Rebecca Ann Zuraff was born October 19, 1950 in Detroit, Michigan to Louis Felix Espinosa and Florinda Reyes Espinosa. She passed away on December 22, 2021 at the age of 71.
Her parents moved back home to San Antonio, Texas when she was two months old and was raised with a younger sister. As a child growing up, she enjoyed family trips to Mexico, General Conferences, and other places. She graduated from Fox Tech High School in 1969. While at Fox Tech, she received training that enabled her to immediately gain employment with the Department of Defense, first at Kelly AFB. Sh later moved to the Air Force Annex at Fort Sam Houston, and from there to Lackland AFB. She began her career as a stenographer, and then as a buyer. After 17 years of work, she left her career in June 1986 to be a stay-at-home mom.
In June 1965, at the age of 14, Rebecca accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior while at a summer youth camp at Lake Texoma, Oklahoma. She lived the rest of her life focused on the Lord and living for Him. The scriptures she found the most encouragement in were found in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” She was a member of the Church of God (Seventh Day) until she passed away. She played the piano at church services, led congregational, and sang specials with her sister early on in San Antonio. Other congregations of Church of God 7th Day she attended with her husband were Westside in Oklahoma City and Shawnee, Oklahoma.
In August 1979, while attending the General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh Day) in Glorieta, New Mexico, she met the man who would later become her husband. On April 18, 1982 she married Steven Michael Zuraff in San Antonio, Texas. The first 18 years of marriage they resided in San Antonio where she gave birth to three sons, David, Jonathon, and Aaron. She and family moved to Oklahoma in June 1999 where she lived with her family until her death. April 18, 2022 would be 40 years of marriage. She was devoted to her family and dearly loved her husband, kids, and grandchildren, and lovingly worked tirelessly for them. She set a godly example for them, and studied her Bible daily, and prayed for her family and others. She loved to cook and bake in the kitchen. Her cooking and baking was considered legendary by many, especially her apple pie, and cinnamon nut coffee cake. She was the best of home makers worthy of being called a virtuous wife and mother as written of in Proverbs 31:10-31. She always greeted everyone with a smile and encouraging words.

Zuraff of Oklahoma City, her three sons and three daughters-in-law David and Vanessa (Anklam) Zuraff of Oklahoma City, OK Jonathon and Lea (Garza) Zuraff of Cabot, AR and Aaron and Laura (Rice) Zuraff of Shawnee, OK.
