Rebecca Castro

July 17, 1939 — July 2, 2024



In loving memory of Rebecca Castro, known affectionately as "Becky," who graced this world with her presence on July 17, 1939, in the Philippines, and gracefully departed on July 2, 2024. She left behind a legacy woven with kindness, warmth, and culinary delights that will forever linger in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her.  Rebecca dedicated over 25 years of her life as a secretary for Fremont, where she collaborated with numerous worker's compensation consultants. Her commitment to her work was matched only by her passion for decorating her home, especially during the festive Christmas season. The twinkle of lights and joy that emanated from her decorations mirrored the light she brought into the lives of many.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Rebecca's true essence shone through in her roles as a mother and friend. Her daughters, Maricel Coates and Irene Castro, together with son-in-law Neil Coates, hold dear memories of Rebecca's unwavering kindness and welcoming spirit. She was an exceptional cook whose pancit and leche flan were savored by family and friends alike.

Rebecca found solace in gardening, reading, and doting on her beloved Persian cat, Bugsy. Her passion for these simple joys illuminated the beauty she found in life's everyday moments. Additionally, she cherished her time as a Eucharistic Minister at Saint Apostle Church in Chino Hills, CA—a role that reflected her deep-rooted faith and commitment to serving others.

Tragically, after bravely battling dementia for three years, Rebecca peacefully slipped away in her sleep on July 2nd. As she departs this world to reunite with her beloved husband Lauro, in heavenly solace, we find comfort in knowing that she is embraced by eternal peace and love.

The lives touched by Rebecca Castro are forever enriched by her enduring love and generosity. As we gather to honor her memory at the Funeral Service held at St Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Ontario, CA on July 19th at 10:00 AM, let us celebrate a life lived fully—a life that continues to inspire us all.

May her soul rest in eternal peace.
