Rebecca Ruth Soutter, a resident of New Braunfels, passed away at her home on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at the age of 79. Born on April 29, 1943 in Knoxville, TN, she was the daughter of the late Roy Garner Human and Inez Lorene McCoy Human. Rebecca is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Thomas Leslie Soutter; children, Mark William Soutter, Eric Garner Soutter, Leslie Ann Judkins, and Ryan Thomas Soutter; grandchildren, Ethan Archie Allman, Brennan Thomas Allman, Rozamund Elizabeth Soutter, Luke Garner Soutter, Lulan Elizabeth Soutter, Lillie Grace Soutter, Amelia Pearl Soutter, Avery Rebecca Soutter, and Opal Rose Soutter; sisters Sally Ann Bond and Elizabeth Joan Guthridge. Rebecca graduated from Milligan College in 1965 with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education followed by four years of teaching in Mullins, SC and Pittsburgh, PA. While teaching in Pittsburgh she met and married Thomas. They married at Highland Baptist Church in Knoxville TN on July 6, 1968. Thomas’ employment relocated the couple to Chicago IL; Groton MA; and subsequently to San Antonio, TX in 1980. They ultimately settled in their New Braunfels home in the summer of 2003. Rebecca’s greatest accomplishment was in creating and maintaining a loving and enduring family where her children were frequently coming home to spend time with her. She was strong in spirit and faith, spoke true with God, and emanated His word through action. Rebecca was impassioned and awed by the natural beauty of the world which she cultured through her oft complimented iris garden. You could be sure to find her outside maintaining her yard on beautiful days. Rebecca was a very active member of the Canyon Lake Alpha Tau Eta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. A memorial service will be held at the Lux Funeral Home Chapel on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 at 11:00 AM.

Memories Timeline


  1. Becky and I became friends through our young sons when we were neighbors.
    I loved seeing the faith that Becky had. She was hard working and optimistic and found “the positive” in all situations. She loved her family beyond measure, but most of all she loved God.

  2. I am so grateful she is not in pain now!
    I feel your loss with you. Tom thank you for taking such good care of her.
    I have so many sweet memories of Becky and then the many times spent with you all.
    I love you all and I know your mama was so proud of you all.
    My heart will be with you all on the 14th I’m just so sorry I can’t be there in person.
    I love you all, Aunt Joan

  3. Sent with love and remembrance to all the family but to my grandchildren Ethan and Brennan Allman, and mother Leslie and husband Cody … huggs!!

  4. Becky was the sweetest co-worker and I so looked forward to, and appreciated her daily smile and sense of humor. I pray for peace and comfort for the family members. How glorious to think of her at rest in Heaven! She was a treasure!
