Becky’s kindness and sweet smile helped to make the holidays an enjoyable occasion. We had much laughter and good times at Mike and Candice’s home during special occasions. Becky gave cancer a good fight. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family. Sincerely, Terry and Jackie Hubbard (Mike and Candice’s mom and stepdad).

Becky worked on the road selling T-Shirts with me for many years. She became like a daughter and family to me. She had such a big heart and she always lifted my spirits when I had some tough times. I could always depend on Becky. She was a very special person in my life. She will never be forgotten. Wicked Wanda

I met Becky through working for my Uncle Chris on the road in The Ice Cream Factory. We worked long hard hours together, hundreds maybe thousands. When you work with someone for that long you get to know them pretty well. I learned she was an amazing Mom, a kind and fun loving wife, a forever friend and later in life a perfect Grandmother. What blew me away most about Becks, besides from being full of love , kind and always positive was the way she could connect with complete strangers. As customers would walk away not only happy and smiling that they had just received the best ice cream in the world but the fact that they knew they had just met a beautiful person inside and out and that they would have a better day because of that. Becky you will be missed by that complete stranger and all the other people who had the pleasure to meet you. My condolences go out to the whole family. RIP Becks.

I will miss Becky so much. I loved her like a sister. I will always remember the Mondays when we went to Sevierville to check on Minnie. Becky, Libby, and I would always stop and get a hamburger and head on over to check on Minnie. Then somedays Becky would pick up Minnie and we would go to the mountains and cook out hot dogs. These are very special memories of a very special friend! I love you Becky!
