Obituary

Rebecca Louise Alexander, 90, passed away on May 16, 2020, at Bayhealth Medical Center, in Dover, Delaware.

Rebecca was born in Camilla, Georgia, on September 14, 1929. The “Georgia Peach” was raised in Perry, Florida. She was preceded in death by her parents, William Edgar and Williamae Thompkins; husband, Joseph Daniel Alexander; daughter, Brenda Alexander and sister, Lillian Haynes. After a short battle with illness, she too, went home to be with the Lord.

Rebecca traveled with her husband as the family was stationed at Orlando Air Force Base in Florida, Bergsrom Air Force Base in Texas, McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey, and settling at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.

Rebecca loved to clean, strip, wax and buff floors at the bases and did so for 52 years. She was recognized by the Delaware State News, on three separate occasions, as a cleaning contractor and for being dedicated to her family, as a mother of 11 children, all while managing her cleaning responsibilities, fulltime!
Rebecca was raised in the church. She watched Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), four to six days each week. Her favorite songs were How Great Thou Art and Amazing Grace. Rebecca was saved and she loved serving the Lord.

Rebecca also loved gardening. She had so many vegetables and flowers that she would always share with others. Rebecca and Patricia would often have coffee days and ice cream nights at Dairy Queen. She looked forward to this almost every day.

Rebecca touched many hearts all over the world. She was a landlord and helped so many people. She was a strong black business woman, indeed, sharing wisdom with those she encountered. She was “very strong” as Shon, her youngest child, would always say. Rest in Heaven, our strong Black Queen, love always, your youngest daughter, Linda, along with Greg, Bridget, Tiffany and grands.

Rebecca was a gift from God, Himself. She was a beautiful mother and a grandmother, leaving seven sons and three daughters and their families: Joseph Alexander (Norma) and Donald Alexander (Bertha), all of Texas, Abdul Nasir Jerry Alexander (Lorraine) of Virginia, Patricia Alexander, Richard Alexander and Bernice Alexander (Elmer), all of Dover, DE, Michael Alexander (Nancy) of Pennsylvania, Linda Alexander Breneman (Greg) of Mississippi, David Alexander of Middletown, DE and Shon Alexander of Dover, DE; and a host of uncles, aunts, grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends to cherish her memories.
