Rebecca Ann Larsen

AGE: 78 • New Castle

Passed away peacefully on Monday, August 4, 2014 at Christiana Hospital surrounded by her family.

Born in Indiana, PA, Rebecca was the daughter of the late John and Gertrude (Morgan) Baxter. She worked as a nurse for the Delaware Division Hospital for six years and later was a volunteer at the Blood Bank of Delaware. Her husband, John M. Larsen, predeceased her in 2003.

Rebecca always helped and cared for others. If it wasn't being the neighborhood nurse, she would be volunteering at our schools, the Blood Bank and Civic Associations. She started her volunteer work at the Blood Bank of Delaware in 2003. During the course of her 11 years of service, she earned herself awards for most volunteer hours for the year. She would regularly speak of the endearing friendships she formed. Rebecca frequently spent time among her many friends from the Blood Bank, church group and others who she dearly cared about.

She will be dearly missed by her daughters and sons-in-law, Lynnea A. and Paul Chickadel of Wilmington and Aleshia and David Hopkins of Lincoln University, PA; and her beloved grandchildren, Jennifer L. Bash, Keyona Hopkins and Chandler Hopkins. Also surviving are her brothers and sisters-in-law, Frederick and Charlene Baxter of Wilmington and Jeffrey and Lisa Baxter of Elkton, MD; and her sisters and brothers-in-law, Connie and the late Willie J. Stewart of Elkton, MD, Janet and Robert Kelly of Wilmington and Debbie and Bill Franey of Wilmington.

Friends and family are invited to visitation on Thursday, August 7th between 6 and 8 PM at Mealey Funeral Home, 2509 Limestone Road, Wilmington where funeral services will be held on Friday morning at 10:30 AM. Interment will follow at Gracelawn Memorial Park, New Castle. MealeyFuner (302) 652-5913
