Becky graduated from Cumberland Valley High School in 1977 where she twirled a rifle in the bandfront. She was crafty and loved to make things with her hands, found great joy in planning parties and events, and made it her personal mission to crochet a baby blanket for every single baby welcomed into the world by her numerous friends and family.
She was an avid collector of pig figurines, and enjoyed her many trips antiquing with her Uncle Johnny searching for those must have treasures. She was always ready to help any friend in need, and was willing to listen to the life story of a stranger. She was quick to offer a smile and motherly advice. She loved planning gifts and surprises for anyone and everyone.
She was active in her community, assisting with the Pennsylvania Pump Primers Association. She was passionate about recycling, as her job at the New Cumberland Army Depot had her assisting with sustainable ways to reuse our resources.
