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.
