Many knew her as Momma Rebecca as she opened her door throughout the years to give love and guidance to those that needed her helping hand.
Rebecca had a heart of gold and will be missed by so many.
Rebecca was a Shrine Lady and a member of The Daughters of the Nile. To know her was to love her. Rebecca never met a stranger and was a friend to all. Her smile lit up the darkest room and her laugh was absolutely infectious. Rebecca was always the first to lend a helping hand and loved her friends and family with everything she had and making memories every chance she could was one of her favorite things in life. To know Rebecca was to know true love, devotion and family. She will be missed immensely and would want us to all live each day with love, compassion and purpose in our hearts and never take a single day for granted.
