Rebecca "Becky" L. McCutcheon, 63, of Tallmadge went home to be with the Lord on January 3, 2019.
Becky graduated from Cuyahoga Falls High School in 1973. Over the years, Becky worked at a variety of different places: Clicks Stores, True Photo Shop, Chrysler Auto, and Boston Distributors in Cleveland, Ohio. She worked as a phlebotomist at Summit Adult Medicine Center in Fairlawn for nine years.
While working as a phlebotomist, she attended TRI-C, and also took course work at Akron University for a Physician's Assistant, graduating in 2004 with her associates degree. Becky went on to attend University of Phoenix, where she graduated with a master's degree in 2015 as a Physician's Assistant. Becky continued to work at Summit Adult Medicine Center full time during all of her education until her illness demanded that she take disability and retire in 2018.
Becky was an animal lover and she enjoyed music of all sorts. She was a gregarious person who was non-judgmental and very generous. Above anything else in life, Becky loved her family deeply, and held her friends close to her heart. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Becky was preceded in death by her father, William F. Carroll Jr.; paternal grandparents, Dorothy and Bill Carroll Sr.; and maternal grandparents, Stella and Frank White.
She will be deeply missed by her mother, Ruth Carroll; children, Shawn (Kristy) McCutcheon, and Shannon McCutcheon; sisters, Evelyn (Jim) Fiorello, and Catherine (Robert) Perry; grandchildren, Madison, Cameron, and Kaiya; and many friends, colleagues, and dear pets that she's owned over the years.
Visitation will take place at Lakemore United Methodist 1536 Flickinger Rd, Akron, OH 44312 on Saturday January 12, 2019 from 11am until 1pm. A funeral service will take place at 1pm officiated by Pastor Jeff Gindlesberger.
Memorial contributions can be made in Becky's honor to Stewart's Caring Place at www.stewartscaringplace.org, or to any local non-kill shelter of your choice.
Becky's last request for her friends and family was for them to smile through their tears.
