Rebecca Gayle Igo

TERRE HAUTE — Rebecca Gayle Igo, 58, of Terre Haute, passed away at 11:50 p.m. April 25, 2013, in her home, where her sister and her two dogs were caring for her during a long illness. She was born Sept. 12, 1954, in New Castle, in Henry County, the daughter of Margaret Ellen (Irvin) and Oscar Allen Igo. Becky graduated from Blue River Valley High School in Mount Summit, and from Indiana State University in 1977.

She worked as journalist in New Castle, Brownsburg, Greencastle and Terre Haute.  Sisters of Providence, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods employed her as marketing coordinator and marketing director, from August 2006 to the present time..

She was a member of the Indiana Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and received ICSPJ awards annually from 2002-2005. She received a Hoosier State Press Association award in 2004 and two awards from Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. in 2002.  

She was a member and former president of the Terre Haute Newspaper Guild and was involved in contract negotiations for local Guild members. A loyal advocate for workers, she was dedicated to the principle of fair and professional treatment of all workers. Her union work led to many late nights and early mornings beyond her regular workdays.  

Becky participated in committee work, wrote for “Hope” magazine and the Sisters of Providence website, interviewed sisters about their work and lives, and photographed events and people.

She enjoyed all kinds of music, sports, reading, movies, and time with her family of humans, dogs and friends. She frequently rescued animals — turtles, dogs, cats, birds. She loved gardening and shared her mother’s passion for irises, magnolia trees, peony bushes, and annual plantings of geraniums and petunias.

She is survived by her older sister, Diana Igo of Bloomington; and several aunts uncles and cousins.

A service is scheduled for 2 p.m. today in the St. Joseph Chapel, in Owen Hall, on the Sisters of Providence campus, with coordination and leadership assistance by Sister Ann Casper and Father Daniel Hopcus. A wake, scheduled for 1 to 2 p.m. today precedes the 2 p.m. service in St. Joseph Chapel. On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, graveside services will be conducted at 1 p.m. at Mount Summit Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations in Becky’s memory, may be made to Sisters of Providence or the Vigo County Public Library. Greiner Funeral Home, 2005 N. 13th St. assisted with arrangements.
