Life Happens Here!

Rebecca Netterville

Becky NettervilleBorn April 14, 1951 to Johnnie Brown and Arthur Reid Netterville, Jr., I am a life long resident of McComb, and the youngest of 5 children—three brothers (two deceased) and one sister. Raised by a single parent (my father died when I was 17 months old), I attended McComb Schools and graduated from McComb High in 1970. I began my career as a part-time legal secretary in June, 1969. Having been awarded a scholarship from McComb Schools, I continued my part-time job and attended Southwest Jr. College as a full time student and graduated in 1972. In 1974, I continued in my career path as a medical secretary for almost 10 years, then as a secretary for two different school systems here in McComb, until coming to work here on December 18, 2001. All my former bosses are members of Centenary!! I love interior decorating, small doses of gardening, and I am an avid reader. I am an animal lover and the owner of two precious dogs (Katie Scarlet and Sadie Louella). I am a life-long member of the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where Donald Dick has been our pastor for 30 years! I am devoted to my church, and family, especially my sister who suffered a stroke in 1996.
My position here at Centenary is far more than just secretary. It is indeed a ministry of its own where I spend a good deal of my time helping transients and local residents, not only by giving them MICA vouchers, but assisting them by finding area organizations to pay lights, gas, and water bills, provide temporary housing. Many times I help the ones who are poor readers, or can’t read at all, to complete paperwork. My position here is a “lifeline” to many older CUMC members who love to call and “see what’s going on". 
I love my job here at CUMC and thank God daily that I am able to be in His house 6 out of 7 days each week! If something should ever happen to my church—guess where you’ll find me attending? After all, my mother was born and raised Methodist—and the apple didn’t fall far from the tree! Thank you for allowing me to be here!
