She was a supportive and active volunteer member of the Roanoke Valley Pony Club supporting both her girls and niece Kimberly, as the girls competed together at many club events. Becky could often be seen beside the riding ring or near the cross country jumps with a camera, videoing ‘her girls’, and cheering them on to success.!
Becky will be remembered for her special ability to ‘light up a room’ with her outgoing personality, amazing sense of humor, and her winsome smile. She lived and shared her Christian faith and values throughout her life. Her devotion to Bob and her family was always evident to others. In order to secure the best education for their girls, Becky and Bob were both pioneers for the homeschool community in Roanoke County emphasizing their Christian values, their faith, and the importance of family involvement. Both Becky and Bob enjoyed traveling, always together, always with special joy and laughter following them, as their time together was truly a special gift for them. Becky was an avid amateur wildlife photographer and her numerous and beautiful pictures reflect the many travel experiences she and Bob had including Cade’s Cove in Tennessee, the beach, trips across the country , and short weekend drives through the nearby countryside which were among their favorite journeys together.
