How does one describe someone who has lived a legacy of faith, of love and of integrity as Rebecca Russell? After graduating from Waco High School in 1948, Rebecca used her skills of building relationships with customers and co-workers and her organization skills to be known as a trusted receptionist and accounting analyst. She worshipped and served her Lord, Jesus Christ at First Baptist Church of Waco for over 50 years. She taught bible study classes and participated in various service opportunities, including Meals on Wheels, and provided leadership in a ministry called “MAGIC – Mature Adults Growing in Christ” Club. She developed long term relationships with friends from FBC Waco and others she met at work and in life. Rebecca loved to travel, was an avid reader, and cherished time with her family. She loved and was loved by all. She will be remembered and missed.
