Becky graduated Valley High School in 1960 and moved to Atlanta to begin a career of more than 35 years with the Equitable Insurance Company, from which she retired in 2005. After retirement, she moved back home to Lanett and quickly became involved in several local community groups.

Becky was a dedicated, and active, member of the Huguley United Methodist Church, where she served as treasurer. She could always be found cooking and serving at the church’s monthly Friday lunches. She was a humble lady who had a servant’s heart and loved to help out wherever she could.
