Becky will always be remembered as the person that brought light into a dim room, she always seem to brighten up everyone with her smiling face and joyous love for life. Becky became very close to Mom at the last and Mom would always mention her in speaking. Becky will be missed and our love and prayers go out to her family and friends in PA.
Becky has gone to join her Heavenly Father and will be missed by all her family and friends.

Please accept my condolences on your loss. I met Becky when I had her Mom as a teacher in third grade at South Pymatuning Elementary. I did not know her well but enjoyed her mother's stories about her as told through that year. Her Mom was my favorite teacher and it is because of her that I became a teacher. I taught Special Education for 32 years. I always wanted to tell her how she had affected my life. So pleased to see Becky became a teacher too. It sounds like she was a wonderful person who helped others. Take comfort in your memories. I will never forget her Mother.

Dear Wendy,

You and your family have my deepest sympathy regarding the loss of your mother.
Becky was in my husband Rick's graduating class at Reynolds, and, Wendy, I've known you since you were in junior high school.
May your good memories help comfort you.

I was so sorry to hear of Becky's passing. She was a wonderful person. I always enjoyed talking about animals with her and was so grateful for the adoption from her of my dear kitten, Bella (formerly Dora). Becky is in my prayers.
