Marietta Times

Rebecca Bridgeman-Ferhat, 47, of the Republic of Kazakhstan died Monday (May 3, 2004) following an automobile accident in the Republic of Kazakhstan. She was a 1975 graduate of Frontier High School.

A former Peace Corps volunteer, her long-time dream of returning to overseas service was recently fulfilled by her work as a foreign ser vice officer for the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Rebecca, the daughter of Bruce and Martha Bridgeman of Marblehead, Ohio, began her love of international work when she traveled to Colombia as an exchange student. After graduating from Ohio University with honors in 1979, she joined the Peace Corps in Mauritania, West Africa, where she established a recuperation center for malnourished children.

After her Peace Corps service, Rebecca settled in Los Angeles, where she earned MBA and MPH degrees from UCLA and met her husband, Abderrahman Ferhat. She worked several years for a major health care provider, raised two daughters, and devoted time to her church.

Rebecca was noted by all who knew her for her energy, her charitable works, and her sense of humor. “Rebecca became a vital force to everyone who came in contact with her,” said Robert Smith, a close friend.

An enthusiastic world traveler, Rebecca’s most recent trip, completed only weeks before her death, was a trek across the Sinai with her husband. She described this experience, nearly alone in the desert atop Mount Moses, as filling her with a sense of “incredible peace.”

She was confirmed at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Marietta in 1971.

Rebecca is survived by her loving family: her husband; two daughters Hadiyah and Sakinah; her parents, and three brothers, Daniel and Thomas, both of Toledo, and Paul of Scottsdale, Ariz.
