Rebecca Schneckenburger (Allison), 74, passed away Monday, December 2nd after a brief illness.
A life-long resident of Akron and Cuyahoga Falls, she graduated from Kenmore High School in 1963. She worked as a secretary in the advertising department at Firestone until 1974 after which she devoted her life to taking care of her children and came to be known and loved by all the kids in the neighborhood. A dedicated fan of her favorite soap operas, she liked to spend mornings at the kitchen table sipping coffee, browsing the newspaper and visiting with friends and neighbors that would pop in. In later years she enjoyed exploring and learning family history, and reminiscing about her time at Firestone and the excitement of Akron in its prime.
