Rebecca Sue (Fairchild) King
February 20, 1960 – January 17, 2021
Becky Sue “Myrtle” King. 60, of Newalla passed peacefully from this life on January 17, 2021 with her loving family by her side. Services have been entrusted to the care of Advantage Funeral Service of OKC. A celebration of Becky’s life will be held 2pm on Saturday, February 6, 2021 at the West Sherman Baptist Church in Sherman, TX. A service will be planned for Becky’s friends and co-workers in OKC in the near future. Rebecca Sue Fairchild was born on February 20, 1960 in Wamego, KS to Billy and Rita Mae (Whitley) Fairchild. She was raised in Denison, TX where she graduated in 1978 from Denison High School. Following her graduation from high school, Becky enrolled and attended classes at Grayson College in Grayson County, TX. In 1979, Becky met the love of her life, Richard King. After just 8 months together, Richard and Becky were married and have been together for 41 years. Becky took a position in radiology at Texoma Medical Center before relocating to OKC in 1985. She spent the next few years raising her two children, Shane and Amber. In 1985 the family moved to Mustang, OK but eventually settled in Newalla, OK in 1996. She spent a decade working in data entry for Fowler Productions in OKC. In the early 2000’s Becky accepted a position as an Admin Technologist with the OK State Dept. of Corrections. She made many wonderful friends during her 15+ years at the DOC and she loved the fact that over the past year she had the opportunity to work side-by-side with Amber. Becky was truly the glue that kept the office together. Becky’s bright smile and brilliant sense of humor helped instill a culture of kindness and comradery. Her can do attitude and feistiness made her easy to love and appreciate. Becky was a loving and compassionate woman who loved to go camping. Becky loved the Lord and her faith and family were the cornerstones of her life. She was happiest when she was surrounded by Richard, her children, and grandchildren. She loved to take random road trips with her kids and grandkids and attending family reunions was always a cherished event. She was a loyal wife, a dedicated mother, a proud grandmother, a loving daughter, and a caring sister. Becky made more wonderful memories in her short 60 years than most people could make in 100 years. She left an unmistakable mark on the lives of those around her and she will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her. Becky was preceded in death by her sister Angela Bucher and her grandparents: Raymond and Minerva Fairchild and Floyd and Alma Whitley. Left behind to carry on Beck’s legacy of selfless compassion are her husband and best friend Richard King; two children: Shane King and Amber Gaynor; parents Billy and Rita Fairchild; four grandchildren: Tyler Parsons, Jordyn Parsons, Kloie Phillips, and Jace Gaynor; a sister Debbie Neasbitt; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and other beloved family members, friends, and co-workers.

I worked with Becky at Fowler and she quickly became one of my best friends. I loved her strong country accent. We ate lunch together and sometimes going through the drive through was an experience. After the kid asked for the third time what dressing she wanted for her salad I leaned over and said “Ranch- R A N C H”. We laughed all the way back to the office because the kid couldn’t understand her accent. Or Once we were a little late getting back to work because for a house being transported. Our conversation turned to no one is ever going to believe this. (Cell phones didn’t have cameras at that time). We were right no one believed us until Collin came in the next day with a picture from the newspaper of the house being transported. Even though we would go a bit without seeing each other we would make plans about every 6 months to catch up. I loved her stories and her contagious laugh. I will miss you my dear friend. I love you with all my heart.

Our fond memories with Becky are many years ago from Denison and East Baptist Church. Our youth group went to worship and Falls Creek. We played volleyball, softball, kick the can and rode over Day Street railroad tracks with much laughter. Through it all, we supported each other. We are sharing a photo of some of the "girls" (Gigi, Paula, and Becky) on the church bus that hauled us to so many places. We know she is with Angela in Heaven with her ever present smile upon her face. We pray for Becky's family and our support is for the family.

Becky loved her family so much. I was blessed to know her and will never forget her contagious laugh. We shared each other's sons and loved them as our own. Love & Miss you Always. You won the race.

I will always remember the trips we made to Texas and Oklahoma and the trips Becky made to Colorado to visit. We have so many memories and I am blessed to have had her as my cousin. I thank Jesus for putting her in my life! She will be greatly missed. I remember her last trip in September 2020, she said that was her new favorite time of the year to come! She was so excited to she Richard so happy to see the elk and listen to them. So blessed to have spent that day with them! Love you Becky!
