Obituary – Reba Jo Hitchcock

August 19, 1935 – March 5, 2023

The Hitchcock family sadly wish to say that Reba Jo Hitchcock passed away on March 5th, 2023. Our beloved Mom and Grandma was born August 19, 1935. A computer programer at a time dominated by men. Dual citizen of the USA and Australia, calling home Texas, Arkansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Perth (Western Australia), and most recently Boise, Idaho. She loved the Lord Jesus, her family, and wood carving. Reba is survived by her son, Steven, her three brothers, Leonard, Dennis, and Lynn, and her five grandchildren, Suzannah, Netanya, Bronwyn, Brianna, and Schaefer. As a family we would like to express our sincere appreciation to the staff at Overland Court Senior Living, who provided loving care for the past twelve months and the staff at St. Luke’s Hospital who were such a blessing to her in her final days. Her funeral was at the Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise, Idaho, on March 11th.
