Becca was born July 1, 1996 in Brainerd, MN to Robert Schlegel and Jennifer Dambowy. The day she was born was great joy in the family since she was the first Schlegel granddaughter. Pooh Bear as her grandpa Dombovy referred to her as grew up in the Pierz and Brainerd area. She attended school in Pierz, MN and graduated from Pierz High School with the Class of 2015. Rebecca was a hardworking young woman often working three jobs. She most recently worked as a manager of the Blue Goose Liquor Store in Garrison and as a Dairy Technician for Schlegel Farms. She was quick witted and was often pulling a joke or two on those she loved. Her real love was for that of her four year old daughter, Lexi who Becca adored and loved with all of her heart. Becca treasured time spent with boyfriend Logan, family and friends, camping, fishing, hunting, doing crafts and laughing. She did not care for Horseradish! Becca was active with co-ed softball leagues throughout her life playing in various leagues.
