RICHFIELD SPRINGS - Rebecca Jean Treen, 41, passed away peacefully following a courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 27, 2018, in her home. She had the comfort and support of her loving family at her side.
Rebecca was born on June 18, 1976, in Herkimer, daughter of Paul V. and Janet M. Harrington Domion.
A lifelong Richfield Springs resident, Becky was a graduate of Richfield Springs High School with the class of 1994. In her junior year of high school and at 15 years of age, she was selected as a rotary exchange student, spending one year living in Mexico, staying with a Mexican family and going to school there.
She furthered her education at Herkimer County Community College, graduating in 1996, attaining an associate's degree in accounting.
It was that year she went to work as a temp for the Bank of America in Utica, and in 1997 began working full time in various departments of the bank, with the last one being in the Legal Order Processing Department before leaving in 2014 due to her illness.
Rebecca had a strong belief in God and was a devoted member of Saint Joseph the Worker RC Church in Richfield Springs.
To all who knew her, they will never forget a caring, loving and energetic young lady who put all her energy into her work, her kids and their school activities.
She was a member of the MOMMS Club in West Winfield, served as an assistant Girl Scout Leader, was active with the Zone and sold Tupperware in her spare time. Becky was so very proud of her two cherished daughters and supported them at their sporting activities. You would be sure to find her at their cheerleading events, volleyball and softball games.
