Obituary for Rebecca A. St. John

Webster: Tuesday, November 14th, 2023 after a 9 year battle with cancer at the age of 61. Predeceased by her daughter, Jessica Brent; parents, Howard and Susanna Peer; brother, Howard Peer. Survived by her loving husband of 30 years, Lloyd "Buck" St. John; sons, Justin St. John, Jessie (Jill) St. John and Jordan (Kristen) St. John; daughter, Jenna (Jeff) Downs; grandchildren; sisters, Susanna (Michael) Duch and Sharon (James) Jones; nieces, nephews and many dear close friends.

Rebecca was born in Sodus, NY on Oct 25, 1962 to Howard and Susanna (Nevelizer) Peer. She attended Sodus Central Schools and graduated from Sodus Center Christian School in 1981. Most recently, she was employed by the Webster Central School District as a school bus driver from 2000-2018. She had a love of flowers and gardening, and enjoyed every aspect of nature, whether on land or the water. Her love of antiquing was reflected in her home decor, including her doll collection and beautiful dishes. But her greatest love was that for all her children and family members. This was reflected in her love of baking and cooking, especially around the holidays.

Rebecca was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend. She lived her life in a way that reflected her strong faith in Christ by always showing kindness and forgiveness. A special thanks to loving niece, Sarah (Matthew) Zimmerman and sister, Susanna for all the wonderful care she received from them.

Friends are welcome Friday, November 17th from 10am-12:30pm at the Profetta Funeral Chapel 1650 Empire Blvd. where a Funeral Service will be held at 12:30pm. Interment will follow at Webster Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please have memorials made to the Shepherd Home in her memory.
