Rebecca “Becky” Sadler Freeman Douglas of Gloucester, was called home on Friday, June 21, 2019, surrounded by her family.

Born in Alberta, Virginia and raised in Petersburg, Becky served as a Social Worker for the City of Hampton for 15 years. She was a beloved, longtime member of Newington Baptist Church and a grateful member of the Woman’s Missionary Union. Becky was loved by many in the Gloucester community for nearly 30 years.

She is survived by her loving husband, Alan Douglas; her sister, Amelia Millie Blackburn of Richmond; her eldest son, Tom Freeman of Jacksonville, Florida; her daughters, Debra Cutts and husband David of Yorktown, Deborah Belcher and husband Rodney of Middlesex; sons, Daryl Douglas and wife Gina of New Kent County, and Dennis Douglas of Toano; 16 grandchildren, and six great-grands (and one on the way).

Becky was a loving wife and mother and a woman of deep faith and dedication to her family. Becky, Mom, Grandma will be greatly missed and will live in our hearts forever.

A Celebration of Life for Becky was held at Newington Baptist Church, 6169 Main Street, Gloucester, on Tuesday, June 25 at 3 p.m.; the family received friends at 2 o’clock.
