Raquel’s loving and caring nature was seen through her selfless service to her family and others. Raquel dedicated her life caring for her family by nurturing her siblings and eventually, her own children. Her numerous years of public service in the community reflected the best qualities in Raquel. Her calling led her to serve as a Preschool/Kindergarten Teacher’s Aide at Holy Trinity Catholic School Davenport, Iowa and as an Interpreter at Community Health Care, Moline, Illinois.

Raquel was always on the move. She loved music and dancing, especially when her son, Gerardo’s band, Crooked Cactus, was playing. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
