Rebecca Liane Carrasco, age 43, of Clovis, NM gained her angel wings to enter Heaven on July 11, 2018 in Clovis. She was born on January 21, 1975 to the home of Bill and Sarah Lee Derrick in Boise City, OK.
Rebecca was a one of a kind woman who lived life with passion. She loved her family with a fierceness and was determined and self-driven in all areas of her life. She believed in Jesus Christ and found comfort in knowing God’s plan for her. Her spirit was like a fiery pistol and if you were lucky to know her, you would see how much she loved her family, children, and grandchild.
Preceding Rebecca in death are her: parents, Bill and Sarah Derrick; and grandparents, Frank and Ina V. Derrick-Delay. She leaves behind: her sons, Shane (Amanda) Mitchell, and Kevin (Tori) Mitchell; her daughter, Olivia Carrasco; brother, Bill Derrick, Jr.; sisters, Tonya (Jared) Vineyard, Sherry (Steve) Horn, Chellie (Steve) Gillespie, Connie Hartman, Cherry (Jerimiah) Garza and Crystal Guthrie; one granddaughter, Kalli Mitchell; and grandmother, Dorthy Lee. Rebecca will be dearly miss by all.
Visitation will be held at Steed Todd Funeral Home on Monday, July 16, 2018 from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Rebecca’s wishes were for no services to be held. Cremation will take place.
“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) The pain caused by the loss of someone we love is enduring, but God promises in his word the Bible that in the near future his kingdom will bring about lasting changes on the earth. A few of those changes are mentioned in the scripture above, death, outcry, and pain will be no more. Not only will God destroy death, he will remove the pain that it causes. “There is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:5) Those who have fallen asleep will be brought back to life, they will have the opportunity of living forever in paradise on earth, no one will ever get sick and die again. May this hope comfort you during this difficult time, I am so sorry for your loss.
Rebecca, I will always cherish the times and laughter we've shared and I will hold you close to my heart always!! I love you so much and miss you terribly. Rest in peace my dear sissy......

Rebecca, I met you in May of 2001 when we worked together for Alliance of which we became fast friends. What a strong passionate and beautiful woman you were! So full of life and zest that thinking of not being able to see and talk to you makes me so sad! I'm at a total lost of words which should make you laugh. Rest in peace my friend. I hope that you know just how very loved you are.
