Rachel Nicole Wise, age 24, passed away August 8, 2019. She was born April 7, 1995. Rachel was a beloved daughter and adored granddaughter who left us far too soon. Rachel’s joy and loving presence will be missed deeply by her family. Rachel valued family and traditions, and she will be remembered by all who knew her as a sweet and gentle soul, who had endless empathy for others.

In her young life she hadn’t settled on a career path but the jobs she most enjoyed were those where she interacted with children, working as a Red Cross Certified Lifeguard, and her jobs supervising children’s activities at Wooden Shoe and Apex Recreation centers.

Rachel loved organization and always wanted to know what was next. She created lists for everything, and often times the lists took longer to create than the chores themselves. A favorite tradition for Rachel was her annual family vacation at Lake Powell, with her Grandparents and her Aunt and Uncle. She loved water skiing and surfing, and even fishing with her Papa there, as long as she didn’t have to touch the fish!

Rachel is survived by her daughter Aubree Daysha Meraz; mother and father Susan (Joe) Hernandez; father Dennis Wise; brother Aaron Wise; sister Rachel Maestas; brother Brent Hernandez; great grandmother Madelyn Christian; grandparents Bill and Carole Schaefer; grandmother Elva Wise; aunts and uncles: Sheri Facinelli & Randy Radford, Carole & John Bryant, Ed & Judy Wise, Stacy & Michael Blunn and numerous nieces & cousins.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation to the charity of your choice in remembrance of Rachel. Charities that would have meaning to Rachel would be those related to epilepsy, children’s charities or substance abuse for young adults

This young woman had a sweetness, a sparkle- even in her ornery smile there was lightness and beauty. A deep and loving soul. I barely knew her, but she impacted me. Sending love to you Rachel and to everyone who had the fortune to know you.

As I struggle to find words that even touch the amount of grief and sadness in my heart, I can't help getting lost in all the memories we have. You were one of my best friends growing up; all the sleepovers, days spent at the pool, and Disney movie marathons forever hold a huge spot in my heart. If only we would've had any idea what the song, "Follow Me" by Uncle Cracker is really about, maybe we would have thought twice about all the dances we made up while singing at the top of our lungs.
You're such a smart, beautiful, caring soul that always lit up any room. I am grateful to have gotten the opportunity to get to know you, as you've had a huge impact in my life. You will be deeply missed.
Rest in paradise girl.
❤❤❤

So sad to hear this. Rachel and I had a lot of memories in elementary school. I remember going to the mountain house and her mom bought us “texting phones” from target. She would come over and we would put memories in a box and we buried them behind the old house. So sorry for the loss. :(
