Rebecca was born on December 14, 1953 in Washington, D.C., the youngest of two daughters to Paul & Dolores Wood.

An avid animal lover, she spent countless hours caring for fur babies as a vet tech assistant at the Loudoun Veterinary Clinic. Prior to that, Rebecca owned and operated her own cleaning company, Personal Touch, and raised her beautiful llamas, goats & turkey at Silo View Farm. She had a smile that would light up a room, numerous devoted friends and a family who loved her dearly. She cared deeply for her dogs; Spuddy & Chloe, as well as her cat, Sushi, and numerous other farm critters.
Rebecca was a member of Bluemont United Methodist Church and a longtime resident of the Round Hill community. She was strong-willed, a fighter and never gave up hope for a cure to the disease that ailed her.
