I met Rachel through Staples. We use to work together, we worked in separate departments. I always enjoyed her company and eventually we started hanging out outside of our jobs. She was so funny, caring, and overall an amazing person to be around. She was an amazing friend and I wish I could spend more time with her. She was an amazing person! I will always cherish the memories.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Rachel’s passing. I was a customer of hers at Staples. She was always cheerful and was professional and proficient in her job. I had no idea she suffered from Lupus, a testament to the fact that she always put on her best face to the public. I will miss her and I know Staples will have a hard time filling her shoes. I’m sure you are very Proud of her!
I was so sorry to hear about Rachel. She was always a kind and positive person. Sending thoughts and prayers to the family.
Saddened and heartbroken losing a dear Lupus friend. Most sincere condolences to your family.

Rachael was the sweetest and funniest young woman I know.She was always so helpful and considerate at her jobAnd was great company when her and my son went out and about Checking out new restaurants and taverns in Fernandina. She was a special person
My heart is broken to learn of my friend's passing. I met Rachel through her work in the graphics department at Staples here in Fernandina Beach. She helped me design and print posters and cards for my book and always did such an awesome job. Rachel was a happy warrior, always cheerful and chatty, even on days when I could tell she was in pain. I will miss you, sweet Rachel. The world is a smaller place without you. You've earned your angel's wings. Fly high forever.
Rachel was such an uplifting person and was always "my Go TO" at Staples. She could work miracles and never made me feel silly for not knowing how to do something. Such a special person and I was Blessed to know her for many years, My prayers are with you.

Rachel was such a kind hearted friend. She was so warm and welcoming to everyone. She will be missed.

Cathy & Ralph - We are so sorry for your loss and will miss seeing Rachel's smile and "cameo" visit during our Gator Zoom calls. She was such a very sweet person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always.
Rachel was kind and thoughtful. She always made a point to reach out. If I invited her to something she would figure out how to be there even if she couldn't physically attend. I will never forget how she even remembered my children. I will miss her.
Rachel was such a joy to know. She and I shared medical stories related to Lupus because my daughter equally suffers from the same wicked disease. I am so sorry Lupus violated her life. Inspire of this, Rachel was so much fun and had the best attitude considering the situation. I am so sorry to she her go and I will miss her smiling face. Rest In Peace Rachel! Ralph and Cathy, I am so sorry for your broken hearts, I will be praying for you all!

Rachel was always so fun to be around. It didn't matter if you had seen her the week before or not for 5 years it was like no time had passed.

It saddens me to acknowledge the passing of Rachel, one who had fought so hard, but it is a joy to know her battle was fought, her victory has been won and she’s entered into the Master’s joy! She will forever be remembered for her kindness and beautiful spirit. My love and prayers are with my classmate, Mr. Conner Green, his parents, and their entire family as they face the days ahead.

Rachel always had a smile and was so sweet over the several years she came to our office. We are all deeply sadden by her loss. She will be missed. My love and prayers are with her family.
One of the most geniune, kind and funniest people I've ever met or had the privilege of becoming friends with. My deepest condolences to Rachel's family and friends.
My love and hugs go out to all of Rachel’s family and friends. Extra hugs for Cathy and Ralph. Rachel was always smiling when I run into her. She fought the fight and kept the smile in her face. I will miss talking with her at Staples and running into her around town. Heaven has a special angel. Love and Hugs, Susan
My heart is devastated for the Lewis-Green family. Rachel always had such a sweet spirit. I had the privilege of watching her grow from a baby into a little girl that would enjoy dance parties when I’d babysit her, then blossoming into an amazing young lady who loved being an Aunt, and eventually bonding over our love for Las Vegas as adults. Anytime you lose a friend that you consider family the grief is overwhelming. Rachel, you will always be loved and remembered!
Rachel was a sweet and caring person I worked at Staples with her in the print shopShe would always tell me stories of her nephew Forest
Rachel!!!! Always a laugh, a smile, a quick jab (at her mom usually) or comment to keep the conversation going. Rachel never let on if she was hurting or in a bad mood when we would run into each other at sunset downtown or passing on the street. To Ralph, Cathy and the family, my heart goes out to you. Rachel will be missed greatly. Peace be with her now, the suffering and pain is over.🥲 💚
Rachel's passing is so sad and so hard. She will be missed so terribly by so many because she touched so many lives. Always, kind, funny, and thoughtful. Her sweet smile and hello hug made me feel special. I will never forget her.
Mrs Cathy and Mr Ralph this is such a great loss and it just break my heart. I can’t imagine a world without her smiling face.I never saw her complain even though I know she was always in pain. Always positive. Such a great friend,I’m gonna miss her so much!
I’ve known Rachel all my life, she was always kind to me and always had a smile on her face. She was apart my family her whole life and we miss her dearly! My heart is breaking for the entire Green family! She will never be forgotten! Rest easy my sweet friend!
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Rachel a few times and she was always so sweet and such a blessing.
Rachel was my best friend and my sister. She was the best, I will miss all the times that we had fun hanging out. Rest In Peace my love and until we meet again 💕💜
I’ll always remember her calling me Sunshine and always being there for me. Even though I live all the way in NYC. She was one of a kind and I’ll never forget my friend. I’m truly heartbroken!

