Rachel Kuykendall

2022-03-23

Heaven gained a beautiful angel, Rachel Michelle Jane Eusey Kuykendall, on March 23, 2022. She spent her final days at the University of Florida Health, Jacksonville surrounded by family and friends who loved her dearly.

Born on November 21, 1987 in Jacksonville, Florida, to Shela Renea Austin and David Floyd Eusey. Rachel spent her childhood growing up in Quitman, Louisiana and attending Quitman High School. On September 11, 2009, Rachel married Joshua Kyle Kuykendall of Magee, Mississippi. They were blessed with two children. The family of four then moved to Fernandina Beach, Florida. Her children remember her as a loving and adventurous mother who always encouraged them to do their best.

During her childhood, Rachel was an excellent gymnast who also enjoyed horses, boating, and riding four wheelers. She went on to absolutely adore her role as a mother of two boys, Noah and Kaleb. She would often spend time with them fishing, hiking on trails, or swimming in the ocean and searching the sun-soaked beaches for shark teeth. Her positivity was contagious. Rachel’s love of life and her beautiful soul will not be forgotten.

Left to cherish her memory, two sons – Noah and Kaleb; husband, Joshua of Fernandina Beach, Florida; mother, Shela Austin of Start, Louisiana; father, David Eusey of Fernandina Beach, Florida; sister and brother-in-law, Sumer and Red Parnell of Ruston, Louisiana; grandmother, Althea Jane Eusey of Fernandina Beach, Florida; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.

Rachel was passionate about being an Organ Donor. In keeping with her loving and generous spirit, she gave the gift of life through organ donation. She was graciously honored for her donation with an Honor Walk on Saturday, March 26, 2022 at University of Florida Health in Jacksonville, Florida. A beautiful Celebration of Life was held on Sunday, March 27, 2022 on the beach of Seaside Park in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

In honor of Rachel, the family asks that you consider being an organ donor and giving the gift of life.
