Quietly and gently while listening to her favorite song and holding her son’s hand, Rebecca passed at the Algoma Manor in her 82nd year.
Predeceased by her best friend and husband of 52 years Allan Sword (2013). Loving mother of Duncan (Pam), Ken (Rene Cappelli) and Carita (Adrian Epp). Wise and treasured Grandma of Alicia, Andrew, Devin, Frankie, Matthew and Maresa. Fondly remembered by her family and friends from the West Coast as well as the Haileybury and Larder Lake areas.
Rebecca took great pride in her contributions to education. She was a music lover, story teller, musician and comedian. She enjoyed reading and the outdoors. Rebecca lived a rich and full life. She was an inspiration to all who knew her.
The family wishes to thank the residents and staff at the Algoma Manor for their compassion and support.
