Becky was my neighbor at Lake Oconee for many years. We quickly became friends and shared so many things together, we had some wonderful girl trips, shopping trips. our husbands also became good friends and were fishing buddies. We were family. Becky was so giving of her time and so talented. I have beautiful quilts that she made for me and Jack. I will always have a hole in my heart for her but knowing that she is with our Heavenly Father has given me peace .

I could go on for hours about her and the wonderful person she was but faith, family, friends...these three little words pretty much sum up her life. She loved God and it showed in everything she did, She loved her family deeply. As an aunt, she was the best! “The Spoiler” A trait passed down from the greatest spoiler of them all, my grandfather. Lastly, she loved people. As a friend, she gave her best and her all to everyone. She will be deeply missed!
I ❤️ you Aunt Becky! Cindy

So many lives were changed January 10 when Becky passed away. Becky was my hero. She could do anything and she did everything well. But her best gift was a servant’s Heart. She was always looking for ways to do for others. She made everyone feel special. I will miss her so much. But I have wonderful memories. She is walking with Jesus, it can’t get any better than that.

Becky was a very godly woman and had the gift of hospitality. We shared a common love for quilting and I knew I could always come to her for questions or ideas. She was also very generous with her time and her fabric. On more than one occasion she gave me fabric that she didn't think she would use and in the end passed on to me the majority of her remaining fabric. But more than that I cherished her friendship and the ease at which I could talk to her. She was a great Christian mentor. I will miss her greatly.

Becky was a special lady. She was a neighbor, a friend and a mentor to me. That beautiful smile was always on her face when she looked at you. Besides the smile you also could not miss the kindness in her eyes and the feeling that she truly cared about you, because she did. She was one-of-a-kind and we will all miss her dearly.

To my sister Becky,
I was not ready to say goodbye to you. You are one of very few with whom I have shared my entire life....the ultimate “big sister”.
As a child you watched over me and as an adult sibling, you were always there for me. Your home was always had an open door for family and friends....you planned so many family celebrations, vacations and special times. Your kindness and love can never be replaced but the memories we shared will remain in my heart and mind as long as I live. I love you so very much!

Tom and Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your Dear Wife and Mother/Geandmother, Becky. I am Thelma Copeland's niece/guardian and Becky still continued to check in on our "Sissy" even when her illness began. Tricia, please check your FB inbox messages for a message that I sent you on Friday. I'm saddened that Becky didn't get the picture and message, but I know that Sissy and all of you now have a Guardian Angel watching over you daily. I will keep all of you in my prayers during this difficult time.

My Favorite Memories are:
FIRST Too many to many to mention
But can be summarized by saying That She always put Others ahead Of Herself
SECOND. She would still laugh about today is That even though three years
Older, as adults, She would introduce Me as her OLDER brother?
Love You forever Sis❤️❤️❤️
