Rebecca Marie Alford (Sam), 39, was born at WW Hastings Indian Hospital in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, on November 23, 1980, to Tommy Joe Sam, and Grace. She was the second of five siblings, Jessica Monk, Bobby Sam, Sondra Sam, and Martin Sam. Rebecca lived in Muskogee and attended Oktaha High School.
She was a devoted mother to Keirstin, Patricia, Elisabeth, Natalie, Raeann, Ava, and Christopher. She loved to spend time with her two granddaughters, Aubrey and Adeline.
She is most known for her smile, laugh, and mischievous pranks. She had a big heart and never hesitated to help anyone she could, especially those less fortunate than her. During Thanksgiving she made thirty turkey sandwiches and handed them out at the library. She enjoyed family gatherings and spending time at the lake even just to dip her feet in the water. She is missed by her grandparents, Maria and John Iliff, many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
Rebecca was preceded in death by great grandfather Meliton Quiroz, great grandmother Maria Eva Barreru, great grandmother Violet May Skiens (Papaw), great grandfather, Tommy Joe Sam, grandfather Bobby Joe Sam, grandmother Patricia Ann Sam, uncle Mitcheal M. Gonzales, uncle Gilbert Gonzales, uncle John E. Sam, uncle Eulis McElmurry, aunt Teresa Nunez, and cousin Samuel Torres.
