Rebecca Maley passed away on July 4, 2020 at the age of 45 at her family’s ranch, Rocky Hill Ranch, in Smithville, Texas. She was born on May 8, 1975 in Houston, Texas to father Karl Archer Maley and mother Pamela Jo Dotts.

She went on to obtain her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin and her Teaching certificate from Texas A&M Corpus Christi. One of Rebecca’s greatest loves was travel. She lived in Costa Rica where she taught English as a second language, and spent time in England, Montana and Florida before moving back home to Texas where she spent most of her years either in Rockport or Smithville.
