With deep gratitude for the life that was given, Rachel McCain, 79, passed peacefully at home on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14th, with her daughters by her side.
She was born on July 7, 1943, in Ordway, Colorado, to Joe and Ricarda Corrales. She grew up in Scottsbluff, attending Victory Hill School and Scottsbluff High School, where she developed a love for learning that would stay with her for the rest of her life.
She had several passions, including sewing, dancing, and reading. She was a gifted seamstress and spent countless hours creating beautiful pieces of clothing for herself and her customers. She also loved to dance and could often be found twirling and spinning around the house with a big smile on her face. But perhaps her greatest passion was her spiritual life. She spent many hours cultivating her faith and prayerful practices and was deeply committed to the study and understanding of life and life’s mysteries. She was known for her unwavering faith in God.
We will miss her spiritual counsel and will always remember her steadfast faith, attention to beauty, and curiosity about life. May that curiosity now be fulfilled and may she rest in peace with God.
Rachel is survived by her daughters Sabrina (Robbie) Mann and Monique (Matt) Larsen; grandchildren Jonathon Carpenter, Sierra Overton, Daniel Rivera, and Diego Larsen (All of whom she loved spending time with on the family farm when they were little); and great-grandchildren Harrison, Cosette, and Lulu Overton.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James McCain.
A Celebration of Life gathering will be hosted by her daughters on her birthday, July 7. It is respectfully requested that in lieu of gifts, memorials in Rachel’s honor be made to Regional West Hospice, 3701 Avenue D, Suite #2204, Scottsbluff, NE.
