Rebecca Ann Bennett Fountain passed peacefully at 7:45AM, January 11, 2022, in Vero Beach. This is after 7 days under hospice care, during which she was visited by a plethora of family and friends. The third daughter of George and Maude Bennett born in Erwin, NC, September 16, 1946. Her soul has ascended to unite with her Lord, family and guiding light, Mother Theresa, whom she met April 1996 in Calcutta during her thirty-year career as a flight attendant.
She graduated Cum Laude from FSU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in December of 2003. Thereafter, she continued her spiritual ascent, shepherding her flock at Christ by the Sea and CBS. She was a shining star inside and out, eloquent, elegant, competitive, witty, passionate, the consummate life partner.
She was a kind, loving, compassionate friend to everyone who met her. She radiated joy and love, and always put others’ needs before her own. She was a great listener. Her large circle of friends loved her deeply and will miss her everyday. This circle widened in 2020 when she joined Oak Harbor Golf. Her friendships there were truly precious. Rebecca’s faith was strong and unwavering. She was not afraid of leaving this earth because she knew she would go to Heaven. Indeed she was a true inspiration to all who met her. Rebecca will forever be in our hearts.
Survived by Bill, her husband of 33 years. Her last request for all to meet again beside our Lord. Any memorial contributions may be made to the Samaritan’s Purse in her honor. May she rest in peace. Friends and family are encouraged to leave fond memories of Rebecca, and condolences to her family at www.millenniumcremationservice.com.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
