Rebecca Cody Isaac died during the early morning on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at her home in Mocksville.

She was born in Mocksville to the late Booker T. Cody and Florence VanEaton Cody on April 11, 1925. She was educated in Davie County school system. Early in life she went to Washington, DC to work to help her mother after the loss of her dad. While in Washington she met the love of her life, Green Isaac Jr. They were united in marriage and had 6 children. Mrs. Isaac worked from home, washing and ironing so she could be home with her children. She loved washing and ironing which she was still doing a month before she passed. When the youngest child finished high school, Mrs. Isaac went to work for Baker Furniture where she retired after 25 years. Mrs. Isaac was known for her cooking, especially her cakes. No one ever went hungry around her house and Mr. Isaac never ate sandwiches; he always ate a full course hot meal. She was a die-hard Atlanta Braves fan, and in 2019 she attended a Braves game where they played the Dodgers (Mr. Isaac’s favorite team). Mrs. Isaac was also a devoted member of Greater Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church where she served as a trustee and was the Church Mother.

She was preceded in death by: 6 brothers, Booker, Tom, Bill, Ivy, Robert and Mike; 3 sisters: Lula, Helen and Jenny; and 2 children, Frances and Lewis.
