Beckie was the first resident whom I had the good fortune to meet, just by chance, prior to my deciding to move to Cresswind. I will always remember her warm, bubbly and enthusiastic way, and her kindness as she offered to take my daughter and me on a tour of the Clubhouse. I was very saddened to hear of her passing. My heartfelt sympathy to John and the entire family.

Jim and I extend our deepest sympathy to John and the rest of Beckie's family. Beckie had the most beautiful smile, and that was the first thing that struck me when I first met her. She had a look of joy in her eyes too. You could not help but feel happy in her presence. She will be very much missed by all of us that knew her.

I worked with Beckie several years at IRS. We got to travel some together. We visited the Grand Canyon in 2006 in route to a group meeting in Tuson. We also spent time in January with the old group for a retirement celebration down in Florida and I spent time back at she and John's beautiful house. We laughed and ate and talked about everybody we knew. I am so glad she is not suffering any more but I will miss her everyday till we meet again.

As a child Becky was always bubbly and energetic and always caring for others, putting others before herself, especially her younger siblings. Everybody always loved Becky. Her strong spirit and friendly smile were a comfort to those who knew her. Her beautiful children and grandchildren are a testament to the wonderful mom and grandmother she proved to be. RIP dear Becky. Your memory is a blessing.

I am so appreciative that I personally experienced and had a front row seat to Becky's kindness! ....and of course, there was Becky's warm, welcoming "glad to see you smile "!

I am a classmate of Becky's from the class of '68. When I think of Becky, her bubbly personality and smile was something she blessed her classmates with. I was so sad to hear the news of her passing. My heart goes out to all of Becky's family and friends at this time. May you find comfort, joy and hope having shared your lives with her.
