Celebration of life services for Rebecca “Becca” Kathryn Mee, 31, of Pearl, were held at noon on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at Forest Hills Funeral Home in Palm City, Fla.

Visitation was held from 10 a.m., until the time of services at the funeral home.

She was born in Willingboro, N.J., on April 19, 1992. Formerly of Hamilton, N.J, and Stuart, Fla., she relocated to Pearl five years ago where she worked in her dream job as a Local Government Records Analyst with the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

She passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, April 28, 2023.

Becca was a committed Christian, who attended Crossgates Baptist Church in Brandon.

She found great hope and comfort in her faith in Jesus Christ and served in many children’s, women’s and young adult ministries throughout her life.

She graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelor’s degree in History and from Southern New Hampshire University with a master’s degree in History.

She was a voracious reader, aspiring writer, passionate historian, dedicated Bookstagrammer, caring cat mom to Hermione Jean, adoring aunt, thoughtful niece, protective cousin, faithful friend, doting granddaughter, devoted sister, loving daughter, a compassionate and kind-hearted young woman and a Jersey Girl at heart.

Becca will be forever loved and missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her parents, Christine and Sam Watson of Stuart, Fla., and William and David Bailey of Mount Holly, N.J.; her sister and brother-in-law, Chelsea and Brett Rocker of Port Charlotte, Fla.; her nephew, Stephen Rocker; her maternal grandparents, William and Joanne Case of Roxie; and her many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Becca’s memory be made in her name to the Sarcoma Alliance or Room to Read.
