*To keep forever scared the memory of those we have love and lost*
Rachel Blevins

Oakland freshman Rachel Blevins called her friends "the Wolfpack" in high school.

She called herself "momma wolf" and the other girls were her "cubs," lifelong friend Chad Martin said.

She wanted to someday be a mother, Martin said.

"That's why she started sewing and she always cooked for all of us," Martin said.

Blevins, 19, left behind memories of a caring and giving woman when she died early Saturday morning.

A 2003 graduate of Bowling Green High School, Blevins lived in Oakland with her parents, Chris and Kelly Blevins, and her brother Meritt, 11.

"Her mother said that God wanted to take her to be one of his angels and take care of people like she had been doing here," family friend Shelly Butler said.

Rachel Blevins had a glow about her and a vibrant personality, Martin said.

"She just wanted to do good to all people," Martin said. "She was a giver. Her whole life was about helping people."

Rachel Blevins was a member of Phi Mu sorority and loved to be around her friends, Butler said.

In high school, Rachel Blevins was a member of the prom committee, a part of school musicals and dramas, an office aide and a peer tutor for special needs students.

Rachel Blevins was especially gracious to the students she worked with, said Gary Fields, principal of Bowling Green High School. The students loved her and loved to be around her.

"She was the kind of person that everybody liked," Fields said. "She had a great smile. She was always very polite, always smiling."

Rachel Blevins was interested in interior design.

"She touched so many people's lives," Martin said. "Rachel accomplished what she set out to do and that was to always help others."

* Visitation for Rachel Blevins will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. today at Hardy and Son Funeral Home in Bowling Green and from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at Oakland Baptist Church. Funeral services will follow at 1 p.m. at the church. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to the Rachel Blevins Scholarship Fund through South Central Bank on Louisville Road.
