Rebecca Krier passed away October 3, 2018 at home with hospice. She was cared for by her loving daughter Natasha Krier.

She was born to Donald Abshire and Virginia Abshire in Louisville, KY on July 21, 1952. She had two brothers and one sister. She grew up in a modest household where her parents worked hard to support and provide for their family. While growing up Becky was always positive and joyful and easily made friends. She enjoyed playing baseball and was a good pitcher. Even the boys wanted her on their team.

She found a love of music and taught herself how to play a tenor saxophone by listening to old records and imitating the sounds. She couldn’t play as fast as a professional however, she produced a beautiful tone quality and vibrato from her instrument. She played in the church band for over 30 years. She also had a beautiful voice and sang in church during worship services and with several vocal groups.

She grew up a member of Gospel Assembly church and remained faithful to God her entire life. She loved the church and all the people dearly. She was active during services giving inspirational testimonies and encouraging others.

She devoted her life to her daughter Natasha and worked to give her every opportunity and supported her in every way. She and Natasha overcame a lot of challenges in life but still had a happy home and a close relationship.

Becky fought a courageous battle with cancer for six and a half years. She passed away with her daughter by her side and her faith intact as a shining example of God’s love.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 p.m., Sunday, October 7, 2018, at Gospel Assembly, 7135 Meredith Drive. Visitation will be held at the church one hour prior to service time.
