Rebekah was a devoted Christian and served her church faithfully by singing in the choirs of both Central Baptist Church and Southway Baptist Church of Brookhaven.
Rebekah's beautiful smile and outgoing personality made her a remarkable and memorable employee of the Oak Tree Restaurant, T. H. Perkins Furniture, First Bank and Cellular South—all of Brookhaven.
Her parents confirmed that God had given Rebekah so very many heavenly gifts, not the least of which has now become her legacy to everyone who knew her—the ability to laugh at common everyday situations.
