Rebecca Westmoreland Parks Healy
Sun City, FL - Rebecca Westmoreland Parks Healy died peacefully at 92 on April 29, 2021 in Sun City Center, Florida. She was preceded in death by her husband, Timothy, and is survived by her five children: Anne Healy in Blackhawk, CO, Tim Healy in Tampa, FL, Sue Geers in Berkshire, NY, Patty Houchen in Cincinnati, OH and Carolyn Healy of Sun City Center FL and her many grand- and great grandchildren. She is also survived by her longtime companion and best friend, Barbara Butler, in Sun City Center, FL.
The daughter of Melmoth and Buda Parks, she was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. She remained there until she met her husband, Timothy Healy, who was in the Air Force. For many years the military would take them across the United States with their five children. After retiring from the military, the Healy family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. They enjoyed bowling and were avid members of their new community. They retired to sunny skies and sandy shores in Sun City Center, FL in 1987.
After her husband passed away in 1990, Rebecca remained active in the SCC community through the Lapidary Club, library and her great love of music. She enjoyed the company of her friends and neighbors and spending time at the pool. The joy of her life, though, were her grand- and great grandchildren. Each visit with them was more special than the last, and her home was filled with memories and photos of their times together. It was a life well lived.
Final arrangements are being made by the National Cremation and Burial Society, 308 College Avenue East, Ruskin, FL. 33570.
