Becky was the wonderful "second mom" to all of her son Randy's many friends as we grew up together in Denison. She fed us around her kitchen table with good food, lessons in bridge and lessons in life we only later appreciated. She was a remarkably loving person with a great sense of humor who understood the importance of not taking yourself too seriously. She loved life and taught it well. We were extremely lucky to have had her in our lives...

I enjoyed working with you, Becky, at the Denison Texas Power & Light Company. You were a great fellow employee & helped me to adjust when I first went to work there. I enjoyed our many walks around the downtown area during our breaks.
