Rachel A. Masson Obituary

Rachel Armstrong Masson passed away from unforeseen natural causes at her home in Greenfield, Massachusetts, on May 7, 2024. She was 46 years old. Rachel will be remembered as a devoted wife and loving mother, sister and friend. 
Rachel was born in Santa Cruz, California, to her parents John Beran and Elizabeth Armstrong. She lived in Northern California until she moved to Vermont where she attended Landmark College and later UMASS Amherst. As a young adult she settled in the Pioneer Valley, and early on became a foster parent for teen girls before having her own family. For the past 20 years, Rachel worked in college recruitment and admissions; first at Landmark College and most recently at UMASS Amherst.  
Rachel was vivacious, with an infectious laugh. She was known for entertaining and cooking phenomenal meals. She could strike up a conversation with anyone and put people at ease. She was an avid gardener and loved nothing more than spending time on her deck in the sun with friends and family. 
Rachel is survived by wife Mary-Beth Landy, her daughter Kai, and stepchildren Anna Barboza-McFarlane and Kendra Joujoute and her husband Reginald; grandchildren Zabi and Zaria; sister Elizabeth Wolfe and her husband Jacob; and niece Ruby and nephew Patrick. A celebration of life will be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Greenfield, Massachusetts, on Saturday, May 18th at 11:00 am with reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Wonderfundma.org which serves children involved in the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.  
Arrangements are under the direction of the Kostanski Funeral Home.  For condolences, please visit www.kostanskifuneralhome.com
