Becky is survived by her husband, William Howard “Bill” Plaxico and their three children, Kristi Plaxico Pittman, William “Will” Howard Plaxico, III, and Sallie Ann Plaxico. Affectionately known as G’ma, she was a wonderful, loving grandmother to Ronald Lee “Trip” Pittman, III, William Plaxico Pittman, and Andrew Brawner Pittman. Other surviving family members include her mother, Annice Braddock Brawner, brothers, Brad (Judy) Brawner, David (Geri) Brawner, and one sister, Louanne (Johnny) Butler.

Becky also leaves behind many other family and friends, all of whom she loved dearly.

Becky was born in Corinth on May 20, 1947. She graduated from Corinth High School where she met and married her high school sweetheart, Bill Plaxico. Bill and Becky married on February 15, 1964, and never will you find a more devoted couple to each other.Becky loved life. She loved people and she loved to talk. Many would tell you she loved to dance while others would say cooking was her favorite pastime. Her favorite outdoor hobbies included watching her grandsons play sports and working in her flower beds. Most important to her, were times spent and memories made with her family. She was truly devoted to her loved ones.

Thinking of all of Becky's family during this time of grief. Even though we lived miles apart and didn't get to visit except at class of 65 reunions, I have always counted Becky one of my dearest friends. Our fathers worked together at ACE for many years and our families were friends in all of our growing up years. Rest in peace sweet friend and prayers for Bill and family.

Bill, Kristi, Willie, Sally, and all Becky's family. I have lost so many loved ones, family and friends this year, and each time, I feel a part of me, of my heart, is gone with each one. God has welcomed you dear Becky, and I will see you again one day. And we will be all new, and free of sickness and pain. God be with each of you precious people as you say good bye to your Mother, wife, sister, daughter, and others, for only a while, as your love for Becky will stay in your heart always. And I too love Becky, and will miss her.
