Rachel (Ricki) Atlas

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rachel (Ricki) Atlas, daughter of the late Debby (née Goodis) and Moe Atlas, born on June 21, 1947, in Montreal, PQ.  She is survived by her brother Bernie and sister-in-law Harriet as well as her nieces Lara and Randi.

Rachel moved to Toronto in 1976 where she worked as an editor for an educational publishing company, an art therapist supporting Veterans at Sunnybrook Hospital and, for the longest part of her career, as an elementary school teacher in both the private and public-school systems.  Rachel taught many individuals of a variety of ages throughout her lifetime and touched so many people in her professional and personal life.

A heartfelt thank you to all those family and friends who helped Rachel in immeasurable ways on her final journey. Specifically, cousins Donna and Bob, friends Fran, Caroly, Kathryn, and Louise and friend and neighbour Leslie who has graciously taken over the care of Rachel’s four-legged companion Ziggy Stardust.

Rachel was an incredibly creative, spiritual, and beloved human being. She will be greatly missed by innumerable friends and family. Our lives and hearts are forever illuminated for

having known her.

In lieu of flowers please consider donating to one of the following charities which Rachel humbly supported: Sick Kids Hospital, Canadian feed the children and the SPCA.
