Rebecca Barker Lee

July 30, 1950 - April 15, 2014

Rebecca Barker Lee, 63, daughter of Leonard and Juanita Barker passed away calmly, relaxed and mindful of the blessings she has been given in her life on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. Rebecca had the best childhood ever with 10 siblings and wonderful parents, with never a dull moment. Forty-six years ago she married her high school sweetheart John R. Lee in the Salt Lake Temple. Their life has been blessed with a beautiful family; Christine (deceased) Ronnie & Janine Andersen, Aaron Lee (Jen), Brian Lee (Mandi), Jacob Lee (Jennifer), Emily Rogers (Mike), Lyndee Porter (Spencer), Elizabeth Johnson (Tim), John David and Nathan (also deceased). They were blessed with 29 grandchildren.
She has always been active and held many callings in the LDS church, which has blessed her life immensely. She currently resides in the North Ogden 17th ward. She was blessed with the gift of discernment to glean the truth from all sources, and the ability to teach that truth to others. She has always had an abiding faith in her Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ as there has never been darkness in her mind. She has had a well rounded life; physically, mentally, and spiritually. Her jovial spirit and a light heart has not only been a lifetime blessing to her but to those who know her.
She was loved by many, especially her children and grandchildren who adored her and will miss her greatly. She had a great love for the outdoors and enjoyed many hikes and camping trips with her family. She was a true example of a Christ like person and you never heard her speak an unkind word. Her posterity will strive to live by her example.

Enjoyed the services today. It was a shock to me to discover her passing. Many memories came to mind today. Becky and I going to kindergarten together. Her family going for a drive and ending up at our house in Idaho. Spending many night at her parents homes or my house. Her telling me about this wonderful guy she meet and how he treated her and how lucky she was to have him in her life. Our talking about how we where raised and being prepared for marriage. The day she told me she was expecting a baby while visiting her mom and I telling her I thought I was expecting also, then our children where born in Dec on the same day, but in different thowns and how surprised she was (then later watch them share a pacifier). Because of Becky and John's example my sister used it so she could get married in High School. Either Becky or John telling me their thought about a women working at Hill Air Force Base and I then used it against my father-in-law. I missed not being in touch with hers the past 10 to 15 years. She was one special friend!

We will miss Rebecca so much. She loves being in the mountains, and she always has such a positive attitude and such great faith that everything is in God's hands and it will all work out for the best. She is such a good influence on me and my daughters. It was an honor to know her.

It's still hard to believe one of my dearest friends is gone. She was such an example to me. In many ways, she changed my life. I will miss her greatly. My heartfelt prayers are with all of you and your family. May the Lord strengthen and comfort you.

My heartfelt prayers go out to Sis. Lee's family, especially to Bro. Lee. She was loved by so many, and I'm certain there are many other loved ones with her now.

I was so saddened to hear the news of Rebecca’s passing. I met her last year and was instantly captured by her love of life and her amazing smile & caring and LOVING attitude. She was so amazing I felt so comfortable with her right away; I spoke to her the entire night. She spoke of her family with such love & admiration; you saw her face light up when she spoke about her grandchildren. My heart goes out to her husband and children & grandchildren and friends & family for such a huge loss of an amazing genuine woman. My prayers and thoughts are with your family.
