Rebecca Louise Jones

With a mixture of sadness and Christian hope, we, the family of Rebecca Louise Jones, announce her passing on Thursday, August 29, 2019, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born March 19, 1973, in Stafford, England, Rebecca was the daughter of loving parents, Tony and Carol Knowles. Rebecca had a happy childhood, riding her bike, having fun with her sister, Emma and family holidays. With the support of her parents, she discovered a love for music and developed a significant musical ability in clarinet and singing.  

Rebecca gave her heart to the Lord at a young age and throughout her life was actively involved in children’s/youth ministry, outreach and hospitality, and worship leading.

She held several jobs in administration, but her real passion lay in education. She was employed at several schools in the UK, but most recently, as a schoolteacher at Munro Academy. She cared for each of her students, wanting to see them succeed and reach their full potential.

Besides her parents, Rebecca is survived by her husband of 26 years, Rob; children, Hannah-May, Sarah, Mary-Jayne, Joshua, Caleb and Joe Joe; grandson, Benjamin; and sister, Emma Ashford.

A funeral service will be held at Faith Baptist Church on Monday, September 2 at 11 a.m., with Mark Tobin and Stephen Fenton officiating. Interment in Forest Haven Memorial Gardens.

Memorials may be made to Praise FM Cape Breton, an initiative originally proposed by Rebecca.

Words of comfort can be sent to the family at www.sydneymemorialchapel.ca or e-mail sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca
