When Rebecca turned 25, she moved to her own “apartment” as she called it, which was a room at Brown Street Group Home. She loved living there and made many friends. She was proud of inviting her friends to her parent home for BBQ’s, holiday parties, fish fry’s and her birthday parties. She also enjoyed the get-togethers with her cousins. She loved them all and in return they all loved her.
In 1991, Rebecca got a job at Ewing Vocational Center. She loved getting her own paychecks. She was an avid animal lover and volunteered at the Sedalia Animal Shelter. She loved books and music, especially John Bon Jovi.
