Our family is deeply saddened to inform you that our beautiful daughter Rachel Elizabeth Fischer joined the angels in heaven on September 26, 2019. Rachel Elizabeth Fischer was born on December 21, 1996 in Portland, OR to her parents Tom and Liz Fischer. She arrived as the third child in the family to her two big brothers Jacob and Matthew. Rachel has suffered for the last few years from depression. The strength and courage she displayed in fighting this horrible disease inspired all who know her. Sadly, her pain became overwhelming. She is now at peace as this disease can no longer torment her.

She is survived by her parents Tom and Liz Fischer, brothers Jacob and Matthew, Grandparents Elizabeth Fischer, Neill and Suzanne Smith and her adopted sisters Olivia Maxwell and Sophia Anderson. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and a large community of Aloha Warriors.

I remember coaching Rachel in soccer. Rachel always tried her best, always had a smile and was liked by everyone one the team. One of the hardest positions on a soccer team is playing a goalie. Rachel was our main goalie and took a lot of hard hits with the soccer ball and helped us win a lot of games. Rachel was a very tough young girl. It has been several years since I have seen Rachel and how she had grown up into a beautiful young adult. Rhonda, Tori and I are very sad to hear of the loss of Rachel. We will never forget her. Our thoughts are with you.
