Rebecca Mattoon


Rest in peace,

Rebecca left us on November 10, 2016. Her obituary (including the wacky photo that she chose) can be found by clicking here. Becky wrote the following before our 50th Reunion:

Although I'm not doing what I thought I would be doing at this point in my life, I have done the things that are most important to me. I have three "kids". My son lives in New Hampshire with his wife and, until recently, her daughter. Liz moved into her first apartment a few months ago and Ron and Michelle are experiencing "Empty Nest Syndrome" (and loving it). My older daughter is living in Naugatuck working as an advocate for brain injury survivors. Having had a near fatal car accident in her senior year of High School and surviving a traumatic brain injury herself, she knows first-hand how her clients feel and is doing an excellent job for them. My youngest (another daughter) is also living in NH with her husband. Before she moved from Terryville, she worked as a barber under the guidance of Dave Maslak. It was a job she misses to this day.

I was lucky enough to be able to do some traveling. I took a few cruises to Mexico and the Bahamas, flew out to San Diego for a music fest, but my favorite was getting down to New Orleans pre-Katrina. It was the best experience of my life and can't wait to go again.

Getting back to reality, I now work for a bank that I've been with for over twenty years. I've been lucky enough to get experience in the branch and in both Residential and Commercial Operations, which is what I'm doing now. Everyone around me is retiring but I think if I stopped working I'd end up being quite the couch potato so I'll continue working (and complaining about it).

I hope that everyone is having the life they want.
