So sorry to hear of Becky’s passing. I have fond memories of seeing her in J.J. Newberry’s all those years. I worked at the Farmer’s Co-op in the early 60’s & knew Tucker & Becky then. Got reacquainted with her later on at the Salem Fire Dept. picking parties. She was a sweet little lady & always had a smile & a hug . Our thoughts & prayers are with the family. May your memories of your loved one last forever. Mary & Richard Early
