Cecilia Rebecca Besecker, 22, of Dallas Township, passed away after being involved in a fatal car accident in the Allentown area on Thursday, June 28, 2012.

CC, as she was known, was born in Geisinger Hospital, Wilkes-Barre, on September 29, 1989. She was born 15 minutes before her twin sister, Courtney. She was the daughter of Theresa M. (Jacobs) and Robert L. Besecker Jr., Dallas Township.

She graduated from Dallas High School in 2008 and studied Fashion Merchandising at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, Pa.

CC attended and received her sacraments at the Church of St. Therese in Shavertown.

Surviving, in addition to her parents and twin sister, Courtney, are her older brother, Patrick, Harrisburg; younger brother, Andrew, Dallas; paternal grandparents, Robert and Margaret Besecker, Dallas; maternal grandparents, Thomas and Frances Jacobs, East Greenville; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins throughout Pennsylvania.

Friends are invited to join CC's family at St. Therese's Church, corner of Pioneer Avenue and Davis Street, Shavertown, for a Mass of Christian Burial to be held Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. The Rev. James J. Paisley will officiate. Interment will be made in Evergreen Cemetery, Shavertown. Friends may call today 4 to 7 p.m. at the Harold C. Snowdon Funeral Home Inc., 140 N. Main St., Shavertown.

In keeping with CC's bright personality and positive outlook, we are going to make this a colorful gathering. She liked polka dots and "pearls" so if you have them, wear them, make CC proud.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the "CC Besecker Collection for the Arts" payable to and in care of St. Therese's Church, 61 Davis St., Shavertown, PA 18708.
