Rebecca Lynn MacDonald

Rebecca “Becky” Lynn MacDonald, 60 of Frederic, passed away on Thursday, May 30, 2024 at her home surrounded by family.

Born on May 17, 1964 in Port Huron, MI to William and Meredith (Rutkofske) Brown,  she graduated from Davison High School in 1982. A year later, she married her lifelong-love Robert “Bob” MacDonald on May 27, 1983.

She held various positions outside of the home, which included supporting military families through an in-home daycare for many years. Her most coveted role was being a mother to her three children. As a military spouse, she called many places home, ultimately settling in her cozy, wooded cabin in Frederic, MI in 2015.

Becky enjoyed staying active and supported cancer research and military relief efforts through participating in 5k events. She cherished spending time with her grandchildren, crocheting, and being outdoors, amongst nature. She would often share beautiful photos taken on her long walks with her family and friends.

She is survived by Bob, her husband of 41 years; her three children, Breanne MacDonald (Alex Sanchez), William (Jessica-Raye) MacDonald, and Jessica (Ryan Daly) Haight; her eight grandchildren, Parker, Ashlyn, Paityn, Kaidyn, Kynnslee, Charlee-Ann, Oaklynn, and Jaxon; her father William Brown; brothers Thomas (Karla) Brown and Scott (Debbie) Brown. She is preceded in death by her mother.
