Rebecca, who was called Becky or Becky Knight, was raised in Newnan where she enjoyed warm summers, swimming in the pool or nearby lakes, horseback riding, tennis, summer camps and the joy of living in a relatively small idyllic community.

Following graduation from Newnan High School, she entered and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Converse College, in Spartanburg, S.C.
Becky worked in Atlanta, Ga. for several years until she moved to Washington, D.C. to join the staff of Congressman John “Jack” Flynt, Jr. of Griffin, who represented Georgia’s then 6th District in Congress. 

It was in Washington that she met Jon Flask, who would become her husband of 45 years.

She is survived by her husband and daughter, Ansley Flask French (Eric); and grandchildren,  Layla and Dylan. 

Following a memorial service at the First Union African Baptist Church on Daufuskie Island commencing at 11:30 a.m. on December 1, 2017, she will be interred in its cemetery.
