Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, Rebecca Lynne Leita, slipped quietly from this earthly life at the age of 60 years on Saturday, September 23, 2023.
She was preceded by her father, Keith Eugene Fredericks Sr., stepson, Ben Huselton, and her dear friends Annette Carroll and Thelma Smith. To cherish her memory, Rebecca leaves behind her husband, Randall Leita; her brother Keith Eugene (“Gene”) Fredericks Jr.; her sister, Leslie Weiss; her daughters Amber Alegria and Kristen Huselton; her son Shane Cole; her stepdaughter Alexis Leita and stepson Jeremy Leita; her grandchildren Zamyan Alegria, Zafyria Alegria, Davina Espinoza, Trinity Raisman, Quinn Raisman, Arin Molina, and Jory Cano; her nieces and nephew Ariana Saldivar, Ava Wilson, Alexa Wilson, Adeline Fredericks, and Aliza Fredericks, Evan Weiss and Olivia Weiss as well as a host of families and friends.
Born on June 18, 1963, Rebecca (Beckye) was born and raised in Victoria, Texas. She was a graduate of Victoria High School and enrolled directly into the nursing program at Victoria College. Upon her nursing graduation from Victoria College, she faithfully served at Citizens Medical Center for 37 years nursing patients back to health while dispensing jokes and the occasional bits of tough love.
Beckye was a voracious reader, gardener, and animal lover. She was never without a book or an animal on her lap and enjoyed making meals for her family that she picked from her garden. Upon her life after work, she channeled her nurturing spirit to volunteer for rescues and fostering animals. Her family was endlessly bemused at the number of “foster fails” she acquired through the years. Beckye was never afraid to open her heart and give her time to those in need, whether it was through donating time and money to animal rescues, calling an old friend, or shepherding loved ones through their final days.
Beckye will be remembered by her family for hand-sewing Halloween costumes and dresses, taking them on family vacations on a shoe-string budget, encouraging crazy stunts like roller skating inside the house, cracking jokes, and giving advice. She doted on her grandchildren, nieces and nephews and will be dearly missed by them.
In memory of Beckye, the family asks that you donate to local animal rescue organizations such as Dorothy O’Connor, Pitty Paws Bully Rescue, or Acres of Animals.
Beckye’s celebration of life will be held Saturday, October 7th 11am at the Telferner United Methodist Church.
