Life Legacy

Rachel Elizabeth Martinez was born on September 27, 1955 in Oakland, CA to proud parents Richard & Mary Martinez. She attended Fremont High School and Laney College.

In 1978 she married Eladio Gaeta. To this union of 39 years, one daughter, Amanda Gaeta, was born.

Rachel was employed as an Accountant for over 40 years, but her greatest joy was motherhood; something she was outstanding at doing.

In addition to raising her daughter and being a model wife, she loved to play Bingo and to bake. She was also a diehard fan of the three-time Super Bowl Champion Oakland Raiders and the five-time NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs; two teams she proudly supported during their respective championship runs and the lean years.

Rachel Elizabeth Gaeta entered into eternal rest on December 23, 2017 in Oakland, CA.

She leaves to mourn her passing her husband, Eladio; a daughter, Amanda Gaeta; mother, Mrs. Mary Martinez, siblings, Anita Gaeta, Maro Martinez, Anthony Martinez, Paula Martinez, Margaret Martinez and Auna Martinez. She leaves a host of relatives and friends as well.

Mrs.Gaeta was a loving wife, sister, aunt and friend whose kind ways and infectious laugh will be deeply missed.

There will be a visitation for Rachel on Saturday, December 30, 2017 from 9:30 A.M. - 11:30 A.M. here at Grissom's Chapel and Mortuary with a funeral to follow at 11:30 A.M.
