Rebecca H. Jones
Portsmouth - Rebecca (Becky) H. Jones, 54, born August 4, 1958 in LaGrange, GA, died March 27, 2013 in Portsmouth, VA. She was the daughter of Wilbur E. & June E. Douthit Jones of Columbus, GA. A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, April 13, at 12 p.m. at her home in Portsmouth. A memorial service with full military honors will be conducted at Striffler Hamby Mortuary, 4071 Macon Rd., Columbus, GA 31907, at a later date.
As a Navy (Retired) Petty Officer First Class, Becky proudly served with distinction in the U.S. Navy for 18 years, with Pacific tours on submarine tender, USS Dixon, and carrier tender, USS Samuel Gompers. Becky graduated from Hardaway High School in Columbus, GA, and attended Troy State University, Tidewater Community College, and Old Dominion University.
Becky enjoyed the companionship of her beloved "Rascal," and the company of her very special close friends. Becky selflessly cared for her mother the last 5 years, before her own health declined. She enjoyed sports and was a loyal fan of Auburn University. Becky also served as a faithful sponsor for NA.
Besides her mother, she is survived by a sister, Barbara (Bobbi) J. Smith (William) of Columbus, GA; nieces, Andrea Barnes (Andrew) of Waverly, AL, Kippi Schneller (Joe) of Castle Rock, CO, nephew, Andrew Smith (Shannan) of Woodstock, GA; eight great-nephews & one great-niece; several aunts & uncles, and many cousins.
Those desiring to honor Becky, may make a donation to their local animal shelter in her memory. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.snellingsfuneralhome.com
