On Friday, October 1, 2021, Rebecca Suzanne Duffey, loving wife and mother to two children, passed away at the age of 45.
Rebecca was born on August 11, 1976, in West Covina, CA, to Robert and Arlene Duffey.
Rebecca had the most beautiful, generous soul. Her passion for helping others, incredible patience and selflessness, and infectious spirit were evident to all who knew her. Children always flocked to her, whether she was on a mission trip or working in the local community. Rebecca was an incredibly talented and creative individual. It wasn't unusual to hear her singing praise and worship songs as she moved through her day. She played guitar and sang, often leading worship for her church. Rebecca was a prolific writer. Deeply sensitive and insightful words, poems, and short stories flowed out of her pen with ease. Rebecca also had a zest for life. She was daring and athletic, and you would often find her bruised and scraped from a recent adventure. She was very competitive and always strived for first place. Rebecca grew up in and around a nursery, and gardening brought her immense peace and joy. She spent countless hours in her garden teaching Grant how to tend to all the living things under her care. Rebecca was committed to her family first. It was no secret she would go to the ends of the earth for them. Her love for her wife is boundless and eternal. Above all else was her steadfast love for Jesus Christ, from which she never wavered.
Rebecca was preceded in death by her mother, Arlene, and her father, Robert. She is survived by her wife Rebecca, two children Grant and Jude, siblings Matthew and Shari, Aunts Maire and Caroline, Uncle BJ, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday October 9, 2021, at St. Michaels United Methodist Church on Jamaica in Lake Havasu City at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Havasu Community Health Foundation Parkinson’s Strong and Steady Program. Help keep Rebecca’s dream, and the community program that she was so passionate about, alive.
