Rachel Amber Roberts was born Tuesday August 17th 1993, she left this world on Sunday January 22nd 2023 at the age of 29.
Rachel graduated from Uintah High in 2012 then attended UBATC. Rachel worked for Uintah Recreation District in the child care department for 11 years, in that time she made so many friends and cared for children from all over Vernal. She loved crafting, joking with the kids and taking numerous pictures with each and everyone of them.
Rachel was born with a fire and spark that no one saw coming. Rachel loved animals and from the time she was old enough, she raised, cared for and showed hogs through 4-H, she continued doing this until she was no longer able to due to her age.
She always had some kind of pet following her around, she had 3 beloved dogs that were every part of her sole including her current dog Stonney whom she loved with all of her heart, he was a constant companion to her and was always very protective. Even though she loved all kinds of animals she also thoroughly loved to hunt. Rachel enjoyed many hunting trips with her father Troy, Brother Jade, and uncle Travis.
Rachel loved to paint, play board games, going camping, fishing, and taking razor rides. She was the queen of the tubing hills and she always took out numerous people on her way down! Rachel had a deep and profound love of horses and they of her. Rachel was the keeper of all memories with her camera in hand to capture every person and every moment. She loved to send cards (Hallmark is going to suffer from her passing), letters, and pictures to all she loved and never missed a birthday or achievement anyone had.
Rachel's favorite thing to do was to just be with family and friends. She was truly loved by everyone she knew. Despite her many challenges she would always ask what she could do for others, there was never a day that she didn't ask you if you needed anything. Her big heart will be missed by this community.
To spite Rachel's many obstacles in life she was determined to gain her independency, she obtained her driver's license and was able to purchase a van. One of her biggest dreams of owning her very own home became reality due to her determination. Rachel always reached for the stars and because of her hard work and stubbornness she was able to accomplish so many amazing things. She never met a stranger and always went out of her way to make everyone feel welcome. She was always giving everyone a hard time and loved to make everyone laugh, she would smile and laugh while mowing you down with her wheelchair. We will miss the many camping trips and hay rides.
