SWORD, Rebecca Mary (nee McFarlane)
August 21, 1938 – March 4, 2020
Quietly and gently while listening to her favorite song and holding her son’s hand, Rebecca passed at the Algoma Manor in her 82nd year. Predeceased by her best friend and husband of 52 years Allan Sword (2013). Loving mother of Duncan (Pam), Ken (Rene Cappelli) and Carita (Adrian Epp). Wise and treasured Grandma of Alicia, Andrew, Devin, Frankie, Matthew and Maresa. Fondly remembered by her family and friends from the West Coast as well as the Haileybury and Larder Lake areas.
Rebecca took great pride in her contributions to education. She was a music lover, story teller, musician and comedian. She enjoyed reading and the outdoors. Rebecca lived a rich and full life. She was an inspiration to all who knew her.
The family wishes to thank the residents and staff at the Algoma Manor for their compassion and support.
Celebration of life will be announced and held at a later date. Private burial in the spring.

My sister and I had 14 first cousins on the Heard side, and Becky was undoubtedly a favourite. I am sorry to hear that her life is over and I offer my condolences. Becky was smart, musical, caring and full of fun, and I know she will be missed.
When she and Al got married there was a big party at the little house in Larder lake. Even though she was the star of the day, she still made time to talk to us kids. After they were married I hitch-hiked to visit twice. First they were living near highway 101 just east of Timmins, probably near Bob's Lake. Al and I went on a short 24 hour fishing outing to Kenogamissi and I was so tired I can't recall much of the visit. Next time I thumbed my way to Cochrane and took the Polar bear train as far as Fraserdale, an all-Hydro town at the Abitibi Canyon. That time Becky and I went fishing and we caught small pike that she made into a delicious soup.
After that I went to university, first in Waterloo then the west, and I didn't see much of Becky and Al for the last 50 or so years. We did stop in Iron Bridge once on a drive from Saskatoon to Ontario, when my own kids were small. It was a hot day so she made sure they had a fun, cooling swim.
Becky was an excellent person and I hope she fully enjoyed her life.

I loved Becky so much and will treasure all the good times we had together. A visit from Becky and Al was always a day full of laughs, interesting stories and anecdotes and reliving of many memories. Becky was an amazing person with such a strong will and spirit. That spirit will live on in the lives of those she has left behind. Please know that I am thinking of you at this very sad time.
