Obituary for Rebecca Wiggins Quackenbush

Rebecca Wiggins Quackenbush
Rebecca (Becky) Wiggins Quackenbush, 65, passed away peacefully at her home in Bishop on April 21, 2017 after an extended illness.
A native of Atlanta, Becky was the daughter of Jane Nash Wiggins & Taylor Wilson Wiggins.
She was a graduate of Georgia State University.
Becky is survived by her husband of 27 years, John V. Quackenbush & their son 1st Lt Taylor Cade Quackenbush & daughter-in-law Kathryn (Katie) Anne Quackenbush of San Diego, CA and an older brother Clyde Albert (Al) Wiggins of Rabun Gap, GA.
Becky enjoyed careers in politics & law, working for Zell Miller when he was Lt. Governor & Georgia Congressman Elliot Levitas in Washington, DC in the mid 1970’s. She campaigned for Jimmy Carter in 1976. As a paralegal, Becky worked for a Teamster attorney Bob Mitchell in Atlanta in the early 1970’s. In the late 1970’s she worked for an anti-trust Law Firm headed by Lee A. Freeman in Chicago in the late 1970’s. She then moved to South Florida, and continued her law career working for various insurance defense firms. She also orchestrated a volunteer-driven after school program for less fortunate children in the West Palm Beach area.
Married in 1990, John & Becky moved to Georgia, settling in Oconee County. Throughout Taylor’s school years, Becky was an active volunteer at the Athens Academy, Colham Ferry Elementary & Oconee Middle School Media Centers. She loved celebrating holidays, helping faculty & staff with school parties. At Oconee County High School Becky continued her volunteering in the school attendance and front offices & was active with The FFA Chapter. She took an active interest in the wellbeing of students of all ages, known affectionately by Taylor’s classmates as ‘Mama Quack’.
A Celebration of Becky’s Life will be held at a later date following son Taylor’s return from an upcoming deployment.
In memory of Becky, the family asks that any financial contributions/donations should be sent to: Oconee County Schools P. O. Box 146 34 School St. Watkinsville, GA 30677-0146 -- Check Memo: Memory of RWQ - Dove Creek Elementary School Library. These donations will fund new books for Dove Creek Elementary School, due to open in the Fall of 2018, helping to alleviate the need to collect donated books from other schools; a cause Becky would be proud to support.
