Rebecca (Becky) Sanders never met a stranger whether during her days as a medical transcriptionist at Maxwell Airforce Base, as a peddler through rural Alabama or while at the Village of Cook Springs. She loved all of God's creatures whether two-legged or four-legged as well as all things blooming. Rebecca was born to Adolphus C. and Grace Sims Irvin in Dudleyville, Alabama in 1932 where she learned from a young age to be strong and independent. These skills remained a part of who she was until she took her last breath on April 29, 2021.

She will be sorely missed by her family (Steve, Sally and Rebecca Smith of Cropwell, AL) as well as all of those whose lives she touched in her 89 years on this earth.

Rebecca Sanders was laid to rest at a private family service in Camp Hill, AL.
