Heaven received another incredible angel June 24, 2015 when Raquel Wilson, daughter of Michael & Jenni Griffiths Wilson, passed away in Mesquite, Nevada after a valiant one-year battle with brain cancer. She was surrounded by her family, including her brothers and sister who sang sweet songs and expressed their love as she passed, knowing that families are forever. Born in San Diego, California on November 7, 1998, Raquel would have been a junior at Cedar High School where she participated in track, music, drama, improv and seminary. She loved singing, dancing, going to plays and musicals, swimming, reading learning and just hanging out with friends. She acted in the Utah Shakespeare Festival and its youth program, Playmakers, along with other community productions. Some of her most memorable roles were Dogberry in Iron County Commonwealth’s production of Much Ado About Nothing, Ruth in Playmaker’s production of Pirate’s of Penzance, Babette in CCCMT’s production of Beauty and the Beast, a narrator in Playmaker’s A Christmas Carol, and a member of the barbershop quartet in a homeschool community production of The Music Man. Raquel took many trips to do humanitarian projects with her father, family members and friends in Latin America. This service consisted of educating children about proper health and hygiene through puppet shows, playing with the kids, painting schools, distributing school uniforms, renovating health clinics, and her favorite, painting the nails of the little girls in Nicaragua. Well wishes and tributes on social media attest to the love Raquel gave and received from her many friends and acquaintances from school, the Cedar City community, Primary Children’s Hospital, and others who know and love her. Her smile, sense of humor, playfulness and kindness were contagious. She was a light to all who knew her. Raquel will be greatly missed!
