Rebecca Nannie Sechler, 94, passed away Friday evening, February 8, 2019, at Best of Care Assisted Living, following a period of declining health.

Born May 16, 1924, she was a daughter of the late Robert W. Nannie and Martha Susan Saunders Nannie.

Also, her best lifelong friend, Elizabeth Walters, preceded her in death.

Rebecca had worked for Draymore of Mooresville, later retiring from Plej’s of Salisbury. A loyal lifelong member of Oak Grove United Methodist Church, she was active in many aspects of the church. A talented sewer and terrific cook, Mrs. Sechler was well known for her chicken noodles and her pumpkin pie. A loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, she had a wonderful gift of making others feel special. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Loving family members include her children, Steve Sechler (Jane), of Nashville, TN, and Susan Burr (Charlie), of China Grove; her grandchildren, Stephanie Reilly, Steve Sechler Soto (Bianca), Julie King (Eric), Andrew Burr (Tracy), 10 great-grandchildren; her siblings, Nora Kneip, Joseph Nannie (Sandy), Andrew Nannie (Harriet), Lois Miller, and Julia Thompson; her sister-in-law, Mabel Sechler Osborne, and numerous special nieces and nephews. She was the unofficial mom, mawmaw and Aunt Becky, to many other friends and loved ones.

The family will receive friends from 6:00-8:00 PM Tuesday, February 12th at Whitley’s Funeral Home. Funeral services to remember and celebrate the life of Mrs. Sechler will begin at 2:00 PM Wednesday at Oak Grove United Methodist Church, conducted by the Rev. Mike Edwards. Mrs. Sechler will lie in state 30 minutes prior to the service. She will be laid to rest beside her husband in the church cemetery.

The family would like to thank the staff of Best of Care for the care, concern and love given to Mrs. Sechler and her family.

"Aunt Becky was truly a wonderful loving person to all. She will be missed and emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. So glad I will get to see her again in Heaven. I know the Angels are rejoicing another saint has went home and surly there is a Hallelujah Reunion with the Nannie clan in Heaven. Thank you Aunt Becky for showing and giving so much love me...❤️💔❤️"
