Rebecca Lynne Egel, 65, of Des Moines, IA passed away Monday, February 13, 2017. She was born in Algona, IA on November 15, 1951 to Ernest and Vivian Egel. She is survived by her three siblings Gwen, Phil, and Robert.

Upon her graduation from Algona High School in 1970, Rebecca spent time amongst family, traveling, and honing her career dreams. She later pursued a nursing degree in Iowa where she then dedicated 20 years serving as a compassionate and nurturing medical professional. Rebecca's career in nursing led to the meeting of her husband with whom she created her biggest joys- son Justin Detrick Payne and daughter Deanna Marie Payne.

Rebecca, more lovingly known as Becky, enjoyed storytelling, crafting creative works of art, reading, and cooking. Her wealth of knowledge and immense heart truly made her a pleasure to be around.

Becky was a determined, caring, and beautiful woman. Love and light emanated from her countless selfless acts as a wonderful mother and friend.

Those fortunate enough to have known Becky continue to be inspired by her tenacity and strength.

Her welcoming warm embrace shall be forever missed...
