Rachel Lynn Buchanan, 42, of Oklahoma City, passed away Thursday evening, May 9, 2019, at Integris Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
Rachel was born May 8, 1977, to Allen Buchanan and Rebecca Hargrove and was one of three children. Rachel spent her early life in El Reno, graduating from El Reno High School in May of 1995.
Rachel was a very giving, nurturing and loving person, all qualities of which would shine through in her over 24 years working as a Medication Assisted Treatment Nurse (MAT), as well as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).
Although Rachel took great pride and loved her job working as a nurse, the job that meant most to her was being a mother to her three beautiful children, Ivy, Arlie and Dakota. Rachel was a beautiful person, from the inside and out, and will be missed dearly by all.
Surviving Rachel in passing are her children, Ivy Alexus Buchanan, Arlie Cane Buchanan and Dakota Raelynn Buchanan. Rachel is also survived by her sister, Tosha Buchanan; and parents, Rebecca and Tom Hargrove.
Rachel was preceded in passing by her brother, Levi Buchanan; and grandparents, Leta and Russell Horner and Wanda and Neborn Buchanan. Also preceding Rachel in passing was her grandmother, Margie Lacy.
A memorial service to remember and honor Rachel’s life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18, 2019, at First Freewill Baptist Church in El Reno. Services are under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home.
