Rebecca Ann Brown McNally

Jesus says…Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:18

Rebecca Ann Brown McNally, age 63, of Erwin, passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 and is now resting with Jesus, her personal Savior, after years of battling pain and illness.

A native of Erwin, Becky is the daughter of the late Pat E. and Ellen Moss Phetteplace Brown.  She was a member of Canah Chapel Freewill Baptist Church.  Becky was born on March 5, 1956 and graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1978.

When she was well, Becky enjoyed doing for others; she built a website for Matthew’s House, an orphanage in Romania.  She loved her animals, enjoyed baking and working in her beautiful flowers.

Most of all, Becky loved her family with her whole heart.  Her greatest joy was spending time with and talking about her fun, loving granddaughters, as well as her special nieces and nephews.  She enjoyed hearing all about their lives, hopes and dreams and in turn, liked to offer a little advice from time to time.
