Before the Covid, I visited Rebecca monthly as part of the Shepherd Center Program. We became good friends. We had a good time debating religions, sharing fudge recipes, discussing the "joys" of getting older. One year we celebrated Thanksgiving by eating barbecued spare ribs just because that's what we wanted. Rebecca did not feel well during the time I knew her, but she always remained positive despite her many problems. I'm so glad that she was able to finish her last book. How wonderful to be able to leave something so meaningful to be remembered by. God's blessing Rebecca; we'll miss you

I can remember when the Commons moved to Terre Haute and Becky and Pam went to Honey Creek High School. I can also remember staring at Becky, because she was so pretty, in class when I had my chair leaning back and the next thing I know, it slipped out from under me and I fell on the floor. Of course, everyone was staring at me, but nobody knew why I had fallen. That's just a memory that I have of Becky. God bless !

I remember Rebecca as a gifted teacher and artist who freely shared her talents. Now that she has put aside her earthly burdens and ascended into the Light from whence she came, may we all rejoice in the memories of the time we spent with her. My condolences to Ashley and Ted and all of Rebecca's family. May you find peace during your bereavement.
