Rebecca Christine Waller, of Harris, MN, was born January 4, 1997 and passed into the presence of her Savior on October 2, 2019. Survived by parents, Brian & Sue Waller; siblings, Adam (Valerie), Derrick (Jennifer), Rachelle (Joseph), David (Priscilla), Sarah, Samuel, Lydia, and Matthew. She also is survived by many nieces and nephews that she adored: Abigail, Timothy, Joanna, and Ruth Waller; Adalynn, Calia, and Olivia Waller; Serena Grace, Nehemiah, Hannah, and Josiah Afarian; Paul, Davia, Phillip, and Destiny Waller. She is preceded in death by her brother Isaac, her paternal grandparents, Wallace Waller; Adeline Waller and maternal grandparents, M. Donald Blom; Patricia M. Blom. 

Rebecca went home to heaven, October 2, 2019 at around 8:30am. The twenty-two years of life that God gave us with her seem so short, but in light of eternity, all of our lives are short. The most important thing is a relationship with Jesus Christ and that is what Rebecca evidenced by the fruit of her life. She is in heaven today, not because she was a good person, but because she trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. The instant her car was struck, she passed from earth to heaven and is in the presence of the Lord. 

Rebecca’s life was a testimony of love and service. She served in various ministry capacities in Mongolia, South Korea, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Minnesota, and throughout the United States. Rebecca desired to serve the Lord wherever He called her. Whether it was working in children’s ministries, serving as an administrative assistant, or coordinating conferences, she was faithful, gifted, and always gave her best to the task at hand. Most recently Rebecca worked as a life guard and at a UPS airport hub as a package handler, while pursuing her nursing degree. She was well loved, and loved well.

Rebecca loved adventure and physical challenge. This summer she joined her siblings in building a home for her parents to be able to offer hospitality. She and the team were diligent in their pursuit of excellence and enjoyed many long days working together since early April. Rebecca’s sudden departure from this earth gave us a more precious appreciation for the brevity of life. This has highlighted the value of each of the gifts and skills God has placed within each one, and the opportunities we have to accomplish mighty exploits. This sudden conclusion of a life causes our family to take on a new form once again. We are grateful for the twenty-two years and nine months the Lord saw fit to grant our family the experience of knowing and loving Rebecca. The world is a better place for her having been part of all of our lives. Her presence will be greatly missed.

  1. I know I personally don’t know your whole family. But I know it is very tough to lose someone. My heart goes out to all of you. She was so young. Hugs and prayers to you all.

    1. Dear Waller Family,

      I grieve with you at the sudden passing of Rebecca. It is so hard to say goodbye when tragedies happen. My heart aches for you. Praise God that in spite of the mourning for the separation in this life, we have faith in the life to come in Jesus Christ. This is our comfort; that she is beyond all suffering and sorrow in the presence of her Lord and Savior. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear this, David. Rebecca was so full of vibrance, kindness, and life. She was such fun to be around, no matter what you might be doing with her. She, and all your family for that matter, always had a smile for those around her. I’ll be praying for you and your family during this season of mourning. <3

  3. Rebecca was a beautiful and caring young lady. She will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace Rebecca. God Bless the Waller family.

  10. My prayers are with your whole family as you once again suffer loss. May the Lord provide His ever abundant comfort to you!

  11. Thank you for sharing these photos from Rebecca’s life. She would have been a fantasic nurse, it is hard to accept. Anyone who knew her will miss her. She was faithful everyday and now is home with our Father in Heaven, and someday we will join her there!

  12. No man who seeketh after things of this life, is a soldier who passes the test, Be faithful, Be working, Be loving, Be serving, Be searching His Word for His best, May the Lord find us faithful, May His Word be our banner held high, May the Lord find us faithful, Everyday though we live, though we die.

  13. Our deepest sympathy and prayers for Rebecca’s family and especially for our dear friends, her Aunt Vicki and Pete Gallus. May she rest in peace.

  14. My heart breaks for your entire family as you grieve Rebecca’s loss. She and Isaac are now united in Heaven but the loss here on earth is felt deeply. I’m thankful I had the life changing opportunity to spend time with the Waller family in Mongolia several years ago. I believe that no experience is ever wasted. God makes all things beautiful in His time. Beauty from ashes. Beauty from death. Beauty from pain. May Jesus comfort you as only He can and reveal His glorious and gracious beauty to you through this deep wound.

    All our love and prayers.
    Erin Key

  15. David and Priscilla, so very sorry for your loss. Prayers going out to you and the entire Waller family at this time. May the Lord’s presence comfort, strengthen, and keep you as you grieve the loss of Rebecca. We are so blessed because we have hope! 1Thess 4:13.

  16. David,I first got to know you and your wife, Priscilla, in June while watching a “Youth for Christ Conference” video which I downloaded from You tube. And oh! … I was really blessed by the way the Lord used you, Priscilla, Jim Bob and his wife Mitchell to teach the youths during the conference.I learn a lot!

    I was heartbroken when I lean about the death of your sister Rebecca. My prayer is that the Lord heal the heart of everyone member of your family (including everyone who is connected to her) in this difficult time and fill the gap created her dismiss created, in Jesus name. AMEN!

    May her gentle soul rest in peace.

    ALICHE, NWAEZE ALLWELL

You’re all in our hearts and tear-filled prayers, especially tonight. “Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever, Amen. Heb. 13:20,21 Lots of love. See you tomorrow, God willing.

  18. Rae Jean and I share our sincerest sympathy with all the family. I have tried for several days to get flights to be there for the funeral and just have not been able to do so. Rebecca was a very special young lady who was always kind and helpful to all those she so graciously served. May the grace of God comfort all the family.
    Sincerely in Christ,
