Rebecca graduated from Maconaquah High School in 2000 and graduated from Anderson University in 2004 earning her bachelor's degree in nursing. Always full of spirit, she was a vibrant cheerleader in both High School and College, which was a big part of her life. After graduation, she moved to Seattle, Washington and worked as a Pediatric registered nurse at Swedish hospital for 5 years. She then returned to her home state and worked for IU Health and Peyton Manning in various pediatric positions. Her final position was as a hospice case manager.
She was very selfless, compassionate and thoughtful and was willing to help anyone. She was always more interested in listening and talking about your life than her own. Rebecca was a member of Redeemer Church in Indianapolis and also attended Amboy Friends Church in her youth with her family.
