Lillian Walt Becker

April 20, 1929November 26, 2019

Lillian Walt Becker entered into eternal rest on November 26, 2019 at the age of 90. She was a loving homemaker and the devoted wife of the late Alvin F. Becker, with whom she shared 61 years of happy marriage.

Mrs. Becker was a native of New Orleans and became a lifelong resident of Old Jefferson in 1954 when they moved into their newly built home. She then became a parishioner of the St. Agnes Church and attended Mass every Saturday evening as long as she was able.

Mrs. Becker was preceded in death by her parents Jennie Smith and John H. Walt, and her sister Muriel Walt Gautreaux.

After graduating from High School, Lillian accepted a job as a Secretary at a Wholesale Dry Goods Company; a position she really enjoyed for 7 ½ years. She left in 1953 to become a full time Mother and wife.

Lillian was a loving mother, wife, aunt, lifelong catholic, and remained steadfast in her religious faith. In life she was greatly loved; in death she will be sadly missed, and forever be in our hearts and prayers.

She leaves behind her cherished memories to her devoted son John S. Becker, his spouse Betty J. Becker and to her niece/Godchild Linda Hall. The loving caregiving from them enabled her to stay in her own home as she so desired. She is also survived by loving nieces and nephews. However, after living independently for several years, it became necessary for her to move into an Assisted Living Home for Senior Citizens; namely Sunrise of Metairie. Here Lillian enjoyed taking part in many daily activities and socializing. She also enjoyed the comfort and Security at Sunrise, and remained a resident there until the Lord called her home. Many thanks to the entire staff at Sunrise for making Lil Becker’s stay very pleasant. Also wish to thank “Heart of Hospice” for all their quality and compassionate care giving.

Miss Lilly was one of a kind, as her new neighbors she welcomed us with open arms and a tin of cookies. It was the sweetest gesture.

While enjoying tea together in her kitchen , she would share all the old stories of the neighborhood; trust me she remembered everything!

She gave to me a little nic nac of hers and she said “I want you to have this to remember me by and as a thank you for being a good neighbor.” She gloated over the various little gifts in her Curio Cabinet that her son and his wife brought back to her from all of their vacations; she share every story in detail ... she was amazing!

Miss Lilly was the kind of person you did not say no to and as I quickly learned that was because she did not accept the word “No” as an answer.

She was a kind and respectful lady and my heart is heavy today.. however I know she has found peace in the loving arms of her father in Heaven.

Our most sincere condolences to her loving family and you will certainly be in our hearts and prayers.

Dearest Miss Lilly, may you Rest In Peace!
We will keep your memory and generous spirit alive and well in the neighborhood.

I will always remember Mrs. Becker and her enthusiasm while coaching her son and the rest of us bowlers at Bowlarama and De La Salle.
A wonderful woman!
May God hold her in His Arms.
