Rebecca (Becky) Lynn Ellison of Waco, Christian Women’s Job Corps/Christian Men’s Job Corps consultant for Woman’s Missionary Union of Texas, died May 16. She was 58. She was born Oct. 28, 1961, in Houston to John T. and Marie Massey. After graduating from Marlin High School, she went to Baylor University, where she earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work. At Baylor, she also met her future husband, Michael Ellison. She began working with CWJC, a job-training and life-skills ministry of WMU, in 2004. Six years ago—four years after she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer with no approved treatment—she became full-time strategist and consultant for CWJC and CMJC with Texas WMU. In that role, she worked with more than 50 ministry sites around the state. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, David Massey. She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Michael; daughter Chelsie Massey and her husband Robert; grandson Robert Massey III; and sister Karen Gonzalez. A memorial service is scheduled at 11 a.m. on June 20 at First Woodway Baptist Church in Waco.
