Nye, Rebecca D.

November 16, 1963 - April 11, 2014

Rebecca Denise McGuire Cox Nye, born in Dallas, TX on 11/16/63, passed peacefully from this life surrounded by her family & friends on 4/11/14.

Rebecca known by her family & friends as Becca, Ms. Becky or Bek was known by many and never met a stranger, she always found someone she knew anywhere she went!

Becca loved to talk and be with her family and friends no matter the occasion.  Her friends were numerous and came from all aspects of her life.

Bek’s passions were many:  reading, music, rescuing stray animals or opening her home to any teenager who needed guidance and a roof over their head.

Rebecca’s primary passion in life was her family, her husband Rick whom she married on 8/12/88 and raising their three children:

Lexington “Lexi” (24), Mikaela (19) and Durance “Bubba” (16).  Being a wife & mom gave her many rewarding experiences such as helping Rick run his own business and helping all 3 children with their many sporting events.

Ms. Becky was the mom always out working the concessions stands at the games even when it was 100+ degrees outside.

Rebecca graduated high school from Newman Smith in Carrollton, TX, class of 82.

In addition to her immediate family she is survived by her mother, Sheila Cox; Rick’s parent’s, Larry & Betty; her father, Frank McGuire and her half siblings:  Misty,

Chuck, Mickey and Sherry.

Rebecca was preceded in death by her beloved grandmother, Mary “Ga/Gar” Mayer.

In lieu of flowers, family asks that donations be made to Irving’s Humane Society or Brighter Tomorrows in Irving, TX.  A mass to celebrate  Rebecca’s life will be celebrated at Holy Family Nazareth Church in Irving, Texas on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 10:00 am.

Becky, although you haven’t been gone it already seems like forever. You are my big sister and I know we didn’t see each a lot but when we did we picked up right where we left off. Yes as Lexi said you love to talk and never met a stranger, we are so much more alike than we ever thought. I promise you I will stay in the kids lives forever. I guess you can keep my mom and granny company I am sure y’all have a lot to talk bout. Love. the Baby Sister Sherry

One of the most memorable things I remember about you is one day me and my mom we ran out of gas and you were busy stuck with the kid’s dentist appointments and you dropped everything and cancel those appointments to bring me my mom gas and I will never forget that that just showed me how much of a great God Mom you were in a great friend to my mother I miss you every single day and it seems like it never gets easier which I don’t think it will because having you not here still shakes my soul I don’t know why God wanted you so early but you must have had a really good plan I think of you and look up in the sky and just get teary-eyed but then I know you wouldn’t want me to cry but it’s so hard because you were such a great woman truly a great woman I’ve never met anybody like you and never will I cannot wait to be reunited with you in heaven please keep watching over me and my mom we miss and love you so much BeccaFlex
