Rebecca Lettica Heil passed away on 19th April 2020, aged 33, whilst at home with her fiancée Lauren on the Isle of Sheppey due to complications from her Sarcoma Cancer which she was diagnosed with at the beginning of this year.

   

Rebecca was born on 11th December 1986 in Lewisham Hospital and raised in Beckenham, Kent before moving to Penge with her former partner Neil and eventually to the Isle of Sheppey. 

Rebecca was a kind caring person who was loved by all. A lifelong Crystal Palace fan she went to every home game with her father Alan, even after moving to the Isle of Sheppey. She loved playing sports, belonging to a number of football and hockey clubs over the years. She also loved going to boyband concerts, of which she went to many, namely TakeThat, Boyzone and Westlife. 

Rebecca recently proposed to her partner Lauren and was planning a wedding and their future together.

 

Rebecca is survived by; her parents Pamela and Alan Heil, younger sisters Caroline and Alison, five aunties, her grandmother Pauline Jones and many cousins, as well as her partner Lauren and Laurens three children Finlay, Dylan and Amber.
