Becky grew up in Franklin and attended Franklin Community Schools.
She was employed at Earlywood Education Services and later retired from Creekside Elementary where she worked in Special Education Services.
Becky was a member of Victory Church in Franklin. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend. Becky enjoyed spending time with and cooking for her family, playing cards, going for rides, and she loved her dogs Miley and Susie dearly. She loved her grandchildren, attending their sporting events, or just giving and receiving back rubs. She loved the summertime and sunshine, sitting on her front porch and talking to neighbors. Becky will be remembered for her kind and loving heart, spunky personality, and her “never give up” attitude. She was a caregiver, confidant, and friend to many and she will be greatly missed.
