 Becky worked at Royalton Foot and Ankle as a medical assistant. She loved her job and she loved her patients, with whom she built heartfelt relationships. Becky was driven by her family. She was a dedicated mother and wife. The love she had for her children was like no other. She spent her days being the #1 fan with Larry at their children’s ball games and choir concerts. Becky also enjoyed spending her time in the U.P. with her family watching the freighters pass by. Becky liked to shop and explore. She was Gigi to her grandbabies who held a very special place in her heart. Becky would do anything in the world to make you laugh if you were having a bad day and always had the best advice to give whenever needed. She was determined, spunky, hilarious, selfless, caring, smart, spontaneous, honest and loving. No one could get in her way.
