Rachel Hatfield-Winkler, age 37, died tragically in her home in Cameron Park on Monday, Feb. 27, 2012. She is survived by three small children: Eva, age 4, Ariel, age 3, and Alex, age 8 months; her parents, Don Hatfield and Diana DeLoach; and brothers, Caleb, David and Matthew.

To know Rachel was to love Rachel. She embraced life with both arms and exuded an enthusiasm and grace that was unparalleled. She was a talented artist, like her father. She enjoyed adventure, traveling and the outdoors. Her greatest passion was for her family, and she adored her children endlessly. She cherished her friendships and loved unconditionally.
