Rachel Candace Zaragoza

Rachel Candace Zaragoza, 35, unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, in Bakersfield, Calif.

Rachel was born in Tacoma, Wash., on June 4, 1984. She was the younger of two daughters born to Sandra Jones and Richard Zaragoza.

Rachel was incredibly trusting, saw the absolute best in everyone, and was able to make friends with anyone she met. She was adventurous and managed to travel extensively throughout the United States, Guam, the Philippines and even Thailand. She loved so many things – dancing (at which she was unrivaled!), animals, and beaches among them — but she loved her children more than life itself.

This beautiful soul is survived by her three children, Donovan, Ryanna, and Remi Reeser; mother, Sandra Jones; father, Richard Zaragoza; sister, Sarah Zaragoza; and niece, Aiyana Zaragoza.

A viewing and services were held Thursday at the H.K. Holland Memorial Chapel, 216 S. Norma St., Ridgecrest.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to City of Hope.
