Rachel Leela Miriam Tipping, 49, of Willowick, Ohio, passed away peacefully at home, on June 1, 2023, after a brave battle with cancer.
Rachel is survived by her parents Eric and Sally Tipping, sister Maura, several aunts, uncles and cousins, partner Brian Campbell, cats Herman and Zora, and countless friends.
Rachel was born on December 24, 1973, and lived in Cleveland Heights, OH until her family moved to Virginia Beach, VA in April 1975. Rachel graduated from Frank W. Cox High School in 1992 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Communication from UNC Greensboro. Rachel moved back to the Cleveland area after college and began working for the Annashae Corporation. After leaving there Rachel worked for AAA East Central in Independence, OH for over twenty-four years. Rachel also held longtime part-time jobs at 10,000 Villages and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Rachel spoke fondly of her coworkers often and stayed in touch with many of them after she moved on to her next position. Rachel was an avid reader and animal lover, often volunteering at the Lake Humane Society. She was also passionate about art, movies, and travel. Rachel often felt restless unless she was pursuing one of these passions. Rachel loved the ocean, and her cremated remains will be placed there at a later date. Rachel’s kindheartedness and compassion will be missed.
The Tipping and Campbell families wish to thank the Seidman Cancer Center and Hospice of the Western Reserve for their dedicated care for Rachel during her battle with cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Lake Humane Society.
A Celebration of Rachel’s Life will be held Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 11AM at THE DeJOHN-FLYNN-MYLOTT FUNERAL HOME OF WILLOUGHBY HILLS, 28890 CHARDON ROAD (between Bishop Rd. and Rt. 91)
