Rachel Calabrese Obituary, Death – On Monday, June 30, 2014, Rachel Calabrese passed away, and it is with the utmost sadness that we share the news of her passing with you at this time. Please accept our deepest condolences. Rachel Ellis was born after her parents, Hume and Lenore (Lee), had both passed away, so she was unable to know them in their lifetime. Because Rachel worked at Minto Memorial High School for more than 30 years, she was able to influence the lives of a number of different generations of students and the families of those students. She had an effect on virtually every member of the community, whether it was in her capacity as a librarian, English teacher, tutor, or Vice-Principal, as a result of her dedication to the students in her care and her enthusiasm for the field of education.
Her commitment to the students in her care and her enthusiasm for the field of education. This accomplishment was a direct result of her unwavering commitment to the academic success of the students entrusted to her care as well as her passion for the field of education. It is further evidence of her dedication to the achievement of success for the students in her classroom that she went on to earn a Master of Education degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1993. Rachel is survived by her devoted husband of 41 years, Michael, their two sons, Bradley (who is married to Chanelle) and Darren (who is married to Tammy), as well as their granddaughter, Harriet.
Bradley is married to Chanelle, and Darren is married to Tammy. Rachel is survived by their granddaughter. Rachel’s husband Michael, who has been by her side for the past 41 years and was completely devoted to her, also survives her. Rachel also has two additional sisters who go by the names Janet Moses (Don) and Barbara Ryan, but she will have to say goodbye to both of them (Vince). Rachel’s other interests, such as tending to her garden and spending time with her family and friends, were also things that she was very passionate about. Rachel took great pride in both of these pursuits.
When she entertained guests on the deck while holding a glass of homemade wine in her hand, one of her favorite things to do was to make a point of pointing out the careful attention to detail that had been put into everything from “the fence in” onward. She would get started at the very beginning and work her way forward from there. Her untimely passing will be lamented by the entirety of the community, but it will be felt the most keenly by her family and the people she held dearest in her life. These are the people with whom she shared the times in her life that were the happiest and most memorable times in her life. On the afternoon of Sunday, July 6th, 2014, at two o’clock in the afternoon, there will be a memorial service held in honor of the deceased. After that, there will be a reception held at the home of the Calabreses immediately after that.
