On March 9, 1998, Rebecca Ann Bullough Horne passed away after exhausting every available avenue of survival.
From the moment of her birth in the family sedan on August 20, 1952, Rebecca was a non-conformist. Her unique approach to life is reflected in her writing, art, music and many other accomplishments.After graduating from Skyline High School in 1970, she pursued a medical career, completing a nursing degree in Weber State College in 1975. She went on to practice Critical Care Nursing in New York City and later in Salt Lake City at Holy Cross Hospital. Rebecca worked also as a nurse in the Laser Lab of the University of Utah Medical Center. Her curiosity, ambition and intelligence prompted her to seek a bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Utah, completed in 1988. She was a member of the National Honor Society in Psychology.
Rebecca married Arthur Hughes Horne on St. Patrick's Day, 1974 in St. Mark's Cathedral, Salt Lake City, Utah. Together they had two children, Antonia (19) and Logan Andrew (7). She called them her "greatest joy," and leaving them, her "greatest sorrow."
Rebecca enjoyed an extraordinarily creative life, which included designing personalized jewelry, playing the flute, and writing poetry and novels. Her most recent public accomplishment was the completion with her sister and best friend, Patricia, of the monumental tile painting in the courtyard of Olympus High School.
Rebecca is loved and will be sorely missed. She had an enormous strength and energy that left all those who knew her truly blessed.
Survived by husband and children; parents, Robert Vern and Dolores Clarke Bullough; siblings, Patricia, Robert V., Jr. (Dawn Ann), Richard C. (Kirsten); grandmother, Antonia C. Draper; mother-in-law, Sara Horne; sisters-in-law, Ruth E., Margaret, Madaline (and spouses); numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Thank you to all the wonderful, caring people who have given Rebecca and her family their love and support throughout this lengthy ordeal.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 16 at 11 a.m. at Evans and Early Mortuary, 574 East 100 So., Salt Lake City, UT.
