BUCCIARELLI, Rachele M., age 61 of Riverview MI, passed away peacefully in her home May 6th 2023, after a courageous eleven month battle with cancer. 

She was a loving mother of two, Anthony (Kayla) Bucciarelli, Brigitte (Brent) Bitz. A Grandmother to four wonderful Grandchildren; Braiden, Cole, Ethen, & Myanna. Rachele is survived by her Mother Madeleine Marier, and Nephew Billy Bonner. She was preceded in death by her Husband Jim Bucciarelli, Fiancé Wayne Goldzweig, Father Maurice Marier, Brother Bruce Marier, Sister Michele Bonner, Father in law Raymond Bucciarelli, and Mother in Law Grace Bucciarelli. 

Rachele helped facilitate the opening of Motor City Casino. She worked as a craps dealer, black jack dealer, and pit boss for fifteen years. Later, employed by Lorioross Casino Events, she felt she helped make a difference for everyone at corporate fundraising events. “It’s all about the experience and making people happy” she would always say. In addition, She also worked as a private investigator, bounty hunter, and was a landlord of five properties. 

In her free time, Rachele enjoyed singing with her band, traveling, riding her Harley Davidson Motorcycle, writing scripts (she was working on a script for a tv show called Detroit Bounty Hunters), collecting Pennies “to find that million dollar penny that would set us up for life”, and spending time with her friends, family, and grandchildren.

Rachele touched the lives of many people.

She was fun, funny, positive, and inspirational. No matter how many obstacles life threw at her, she would hurdle and overcome with a glass half full/ can do attitude. 

“I’m living the dream!” - Rachele Bucciarelli
