Rebecca Jean Kanger, 56, formerly of Palo Alto, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, September 23, at Pruitt Health Center—Crestwood, Valdosta GA.
Born August 21, 1965, she was the daughter of Katherine (Wertz) Kline and Lawayne Kline.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents Joseph and Katharine Wertz. After graduating from Pottsville Area High School Class of 1983, she enrolled in the former Franklin Academy and successfully earned her CNA certification.
Becky enjoyed the simple things in life. She loved to sing and her favorite pastime was gardening. She had a green thumb, as they say. She was also a member of the Compassion Christian Church. She took pride in helping others and was often described as being a very kind and thoughtful woman.
She was a loving mother and grandmother and selflessly always put her family first. She will be deeply missed by her son, daughter, and grandbabies, with whom she wanted to spend all of her free time.
In addition to her mother, Rebecca is survived by a son Bryan Kanger, Springfield, GA; a daughter Colette Ostrander, San Diego, CA; grandbabies Brielle and Austin Ostrander and Liam Kanger; brothers Eric Kline and Lawayne Kline.
