Rebecca Viands Obituary

Rebecca Jane “Becky” Viands, 90, of Luray, passed away on Saturday, May 2, 2020, at Skyview Springs Nursing and Rehab.

She was born on Aug. 21, 1929, in Luray and was a daughter of the late Walter L. Viands and Elsie C. Mauck Viands.

Becky had resided in Washington, D.C. for 20 years with family, serving as a nanny to James C. Viands, nephew, and Lois G. Fraley, niece. Upon returning to Luray, she worked for Page County Public Schools, retiring after 24 years. She was a member of the Palisades Community Church in Washington, D.C., and attended the Page United Methodist Church.

Becky is survived by two sisters, Norma Jean Huffman and husband Joe, and Shirley Comer, all of Luray; and a brother, Lewis L. Viands and wife Maxine of Clifton. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews.  

A niece, Anita Keyser, was one of her devoted caregivers. A devoted friend, Lisa Synder, was special to her. Becky loved them; they were both special people in her life. She had other special nieces and nephews, including Bonnie and Kenny Judd. 

She was preceded in death by three brothers, Calvin C., Walter Leroy and James M. Viands; and three sisters, Lucy A. Keyser, Alice P. Housden and Nina L. Saylor.

We are a close family and will miss Becky immensely. She was very much loved.

A private graveside service was conducted on Wednesday, May 6, at the Beahm’s Chapel Cemetery in Luray by the Rev. Laura Stratton.
