Louis and I have so many wonderful memories of Becky. She was such a kind friend and had a beautiful smile. Who can forget the cruise we took together and the maitre’d who got Sheridan for her at dinner. The pictures I have are precious and we will always cherish the memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Our most sincere sympathy. Louis and Karen

Phil and I considered Becky family. We met as neighbors then became friends and then family She was a step mother to our little cat snuggles.. They had coffee and treats every morning on Becky’s front porch.
Becky was a kind caring person and we will love and remember her always.
Becky always loved a good shopping trip. Our new little group of neighborhood gals would love to “leave the Ranch” and head out for a day trip to shop and enjoy lunch together. In the meantime the guys would gather for a drink or two. Speaking of a drink or two, Richard and Becky could always be found at one of the many fun parties we all enjoyed during those early years at Robson Ranch. Although they decided it was time to leave AZ to return to TX, we will always remember them with such great fondness. Becky had a smile for the ages!
