Rachel Ann Wrightson Obituary
June 21, 1958 - February 23, 2017 Rachel Wrightson of Walnut Creek, CA, passed away peacefully last Thursday after a 14-month battle with breast cancer. Rachel was born in Monrovia, CA, to William and Dorothea Schellenberger. She was an exceptional athlete and scholar at Montclair High School, and later earned an Associate degree from Chaffey College. Above all else, Rachel was a devoted mother. She raised her children as a single mother and put them first throughout her life. She was a positive influence in the lives of everyone she met. She is survived by her parents, her sisters (Ruth Johnson and Martha Schellenberger), her son (Brian Wrightson, and wife Jane), her daughters (Shannon Wrightson and Cynthia Coronado), and her grandson (Donovan Wrightson). A memorial in her honor will take place Friday, March 3rd at 1pm at the Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge. Donations may be made in her name to UCSF (where she received excellent care) by visiting https://makeagift.ucsf.edu/hospitals and selecting the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center.
