Rebecca "Becky" Jo Amaral
Rebecca “Becky” Jo Amaral, age 61, gained her wings the morning of October 10, 2020, after battling pancreatic cancer.
Rebecca was born in Jacksonville, NC on April 16, 1959. She graduated from White Oak High School and was proud to be a lifelong Viking! Becky worked as a childcare provider through MCCS for 27 years and 7 months. She just retired in September, 2020.
Becky loved people! She had an infectious smile, and made friends with anyone she came in contact with. It didn’t matter how, or if you were related, you were loved like a daughter, son, sister, or brother. She adored her babies from work, and boasted about her precious grandchildren. She loved shopping, playing cards, comedies, and spending time with her family and friends.
Services have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Rebecca is survived by her husband of 37 years, Joel; daughter, Jessica; daughter, Sharon and her husband, Jon; grandsons, Jerimiah and Jayden; granddaughters, Heidi, Mackinah and Brynleigh; a niece, who was more like a daughter, Misty, her husband, Tim along with their children Chloe and Ethan; brother, Ivey Murphy; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Rebecca was preceded in death by her parents Garland “MAC” & Mary Murphy and her son, Joseph.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the family or The Rebecca Amaral Memorial Fund through Navy Federal.
