In Memoriam: Rebacca Austin

We deeply regret to inform you of the death of

Rebacca Austin.


A former employee of the German School Washington DC, she passed away on February 14, 2014 at age 56.

Throughout her six years of driving one of our school buses (2006-2012), we got to know and respect her as a fun-loving and reliable coworker. Her friendly demeanor was admired by students, parents and coworkers.

We will cherish our good memories of her.
