Rebecca D. Roseberry, of Porterdale, died August 3, 2009, at Newton Medical Center, at the age of 56 after a courageous 16 year battle with diabetes and heart disease. She was born October 20, 1952 in Fulton County. Upon taking up residence in Porterdale, Rebecca became very involved in the community. She worked tirelessly in making improvements to the town and to the quality of life for its residents. She served on the Porterdale City Council for 4 years and was responsible for having Porterdale declared a Historical Mill Village, and subsequently was instrumental in bringing the Lofts, as well as other businesses into the community. She was also the driving force behind bringing the Boy Scouts back into Porterdale and was a leader for one of the most successful troops in the area and touched the lives of many of those scouts and their families. Rebecca also had a true love for animals and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and books. Her good works have surely paved her pathway to Heaven. We are all better people for having her in our lives.
