Tribute & Message From The Family

Rebecca Ann Ibarra, age 65, passed away on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, in San Antonio. Becky was born on June 25, 1953 to parents Frank and Ann Pantuso. Becky graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in San Antonio and attended Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos.

Becky assumed many roles and responsibilities throughout her life, as an airlines customer service representative, travel agent, florist, and varsity football team mom. Becky was an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend to many who were fortunate enough to have known her. Becky was a self-less, courageous person who relentlessly stood for what she believed in, while often putting the needs of others ahead of her own. Becky sought a special purpose in her life after overcoming stage IV colon cancer over a decade ago, and recently completing the Stephen Ministries training program to counsel others in dire emotional states.

Family was above all her most precious commodity, as she treasured spending time with her grandchildren who affectionately knew her as "Nonni". She also enjoyed living life to its fullest; whether it was taking on new hobbies like Zumba and kick boxing, or frequently venturing to her home away from home at the Texas coast with her husband. She was an invaluable treasure to this world and whose presence will be greatly missed.

Becky was preceded in death by her father, Frank L. Pantuso.

Becky is survived by her husband of 37 years, Eddie; mother- Ann Pantuso; siblings Paul (Kelli) and Terri; sons Zach (Monica) and Rhett (Rachel); stepdaughter Leslie (Andy); and grandchildren Jake, Luke, Henry, and Hudson. The family will receive friends beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at Porter Loring North.

SUNDAY, JUNE 9, 2019
6:00 P.M.

MONDAY, JUNE 10, 2019
2:00 P.M.

Father Daniel Villarreal and Deacon John Eichelberger will officiate.

Pallbearers will be Paul Pantuso, Mike Pantuso, Zach Ibarra, Rhett Ibarra, Andy Sowa, and Michael Herrera.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Stephen Ministries.

I had the pleasure of meeting and working close to Becky at USAA in the Member Buying Service. Becky worked in the Travel Agency and was always very polite and kind. She was a beautiful person inside and out. May she rest in peace and may God comfort her friends and family during this difficult time.

To my dear friend "Becky Lee" as I called you..You were a light in the dark for so many of us. Thank you for your love and friendship for all of these past over thirty years that I have known you. I can still hear your laugh and see your beautiful smile in my heart, and always will. No words can describe the loss that all of us who knew you are feeling right now. Our consolation is the fact that we will get to see you once again when we reach "The Other Side", and that we know whose arms are wrapped around you now.
