Rachel Sue Ellen Fonda, age 43, of Ardmore, passed away Friday, March 8, 2013, at her home. Memorial services will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, 2013, in The Chapel at Griffin-Hillcrest with David Decker and Johnny Nipp officiating.

Rachel was born May 2, 1969, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

She attended and graduated school in New Mexico. She was always working to improve herself and always put her son first and provided the best she could for him. For all who knew her the best, they would know the struggles she has gone through and everything she had done to get to today. She will not be forgotten and will be remembered as a caring, fun and social person. May she rest in peace. Rachel moved to Ardmore in 1992, then moved to Denver, Colorado, for a year, but returned to settle in Ardmore. She attended Murray State College in Ardmore. Rachel began working at Walmart for the past two and a half years. She enjoyed reading books, listening to music, taking her dogs for a ride at the lake and spending time with her granddaughter.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Rachel is survived by her son, Gaige Taylor Burnes, of Ardmore; and two granddaughters, Aiyanna Burnes and Sunny Burnes, all of Ardmore.
