Rebecca Grayce (Henry) Leiby.

SIMSBURY, CT Rebecca Grayce (Henry) Leiby died peacefully February 3, 2010. Becky was born June 8, 1914, in Worcester, Massachusetts, to James and Margaret Titus Henry. She graduated from Vassar College with a degree in French and worked at radio station WTAG and Worcester Academy before her marriage to Kenneth Llewellyn Leiby. As an Army wife in Georgia, Virginia, and Munich, Germany, she was an energetic hostess who did not hesitate to become involved in her new communities and her children's schools and activities, to explore the cuisine and culture of her new environments, and to hone her needlepoint and dressmaking skills. After retiring to Simsbury, Connecticut, in 1962, she and her husband designed the floor plan for their home where she worked endless hours establishing flower beds, canning and freezing the harvests of their vegetable garden, and preparing bounteous meals for all who came to visit. She volunteered with the Simsbury Visiting Nurses Association and when she moved to Essex, Connecticut, in 1989, she scheduled the shelvers at the Essex Public Library and served on Council at Essex Meadows. Her family includes her son, Kenneth Llewllyn Leiby and his wife Linda Ucko of Short Hills, New Jersey, and children Kathryn Beck and Jake Kenneth Llewllyn; and her daughter Margaret Perkins and her husband Kenneth James of Columbia, South Carolina, and children Amanda Grayce and Margaret Elizabeth McClinton and her husband Coy. The family would like to thank her extended family at Essex Meadows who have supported her with laughter, good food, and patient, gentle care. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
