Rebecca P. Higdon Memorial Page
Rebecca Penick Higdon, 75 of Oceanside, California passed away Wednesday evening, January 3, 2018 at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California.
Rebecca was born on September 29, 1942 in Oshkosh, Nebraska to Fred and Vivian (Cochran) Penick of Lewellen. She attended Lewellen Rural High School and graduated from University of Nebraska, Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. She moved to California where she met her future husband Woodrow L. Higdon and they were married on December 26, 1967 in Huntington Beach, California. They made Southern California their home, happily living in Cypress, San Clemente and Oceanside during their 50 year marriage. Rebecca taught elementary children for over 40 years and was a dedicated and valued volunteer long after retirement.
Never idle, Rebecca could always be found in her garden or creating something unique—usually treasured gifts that she gave to family and friends. Homemade stuffed animals, baby blankets and play costumes were her specialties. She was very interested in photography, particularly photographing flowers, plants and outdoor vegetation which she practiced while traveling to national parks with her husband. She was deeply loved, will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
