Becky was an unselfish caregiver, a loving wife and mother, and a devoted friend with a beautiful and ever present smile that will always be remembered. She loved her music, talking with friends and family, and all things furry. Her life long unfaltering and abiding faith was never more evident than in these last few months.
She never questioned why she was given this journey to travel but accepted it as God’s will for her. We were all blessed to have her in our lives, and now heaven is brighter because of her.
