My name is Rebekah Irene (Buss) Evilsizor. My parents are Charles and Alice (Baker) Buss. I was born December 31, 1948 in Dover, Ohio and passed peacefully into the presence of the Lord Tuesday, May 21, 2019.

I graduated from Dover High School in 1967. I received a B.S. degree in Christian Education from Nyack College in New York. On June 22, 1974, I married James Evilsizor in Dover, Ohio.

I served with my husband, Jim, in pastoral ministry for 41 years in five churches in the Western Pennsylvania District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance: McPherron, Donegal, Castlewood, Osceola Mills, and Tionesta. I taught Sunday School, served in the nursery, directed children's church, and performed secretarial duties. In the Western Pennsylvania District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, I served as Area Great Commission Women president in two different regions and as retreat secretary. My husband and I retired in November of 2016 and moved to Clearfield, Pennsylvania.

I am survived by my husband Jim; my sons: Timothy of West Decatur, PA, Joseph (Amy) Evilsizor of Clearfield, PA, and Stephen (Ashley) of Harrisburg, PA. I have three precious grandchildren: Ethan and Eila Evilsizor of Clearfield; and Everly Evilsizor of Harrisburg. Also surviving are my brother, Daniel (Sandy) Buss of Dover, OH; sisters, Mary (Dick) Marshall of Sugarcreek, OH, and Martha Buss of Bradenton, FL; nephew, Brad (Victoria) Buss of Dover, OH; nieces, Cindy (Rob) Pickleshimer of Wooster, OH, and Susie (Marlin) Schlabach of Sugarcreek, OH. I was proceeded in death by my parents.

The most important thing to me is that I am a born again Christian, having received Jesus as my Savior and Lord at Beulah Beach Camp at age 12. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and He has been with me all my life, even in my battle with cancer.

I want to thank all of the wonderful doctors at nurses at Magee Women's Hospital in Pittsburgh, the Penn Highlands Home Health and Hospice team in Clearfield, and my family and friends for all their care, love, prayers and encouragement they have given to me.

A funeral service will be held Saturday May 25 at the Clearfield Alliance Church with the Rev. Dr. Duane White officiating.

Friends will be received Friday May 24 from 4-7 PM at Beardsley Funeral Home and Crematory, Clearfield, and on Saturday from 10-11 AM at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Beulah Beach Camp, 6101 W. Lake Rd., Vermillion, OH 44089, or Mahaffey Camp, PO Box 277 Mahaffey Grampian Hwy, Mahaffey, PA 15757 designated for "Scholarship Fund".

We would like to extend our deepest felt sympathy to the Evilsizor family at this time of loss. Becky was a sweet lady with a quiet and graceful presence that will always be remembered. She taught us as young adults in Sunday School at Castlewood Alliance Church. She was always the model of a devoted woman of God, Christian wife, and loving mother. Her husband, Pastor Jim Evlisizor, performed our wedding ceremony almost 25 years ago. Jim and Becky visited us in our home when we were just a young married couple not long before they moved away from New Castle. They gave us a beautiful double woven blanket that said, "God Bless Our Home" as a wedding gift, which we still have to this day. We will always cherish our memories of Becky and her ministry at Castlewood, as well as remembering the input she had in such a precious time of our lives. She was a wonderful person and will always be thought of fondly.
With love and prayers for comfort and peace,
Erik and Helen Ferringer - Wampum, PA

Becky was my awesome college roommate at Nyack. She has been a dear friend to me for the past 52 years. My last conversation with Becky held
a solid assurance that she would pass from this life and live in eternity with Christ. She has run the race and now rejoices in her heavenly home.
My husband, Larry, and I pray the good Lord’s care of love and peace be with Jim and family.
