Becky was a life-long residence of Manchester and attended Manchester High School graduating in 1972. She was a long-time employee of the Ayres Eat & Treat in Manchester. She was a strong advocate of animal causes including support of The Humane Society of Adams County and other organizations. She shared pictures of dogs and other animals via social media, ensuring abandoned or otherwise lost pets were able to find good forever homes. Becky attended the Church of the Nazarene in Manchester. Becky had the most gibing heart and kindest soul, and it showed as she always did whatever she could to whomever was lucky enough to engage with her giving nature. Becky will be sadly missed by her family and her many, many friends.
