Rebeca M. Loo

April 22, 1927May 10, 2019

Rebeca M. Loo, age 92. Beloved wife of the late Emilio Loo. Loving mom of Elio (Juanita), and Liliana (Jeffrey) Ware. Cherished Bita of Janahlee, Janie, Jirah, Jill and Josh. Great-grandma of Ilana, Altai, and Noelle.

Rebeca was a faithful woman who enjoyed all that creation had to offer - flowers, children, nature, family, feeding the birds, dancing, and cooking. She will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be held from 3-8 PM on Tuesday, May 14, at Marsh Funeral Home, 305 N Cemetery Rd in Gurnee. Life Celebration Service will be held at the funeral home at 6 PM.

Señora Rebeca's family will be traveling to New York this week to bury her next to her husband. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, we ask that you do an act of kindness as she would have done: give flowers to someone to cheer them up, call or help an elderly person, make a child smile, plant a flower in remembrance of a loved one, pray for peace and love and for those most in need, be thankful for life.

I loved “Bita”. As the family matriarch, she was the foundation of all of the good deeds and mitzvahs of her children and grandchildren.

I’ll never forget her love and care for our family. Specifically, her kindness towards Barbara are forever etched in our memories.

May her memory be a blessing to us all.

Mi mamita querida:
Gracias por todo lo que hiciste por mi y por todo el mundo - siempre sacrificandote por otros. Tu vida es un ejemplo. Te voy a extranar tanto aqui en la tierra, pero estaras siempre en mi corazon. Te quiero mucho mamita. Estamos abrazadas de aqui al cielo hasta que nos demos nuevamente un abrazo en el cielo.
