Rebecca Grace Childs, 23, died unexpectedly on April 27, 2010 following a courageous battle with an extremely long and difficult illness. Rebecca was born in Voorhees, NJ to Carol McCann Childs and the late Peter Phipps Childs, Sr.
Rebecca graduated from Haddonfield Memorial High School in 2005, and moved to Raleigh the following year. She continued her education, and in May of 2009 became a graduate of Wake Technical Community College. Rebecca loved learning, and would often be found reading a new favorite book or spending time in a library. Greater than her thirst for knowledge was the love and devotion that she had for her family and friends.
Rebecca is survived by her mother Carol McCann Childs of Raleigh, NC; sister Rachel Elizabeth Childs of Raleigh, NC; and brother Peter Phipps Childs Jr. of Raleigh, NC. She is predeceased by her father Peter Phipps Childs, Sr.
Funeral Services will be held at 1:30 PM on Saturday, May 1, 2010 from Millbrook United Methodist Church, 1712 E. Millbrook Rd., Raleigh, NC. The Rev. Greg Moore will officiate.
Family will receive friends 30 minutes prior to the service at Millbrook UMC.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Rebecca’s Name to the Collingswood Public Library, Attn. Children’s Section, 771 Haddon Ave., Collingswood, NJ 08108.
