Obituary for Rebecca Kay Knapp

REBECCA KAY KNAPP of Eureka Springs, Arkansas was born on October 15, 1960 in Elkhorn, Wisconsin daughter of Edward Leroy Knapp and Gail Francis (Fish) Knapp. She departed this life on Sunday, December 30, 2018 in Eureka Springs, Arkansas at 58 years of age.

Rebecca’s love of people was evident in her career as a registered nurse for 35 years. She worked in many different states and was even a traveling nurse. She was always helping others before herself. Rebecca enjoyed her time spent with her Mary Kay business and the friends she made at her church. In her free time, she developed an appreciation for the outdoors and a love for kayaking. Around her home, she became an expert in attracting hummingbirds and developed a talent for making beautiful quilts.

She is survived by her son, William Stanley and wife, Kortney; parents, Ed and Gail Knapp; siblings, Renee (Dan) Liljegren, JoEtta (Carl) Simmerman and Edward (Rachel) Knapp; two beautiful granddaughters, Maggie Jane and Eila Lou; William’s father, David Stanley; dear friends, Steve McMorrow and Michael Harkness; several other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents, John and Katherine Knapp and Raymond and Marjorie Fish.
