Rebecca Daniels


The Lord took our beloved shepherd, Rebecca Ann Daniels (Becky) home to walk with the angels on June 16, 2016.

Her life began on April 6th, 1952 in Lewistown, Mont., born to Thomas and Darlene Dudley of Grass Range, Mont. She graduated High School in 1970 from Columbus, Mont. As a single mother of three, she worked a full time job, attended college, and devoted herself to her children. She was lovingly known to many young people as their second mom. She was an angel to those who lost their way. Through all of her trials and tribulations, Becky never let herself be a victim of circumstance. Rather, she picked herself up by her bootstraps, grabbed the torch, and lit the way. The good Lord gave her a big dose of grit and perseverance.

Her lifelong passion to help others inspired her to become a teacher of special needs children, in which she flourished and changed the lives of countless children. She was a devout Christian and lived her life for Christ. She loved to spend time quietly studying the Bible and sipping coffee. She loved camping and fishing in the mountains with family, she loved to plant flowers, and above all, she loved watching her grandchildren grow.   Grammy loved eating ice cream and napping with the little ones.   She lived simply and loved unconditionally. She never took extravagant vacations or craved material things, rather Jesus Christ and her family were the center of her universe.

The world is a better place because of , Rebecca Ann Daniels. She will be profoundly missed by all.

She is survived by her son, Thad (Jen) Daniels, daughters, Sarah (Brent ) Berg and Katie Daniels, eight grandchildren (Kaeden, Avery, Taylor, Wyatt, Hattie, Lacy, Rebekkah and Rhyder) She is also survived by her sister Julie (Jeff Dinsdale) nieces, Shannon and Desiree.
