ESCALANTE, Rebecca 79, of Tucson, went home to be with the Lord on September 10, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Rebecca was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend--above all, she was an extraordinary woman of God. She is survived by her husband, Miguel; daughters, Eloina Saldivar (Richard) and Rosalva Zimmerman (John); grandchildren, Christopher, Elisa, Nathaniel and Andrew, as well as five great- grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son, Mike. Her final days were blessed by her family at her bedside and the care of Casa de la Luz Hospice. Arrangements by ADAIR FUNERAL HOME.
