– Becky, 61, died Thursday, July 31 in Salem. She was born
in Salem, spent several years in Germany, and settled in the
Stayton area. Becky enjoyed listening to her hundreds of
records that she collected over the years, watching the whales
and ocean waves at Depoe Bay, and camping at Detroit Lake. She
was a great cook who loved to sing, try out her comedy chops,
and spend time with friends. We will miss her great laugh and
wonderful sense of humor.
She was recognized for her volunteer work with the
Stayton School District.
