Rebecca F.  Ernsbarger

(September 9, 1949 - February 5, 2013)

Rebecca Faye Ernsbarger was born September 9, 1949 to Joseph Lee and Bette Stricklin Mills at Alvin, Texas. She departed this life of 63 years, 4 months, and 26 days Tuesday, February 5, 2013 in Salina, Kansas after a courageous battle with cancer.

Rebecca grew up in Alvin, graduated from high school and attended college. She was an account executive for Southwestern Bell and after the 1989 divestiture; she became Director of TeleCommunications for Continental Airlines/EDS.

On April 29, 1977, she married Charles Ernsbarger at Houston, Texas. They eventually made their home in Glasco.

A brilliant, independent and strong willed person, Rebecca excelled in life. Her cancer was the impetus for her success in the business world, proving that illness would not stand in her way. She loved her work and when not at the desk, she could be found reading or working with computers. Rebecca was a diehard Texas Longhorns fan. She cherished her family and delighted in being with her grandchildren.

Rebecca was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and was active in the altar guild.

She was preceded in death by her mother, and one brother Joseph Lee Mills who died in infancy.
