Coworkers remember Rachel Guzman

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Less than 24 hours after Rachel Guzman was found in Big Spring, friends and co-workers pay their respects to the woman they loved.

Evelyn Marez was a previous coworker of Guzman's, who knew her from her time working for Dr. Subhash Batra.

"There's always going to be a void in this office for Rachel," Marez said, "and our prayers are going toward her family. She's going to be missed. She touched so many patients' lives, I mean she went out of her way to help."

Many of those patients called Dr. Batra's on Thursday and shared their memories of Guzman.

"We got calls this morning just wanting to know was that really Rachel," said fellow coworker Rochelle Childrers. "And they asked and we said yes, and it was like I can't believe it. She's very helpful, she's very on top of her work, she always got back with them to check, and even outside of work, she always said hello to them. She was a person that if she had something set in her mind that she wanted to do, she was going to do it, and she was a very good achiever."

Guzman left Dr. Batra's office in January to work at Covenant, but she remained close to her former coworkers.

"She was always helping out the girls transitioning whenever she was leaving," Marez said. "She was just really sweet and really helpful, she lived for her grandbabies - that's all she talked about were her grand babies."

All of her coworkers said they felt like something was missing.

"We laughed today," said coworker Chelsea Moreno, "but not like we usually are, and the doctor was kind of off today."

The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
