On May 6th, Rebecca Grace Roueche’, of Charleston received an offer for an appointment she could not refuse. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus and guaranteed job security. Her new mission takes her to a place where she will be singing in a heavenly choir, organizing the altar guild, and reading the Word to her heart’s content. Music, laughter and love will be in endless supply.
Becky left detailed instructions for her family to celebrate her life. We will remember her smile, her warmth, her energy, her dedication to her family, her love of animals and passion for the many projects she undertook. She worked very hard all her life and made a huge difference in the lives of many. She was a firm believer in education and the empowerment of others.
