She was born and raised in Modesto, California, attended Chrysler Elementary School, Prescott Junior High School, and was a graduate of Grace M. Davis High School, class of 1994. She studied general education at Modesto Junior College and attended Carlton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
Becky was the most sincere and genuine daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, aunt, and the best of friends to her family and all that came to know her; from new acquaintances to customers that came to her as a clerk at the post office. She worked at the Remote Encoding Center (REC), and the following post offices: Valley Springs, San Andreas, Hammer Ranch Center, Salida, Victor, Woodbridge, and most recently at the Acampo Post Office. She worked as a noon supervisor for Stanislaus Union School, receptionist for Green & Azevedo Law Offices, and secretary of Our Lady of Fatima Church in Modesto.
She cherished and loved her friends as much as she adored roses, great books, poetry, romantic movies, family, and above all, her nieces and nephews. She was creative and a master craftswoman, creating the most intricate friendship bracelets for others. Becky was caring, considerate and shared her loving heart; she spread kindness; she sowed love.