Lupus brought Rachel & I together, but we bonded over conversations, about life in general living with Lupus. I looked forward to our conversations about anything & nothing. Rachel had a funny bone, as she would post something funny in our group online. She would always find something funny about what was going on & I will miss that humor & wit. But now My thoughts & prayers are with Her Family, Friends & for all the many touches Rachel left on Us all. Rest Well My Butterfly Warrior 🦋 🤺💜 🙏🏾
Rachel added joy to our lives when we would need it most. She befriended without question and gave positive vibes everyday. Many will miss her and remember her bubbling enthusiasm.
Rachel was a great friend to me and my family. She spent many hours on the front porch with my parents making their days a little brighter. She was one of the strongest people I’ve ever known and spread positivity wherever she went. Rachel, I will love and remember you always.
Rachel was a great inspiration to all. She was a wonderful friend and co worker. She will be missed dearly
Ralph, Cathy, and family, I can't imagine what you are going through at this time. My heart hurts for yours. While we moved away when our kids were little, I know her parents and knew her grandparents. From what I have read, it sounds like Rachel was good people like the rest of her family. I wish I could be there to give you guys a hug. Know that I will be thinking about and praying for you guys today and in the days ahead. May the God of all peace give you comfort.
Cathy and Ralph I am so sorry for your loss... Rachel was such a Sweetheart and I will miss her tagging along on our walks... Heaven has gained an Angel...You are missed Rachel...God Bless the Green Family 😇
Cathy and Ralph, we were so saddened to hear your daughters passing. Can’t even begin to imagine what y’all are going through. Please know we are thinking of you and praying for peace and comfort for your family. Big hug!
Cathy & Ralph, I am so sorry for this great loss. Rachel will be loved and missed, always, by all of us. Much love to you both and your family.
I got to know Rachel while working with her mom. Although I didn't know her well, I know that she was a genuinely nice person with a very sweet soul. I know her family and friends will miss her very much.
This is so heartbreaking. As her former teacher and volleyball coach this is difficult for me. Rachel was such a sweet soul and we will miss her so much. Praying for comfort and healing for Raleigh and family. Love you Rachel💔
Rachel Catherine Green
Rachel Catherine Green, 35, of Fernandina Beach passed away Sunday, August 28, 2022 at Baptist Medical Center, Nassau.
She was born in Jacksonville and was the daughter of Ralph Green and Catherine Lewis. Rachel called Fernandina Beach home for all her life.
She attended local schools and was a member the Fernandina Beach High School Class of 2005. She earned her Associate of Arts degree from FSCJ. Rachel had worked at Staples in Fernandina Beach, in the copy center, for the last 13 years. She was a delightful young woman who was loved by her customers. She had the knack for being friends with anyone. Over her young life Rachel had many physicians. Because of her outgoing personality, she became “one of the family” at nearly all her physician’s offices.
Rachel enjoyed nothing more than to shop and find a good deal. Sometimes she was called the “Queen of Couponing” and could always search out the best deals. After her family, most especially her nephews and her dog, Susie, her favorite things were anything “Tie-Dyed”, Brittany Spears and Tim Tebow. Rachel was inquisitive and often wanted to know everything she could about things which interested her. Her family recalled how going out to eat would sometimes be an adventure, in and of itself. She would ask a multitude of questions about the items on the menu, how they were prepared and what possible options were available.
She was predeceased by her grandparents, Carl Green and Betty and Chester Lewis.
She leaves behind her parents, Catherine Lewis and Ralph Green of Fernandina Beach; her brothers, Raleigh (Emily) Green of Fernandina Beach and Connor Green of Orlando; her paternal grandmother, Sippie Green of Fernandina Beach, those special nephews she loved so much, Forrest, Major, Baron, and Titan Green; her aunts, Diane Haymans and Sandra (Jimmy) Shelton of Yulee and Carlene (Mike) O’Kelly of Maryland; her uncles, Ted Green of Fernandina Beach, Raymond Lewis and Bobby Lewis, both of Yulee and several cousins, Joshua (Allison) Lewis, Adam (Kristen) Lewis, Andrew (Chrystal) Lewis, Penny Haymans and James Shelton.
The family will receive friends Friday, September 2, 2022 at Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors from 5:00 until 7:00 PM.
She will be laid to rest during a graveside service on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 11:00 Am at Conner-Green Cemetery in western Nassau County.
The family asks Rachel be remembered by contributions, in her name, to the Lupus Foundation of America, Southeast Region, 2300 High Ridge Road, Suite 375, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426. www.lupus.org/southeast.
