Rebecca Pierce Caruso, age 67, of Dallas, GA, passed away at home Saturday, February 13th, surrounded by her family. She was born December 9, 1953 in Tifton, GA, to her late parents William Anderson Pierce, Sr. and Syble Belflower Pierce.
Rebecca was a Histotechnologist who worked for many years for the Wellstar Health System, and later for Roche Diagnostics. She had a passion for excellence in tissue diagnostics and went on to receive among the highest honors at Roche. As accomplished as Rebecca was in her profession, the roles in which she shined the brightest were that of mother and grandmother. She was incredibly proud of her son Stephen Harris, a Paulding county firefighter. The twinkles in her eyes were her two grandchildren, Michael and Olivia Harris. From late night baseball games and track to softball and cheer, “Grandma” was always the loving glue of the family that kept it all together. She was a rare, beautiful soul who will be greatly and forever missed.
Rebecca is survived by her loving husband Greg Caruso of Dallas, GA, son James Stephen Harris of Dallas, GA, brother William Anderson Pierce, Jr. of Tifton, GA and grandchildren Michael and Olivia Harris of Dallas, GA.
A memorial service will be held for Rebecca on Saturday, March 13th at 5:00pm at Clark Funeral Home in Hiram. Mike Woods, Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church of Powder Springs, will be officiating.
