Her art colleagues were special to her and they spent many hours together devising new lessons for their students. Aside from the Arts, Rebecca’s passions in life were her family and her beloved pets. She loved to sit on the beach with friends. She was a lifelong parishioner and choir member of the Rollstone Congregational Church in Fitchburg. She served on many committees at the church. Rebecca was also a longtime member of Camp Wellville, Inc. where she also served on the Board of Directors.
