It is impossible to put into words the person that Rebecca was. She was a force of nature that cared so much about her family, friends and the work that she did at Friendship Village. Rebecca touched so many people over the years and it’s hard to imagine coming down the hall in the Health Care Center and not hearing her laugh long before you see her smile. FVC will never be the same and I’m heartbroken over this loss. Rebecca had a beautiful spirit, she was fun and she took me under her wing and helped raise me up. Rebecca taught me about respect, communication, and tough love. She cheered the loudest for me, scolded me the hardest and loved me the deepest. She was much more than just one of my co-workers; she was a member of my family. I love her dearly and hate that she is gone, but her spirit lives on in the family and the stories that she left behind. Sleep with angels Rebecca, you are so loved.

Rebecca,
God Bless you for who you were and for being a great friend and co-worker. I will miss all of our good times together and hearing about your children and grandchildren.
Rebecca loved my prank calls to her while she was at work I got her every time, she had no idea it was me asking all those crazy and confusing questions. Of course once I told her it was me she would burst out laughing…R.I.P. my dear friend.

So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. It was never a dull moment when Becky was around. She always made us laugh. What a wonderful memory to leave behind. Our thoughts are with you.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Rebecca’s passing. I worked with her at FVC many years ago and she always made me smile! One of my greatest memories of her was in the winter and we were projected to get three inches of snow. She was freaking out! I grew up in the snow belt and teased her that when they get 3 FEET of snow in Columbus, then she could get excited. She had the most beautiful smile and she will be missed.

Kerry Teegarden - Feb 20, 2013

I will keep you and your family in my prayers through this tough time in your lives! Rebecca was such a wonderful, amazing and caring person that we all loved dearly! I have worked here at Freindship Village with her for the past 14 years and she always brought laughter and always had a special way of brightening all of our days with her smile alone. We will greatly miss her always!
Sincerely,
Kerry Teegarden, Front Desk Receptionist at Friendship Village of Columbus
