Obituary for Rebecca Jean Stapler

July 4, 1930 - November 3, 2018

Rebecca Jean Whitaker Stapler, 88, of New Hope, passed away Saturday.

Rebecca “Becky” Jean retired in 1995 after 30 years of service as a state employee. She was a faithful member of Walnut Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church where she served her Lord and Savior in many ways. Some of these are: Elder, Pianist, Youth and Adult Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent and Pianist for Robert Donnell Presbytery. She also sang with her mother (Egzar Councel Woody Whitaker) as “The Whitaker Sisters” at camp meetings and gospel singings at every church and denomination for miles around. She also played piano for the Senior Center when they had sing-a-longs and would often beat her buddies in a mean game of dominoes. Jean taught piano lessons to many local students and was loved by her TOPs friends where she was very proud to maintain her 21 year KOPs status. Jean loved travel, line dancing and her best fur buddy, Rambo.

She was preceded in death by husband, Sam Stapler, father, Emmett Eugene Whitaker, mother, Egzar Councel Woody Whitaker, and brother, Jerome Lee Whitaker.

Survivors include sister-in-law, Vickie Whitaker, niece, Kelly Leigh Whitaker Davis (Tom), great nephew, Whitt Davis, great niece, Macey Davis, special daughter, Jan Stapler McAdams (David), daughter, Lana Stapler, son, Steve Stapler, special grandchildren, Jana Jackson (Eric) and Jamie Slie (Ben), and loving pet, Rambo.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to her angel care givers, Janice Maroney, Sue Joiner and Tonia West.

Visitation will be Wednesday 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at New Hope Funeral Home. Services will follow at 1:00 PM at New Hope Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Dr. Ed Herring and Rev. Bill McElyea officiating.

Interment will be in the Hayden Cemetery.
