Rachel Eileen von Tungeln, 16.
May 18, 2000 – April 8th, 2017
Rachel von Tungeln was the daughter of Kat Wasabi, owner of Geek Media.
Rachel passed away on Saturday night at home under the kind care of Denver Hospice as a result of complications of Juvenile Batten Disease. Rachel was diagnosed in 2009.
With the help of our customers and customers of The Good Geeks, we held 3 Road Races (Team Rachel Race 4 A Cure) and raised over $100,000 for Batten Disease Research. Rachel is forever free of her disease, blindness, and her wheelchair.
Rachel is survived by her Mom, sister Julie, and brothers, London and Boston. We miss her terribly.
A memorial fundraiser has been set-up through a close family friend.
