BRYSON, Rebecca R., 90, passed away September 30, 2018 in Tampa, her home for the last 51 yrs. She was born in Rocky Face, GA on Valentine's Day to Frankie and William G. Daffron, the only daughter of four children. After graduating from high school and Business School, she worked for Cabin Crafts before marrying and traveling the U.S. and overseas in the military with her husband, raising four daughters along the way. She was devoted to her family, loved unconditionally, had the patience of a saint and a heart of gold. She was truly a cherished gift from God and now forever an angel in heaven. Our tears won't stop until we meet again.
