She retired in 2011 to spend time with her grandchildren. Rebecca was a member of the Little Bonne Femme Baptist Church in Columbia. In addition to all the care she gave at work, she also cared at home. She loved her children and grandchildren and attended as many of their events as she could. If anyone needed something, she would make sure they got it. In addition to raising her own two children, there were often times that a neighbor child or friend needed a place to crash and Becky would welcome them in. At home and at work Becky brought a big smile an plenty of care to everyone she met.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Becky was so kind to me. She opened her home to me on many occasions and treated me like one of her own. Even gave me a job during college. One of my fondest memories was spending Christmas at her home with the extended family. I hope your family is comforted by the many sweet memories of Becky.
