younger brother Williams best friend and still am to this day . As I sit here today and reflect on Rachelle . I couldn’t help but remember Rachelles infectious smile and laughter . Rachelle was a good soul and will be dearly missed . I’m so very sorry for the loss of Rachelle she will forever be in my everyday thoughts . I’m wishing her family the warmth of Rachelles presents in spirit and love everyday . Again my condolences to the Currie family .
