Obituary of Rebecca Lynn Hobbs Yahn

Rebecca Lynn Hobbs Yahn, 46, of Rincon, GA died Saturday, June 6, 2020 at Hospice Savannah. She was born April 23, 1974 to Sharon and Bill Hobbs at Harrisburg Medical Center in Harrisburg, IL.
Becky is survived by her husband Brett Yahn; her daughters, Stephanie and Mary Beth Haney; her parents, Sharon and Bill Hobbs; her brother, John (Angie) Hobbs; her nephew, Luke Hobbs; her aunt, Debbie Towns; uncle, Steve Wallace of Golconda, IL; two great-aunts, Erma Bellitto of Godfrey, IL and Dortha Milligan of Brighton, IL; and many cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Elizabeth and Tom Hobbs, and Vivian and Lenard Wallace; and aunt, Margret Ann Hobbs.
Becky was an R.N. She loved being a nurse. She worked at Coastal South Carolina Hospital with a wonderful group of nurses. Becky was a beautiful person inside and out. She always had a smile on her face.
Life is a mingling of comfort and sorrow. A shadow that passes when evening is done. A clock in the night that is quickly forgotten. An uneven journey, a race that is won.

Families First Funeral Care and Cremation Services is in charge of arrangements.

    I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Yahn’s passing. I wish there was more that I could have done to assist with her medical care. I was only able to meet her in person one time, but in that one meeting I could feel her sweet spirit. She spoke of her love of nursing and she had such a positive attitude. God bless the entire family. I am keeping all of you in my prayers.

    It was an honor, privilege and a true blessing to have worked with Becca. There are not enough words to describe her profound character and loving spirit. Becca was a true advocate for her patients in the Emergency Department. She always stood up for what was right. It was an honor to call her my friend.
