Rebecca Henry (Springer) was born December 21, 1955, in Prairie City, Oregon, to Theron Eugene Springer and Dorothy Mae (Davis) Springer. Rebecca worked for her brother, Steve Springer, who owned and operated Sho-Gun Video as the manager. She worked there from the day it opened until the day the business closed its doors.
Rebecca Marie loved fishing, mushrooming, and arts and crafts. She also loved making food and treats for her family and friends. Watching everyone eat Rebecca’s famous fried chicken brought a smile to her face and everyone else’s. However, her greatest most significant accomplishments in life are her family. She had a great love for each individual in her family and was always looking out for everyone she knew and held dear to her heart. Rebecca was well known for her feistiness and great sense of humor; everyone who loved her loved her personality.
