Rebecca Sealey Obituary

Rebecca (Cox) Sealey, a lifelong resident of South Bend, IN, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2024, at the age of 44, leaving behind a legacy woven with love, kindness, and a zest for life. Born on June 1, 1979, to the late David McGowen and Dorothy Brown, Rebecca was a ray of light to all who knew her.

Embracing her role as a devoted homemaker, Rebecca poured her heart into nurturing her cherished family. She will be forever loved and deeply missed by her daughters Caitlin Gould of South Bend, Chaylee Ostrander of Osceola, and Alyxandra Ostrander of Goshen; her dearly departed son, Zachary Cox; and her beloved grandchildren, Charlotte Gould, Landyn Brant, Tommy Gould, Dilan Wagner, and Cristian Baez. Her brother, Charles (Cassie) Lewis of Niles, will carry her spirit forward in loving memory.

Rebecca's educational journey culminated with earning her G.E.D., a testament to her determination and strength of character. Beyond her home, she found joy and friendship within South Bend’s vibrant community, often immersed in the music and energy of local drag shows or relishing the beauty of the East Race and the St. Joseph River.

A woman marked by her loving kindness, Rebecca's absence will be palpable, but her indomitable spirit will continue to inspire all who had the privilege of knowing her.
