On Wednesday November 20th, 2019 Rachel Edghill-Matray passed away. Rachel was the dearly loved daughter of Anna Matray, beloved daughter of Anthony Edghill, dear sister to Chelsey, Victoria and Christian Edghill, his spouse Katie Smith and aunt to Atreyu, Hunter, Emery, and Iris. Rachel was a much loved member of the Richardson (née Vanden Enden) family.

Rachel will be dearly missed by her mud dog and bubs, Honda. Outside was her favorite place, and it didn’t matter if it was winter or summer, a lake or a farmer’s field, she was out hiking with her best adventure buddy Honda.

If Rachel was your friend you had a fiercely loyal, fun loving, bright light in your life. Rachel could talk to you for hours and still have lots left to say. She attracted amazing people to herself as she was exciting to be with, and could be counted on to have your back if you needed it.

She loved her families, and could often be found enjoying a family dinner with the people who were blessed enough to call her daughter, sister, and aunt. Rachel cherished her role as the fun one and was always up for a day of adventure.

Rachel had a passion for people and built a career in human resources. She was a hard-working, goal oriented professional, but even at work, her free-spirit turned people who began as acquaintances into some of her best friends.

Rachel was full of sass and sunshine. She was optimistic and stubborn. She loved the people she loved without reserve. She lit up a room and her hugs would brighten up your day.

She was so very deeply loved and she will be deeply missed.

Memorial contributions may be made to sponsor a camper to go to Circle Square Ranch. The Ranch was a special place for Rachel, and she would love the idea of getting kids outside to adventure and play.

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to

Family and friends will be received at the Toll Funeral Home, 55 Charing Cross St., Brantford on Saturday, November 30, 2019 from 11am to 1pm. A Memorial Service will follow in the Chapel at 1pm. Cremation has taken place.

In Rachel’s own words: This year I did things that I didn’t want to do, didn’t say things that I should have, and probably said things that I shouldn’t have. 25 was a year for some major personal realizations of who I am but mostly 25 has shown me that I am wildly honest. I know how flawed I am as a person and I’m really comfortable admitting that and when you get to that point when you finally reconcile with yourself who you are, you become confident in those aspects. Those faults, those character flaws, the scars. They are just as much a part of my complexion as my strengths. Sometimes, I can’t slow down or take a minute and every so often I get a moment like right now where I feel kind of finally comfortable talking about my inabilities. It’s where I’m willing to say “yeah I can’t slow down and you hope you can hold on and you can either love me for all of me with my faults and inabilities or……maybe not.” 25 really left me with the thought that being honest about your short comings is to be confident to who you are.
