Rebecca Riggle

August 27, 1963 ~ November 5, 2018 (age 55)


Rebecca E Riggle, 55, entered into the presence of her Savior Monday morning after a well-fought battle with cancer. 

Born Aug 27th, 1963 in Callicoon NY, she was a 1985 graduate of Clark’s Summit University in education. She fell in love with Jim Riggle and they were married July 26, 1986. Rebecca taught 2nd grade for five years before becoming a full-time homemaker and pastor’s wife.

She is survived by her husband Jim Riggle, Wilmington OH, and three children, Jordan Riggle and his wife Katrina in Dayton OH, Carissa Payeur and her husband Adam in Dallas TX, and Andrew Riggle at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, and three beautiful grandchildren Aislynn, Elijah, and Rory Riggle.

Rebecca is also survived by her parents Thomas and Dolores Manley in Youngsville NC, and four sisters; Debbie Johnston and her husband Jack in Riverside CA, Sue Bellinger, and Christy Kelley and her husband Mike, and Julia Seigwart and her husband Jake, all of Youngsville NC.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, Rebecca’s confidence was rooted in the Scriptures where a love for God, family, and the local church were nurtured. She was a member of Faith Baptist Church in Wilmington Oh. Her gentle and gracious spirit combined with her perseverance, wisdom, and love will be missed until our heavenly reunion.

Saturday, November 10th, a memorial service celebrating the richness of God’s goodness and Rebecca’s life will be held from 3:00- 4:00 at Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, OH. Friends are welcome to visit and encourage the family from 1:00-2:30. Aaron Cook, a dear friend, will be officiating the service.

The Riggle family is asking that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Hospice of Dayton, whose medical staff demonstrated patience, kindness, and grace to Rebecca and family.
