Alice "Rachel" Dyer Reaves, 53, passed away Monday, June 19, 2017 at Baptist East Hospital. She was born in 1963 to Amanda W. Dyer and the late John W. Dyer. She was also preceded in death by her father-in-law Carl Reaves. She was a resident of Hernando, MS. where she made a welcoming home and life with her husband and two daughters. Rachel's presence was known before she ever entered a room. Her beautiful, lightning quick smiles and smart wit brought laughter and warmth to those who knew her. She was loved by so many who enjoyed her unique free-spirited way of facing life head on, "it is what it is" and not letting anything or anyone tell her she couldn't, shouldn't or they wouldn't …she would. She leaves behind to carry on her love for life, her husband David Reaves, her two daughters, Skylar Morgan Reaves and Kristin Reaves, her mother Amanda W Dyer, brother John W Dyer Jr, nephew Kyle A Dyer, sister Elizabeth L Dyer-Wiles (Marshall), nieces Canon and Vaedin Wiles, nephew John Marshall Wiles, mother-in-law and step-father-in-law Jo and Tom Vanhorn and indispensable sister-in-law Cindy Reaves. Rachel would be honored for you to spread her love for life. A celebration will be held July 7th, 2017, 5:00 P.M. at the Hills at Hernando Country Club, 1000 Bradley Drive, Hernando, MS. A private burial will be held at Elmwood Cemetery. Donations can be sent to St Jude or the Memphis Humane Society.
