Remembering Rebecca Lee Koborie - Sept 10

Today is September 10.

More about the life of Rebecca Lee Koborie...

  • Rebecca sang at the funeral of the mother of Monica Lazor

  • Rebecca inspired an actor she performed with at a converted steamboat called the Showboat Majestic. He was more committed to pursue acting because of her inspiration.

  • Rebecca was remembered in poetry by fellow performer Dave Cremonese:
    A soaring voice
    The sound of piano beneath
    I sat at that piano
    As I played, I watched
    And listened to you soar
    As you showered all below
    With the gift of a beautiful voice
    Your spirit, your love
    And every time I sit at the piano
    I feel a bit of that love
    That I felt so long ago
    It's been so long, yet
    I'll never forget you
    God Bless and Keep you
    And all that you left behind
    We miss you

  • Rebecca "calmed the rough waves" working at Citibank with Marilyn Monte of Orlando, FL.

  • Rebecca touched the life of Paulette Vandenbrande deeply.

  • Rebecca's life was remembered in the planting of a Blue Spruce by John Lehmus and
    Sue Wallingford of Kennebunk
