Becky loved her family and friends. This was evident when you walked in her house and saw her walls adorned with pictures of all of her family. Becky loved her family unconditionally.

When she wasn’t basking in the sun, she could be found on her computer researching items for their next garage sale.

From the moment I met Becky, she was instant family. One of the most loving people I ever met; she took our two nieces and nephew into her arms and helped guide them through the loss of their mother. She and Don had not been married for long at that time and it truly amazed me that she just stepped in and treated those kids as if they were her own. I knew right then that she was a very special person filled with unconditional love. Becky, I am grateful and honored to have known you. You will be forever in my heart until we meet again. To Don and Family, I send my deepest condolences and much love.

I've known Becky for about 22 years. She knew and loved both of my children, Joey and Lisabeth.
We worked together for some time, along with my husband Bryan. She attended church with us a few times during her walmart days. She was like a second mom. She a always asked about the kids, she grieved with us the loss of our son, and provided encouragement. Love and miss you Becky.

I remember her coming to Hutchinson to visit her Aunt Berniece.
She would come to our house to visit my sister Dixie.
They let me hang out with them a little bit, even though I was just a little kid at the time. ...always so much fun when she was around. I loved her laugh. Always laughing & smiling. She loved life.
I remember she was terrified of toads, and would scream at the top of her lungs whenever she saw one.
I looked forward to her visits.
We lost contact over the years, but she found me on FB, and we were able to catch up on the lost years.
I’m still in shock that she is gone.
I’ll see you in Heaven one day Becky. Miss you....Love you❤️

I am so sorry to hear of Becky's passing. She was such a good person. I have known her since junior high and we became friends on Facebook a few years ago. My prayers go out to her husband Don and her family and her puppy. RIP Becky.

My heart was torn when I heard that my Big cousin had passed. She was my dads cousin. As big as our Hamlin family is, she is one who always kept in contact with me, checked up on me. She had the biggest heart and a smile that light up the room. She was an amazing woman and a blessing to everyone.

Please accept my deepest condolences. I have fond memories of Becky from bowling and as a next door neighbor. May the heartfelt memories you hold inside help ease the pain you are having with her passing.

Becky was person for all people. She was my sister and most of all my friend. We talked a lot on the phone making sure we were there for each other. She never gave up on herself or anyone else. I think that’s why I loved her so much. She had what it takes to be a friend to all.
