Becky was a woman of faith. She loved to visit and feed you something durning a visit. She loved her gardens and was always willing to show them off. We will surely miss her, but will remember the good times we shared together.
RIP Becky.

So very sorry to hear about Aunt Becky\'s passing. I have so many fond memories of her and family gatherings and reunions. I remember when we would come up to their house as a kid and how the trains felt like they would come through the house at any minute! Oh and how I loved her homemade rolls. Nobody could bake rolls like Aunt Becky! We will surely miss her even though we did not get to see her very often living so far away. I am sharing a picture of Aunt Becky and my mother (Marcella Stephenson). Two of the women who made a strong impact in my life for sure. So very sorry for your loss.
