Rebecca Marie Nylen
Rebecca Marie Nylen, age 49, a loving mother of 3, and adoring wife to husband, Robert Nylen, passed away in her home Tuesday, May 17, 2022. Rebecca was born January 18, 1973, in Baraboo, Wisconsin, to Roberta and Tom Barrix. Rebecca has two sisters, Jenny Dunham and Mandy Feick. Rebecca graduated from Baraboo High School in Wisconsin in 1991. After high school Rebecca completed cosmetology school in Madison, Wisconsin. She married Robert Nylen on September 24, 1994, which was her high school sweetheart. They relocated to Pennsylvania with the marriage and conceived their first child while in Pennsylvania. Prior to birth they relocated to Beaumont, Texas, and their first son, Brandon Nylen, was born in 1997. Brandon was followed by Colton and Dillon Nylen in 2000. Rebecca and Robert raised their family in Beaumont and all three sons enlisted in the military after high school.

She was nurturing, caring mother and will be greatly missed.
