Rebecca Factor, 40 years young, went home to be with the Lord on April 18, surrounded by her many friends and family, after a short, but valiant fight with cancer.
Becky's great sense of humor stayed with her until the end. We know where she is and we're sure that the place God prepared for her has a stage and a karaoke machine. Heaven is in for a great surprise! "Then I count my blessings that you're mine for always. Sing away, sing away, my darling we'll sing away. This is our kingdom of days."
Becky was preceded in death by her parents, Ann and Dick McKinley. She is survived by her best friend and soul mate, Gerry and their dog Mattie. She is also survived by sisters and brother, Sherry (Phil) Tafoya, Lyn Csonka, Bobby (Debbie) Weaver, Patty, Deanne (Brad). She is survived by her second family, mother and father-in-law, Bernard and Mary Factor; brothers and sisters-in-law, Buddy, Maureen (Dick) Cannon, Mike (Sue), Dick (Lori), Ed (Marianne), Rosemary (Don) Tarosky, Maggie (Michael) Reitenbauch, Bill (Pam), Bob (Becky). Between both families, she is survived by 54 nieces and nephews.
Per Becky and Gerry's wishes, cremation has taken place. Calling hours will be Tuesday, 2 to 6 p.m. at NEWCOMER FUNERAL HOME, 131 N. Canton Rd., with a service immediately following at 6 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family at any US Bank. A mass will be held at a later date at St. Paul Catholic Church on Brown St. Contact them for details 330- 724-1263. To leave a special message for the family online, visit
