Rebecca frequently went on weekend dates with her husband to Latin-American and Iberian cultural celebrations, where they would dance the night away. On many occasion, she would gather with the other wives and watch with enthusiasm, as her husband and his friends would gather around the firepit and play folk music on their various musical instruments. After she retired from Iomega, she loved watching westerns, classic comedies, British serials on PBS, and cooking programs. She also enjoyed visiting with her friends at the senior citizen center, and helping family in the garden.
Our dearest Matriarch, Rebecca Escobedo Flores, you will be sorely missed. We love you so very much, and we know in our hearts that you have gone on to a superior existence among the angels, and God in Heaven, in the eternities. Amen
