  1. Gary and Family,
    Becky was a special life long friend, as we grew up from grade 1 at Huff Consolidated School in Hanover, WV and 12th grade at Baileysville High School in Baileysville, WV. We had every class together in all those years except one. We also attended Hanover Baptist Church and the Girl Scouts (the only after school activities available) together. Becky became a chair leader, while I chose basketball and volleyball. We shared many thoughts, dreams and plans along with another member of our group of friends that being Debby Blankenship Sherwood, myself as known Geraldine Hatfield Mahoney. In those days we had no differences and this included Larry Lester, Gary Hatfield, Roger Lowe, the 5 Linda’s, Brenda’s, Patsy, Penny, the 3 Roberts and all that were in our grade. After high school we started our own path in life and moved miles apart. Becky, Debby and I stayed in touch neary 55 years on. Becky and Gary to Calif, Debby and Sam went to Maine and Pat and I to northern Ontario, Canada. We got more visits after we retired, but all those other years we wrote letters and cards, phone calls and finally emails and texts. We shared the good, the bad and in different times both personal and worldwide situtations and finally to health problems. It will be very difficult for me to let Becky have her Angel Wings, but I can’t imagine the pain you will endure to let her fly. All that I add is until meet again God’s grace and mercy. Peace be with you. Ever loved your friend, Geraldine Hatfield Mahoney

  2. Gary, Rachel, and Andrew,

    I am sorry and saddened to hear of Becky’s passing. My condolences, prayers and love are with each of you.I have fond memories Becky and each of you. It is my prayer that God will favor each of you with His grace, love and peace.

  3. My sincere condolences to Gary and the family. I remember that Becky and Gary joined Aldersgate UMC in Shelby NC as the same time I did. We spent a number of years together working with the youth . I also remember Becky’s soft spoken voice and her spiritual insight. Rest In Peace Becky. You have gone on to your heavenly reward.

  4. Roy Kenton and Bobby and Families,
    I wanted to express my deep sympathy to you and your Families in this sad news about Becky. Becky, Debbie (Blankenship) Sherwood and I (Geraldine Hatfield) have been close friends for 66 years. Many miles separated us, but not the friendship. We grew up together from Grade 1 at Huff Consolidated School to Grade 12 at Baileysville High School. We were in every home room, study hall and class except one. From a young age and now into our seventies we never had a disagreement or maybe no opinion at all. Just as you and your friends navigated your lives. We remember well Addie and Grandma Rebecca, so many called her Aunt Rebecca. We remember the grocery store and move from the white house to the bunglow that was so loved. Addie let us have sleep overs from a young age and Debbie’s mom and mine let us stay. No we never manage to stay up after midnight and up early the next day. We all had chores to get done. Times were so different then. No explaination needed. I expect it wasn’t different when you grew up either. Swimming in Huff Creek, the high water and floods, the traffic on US 52, the school days at Huff and Baileysville and the bus rides over the mountains. Lots to remember and ponder. You will have your own special memories of your important facts of life. Remember them and have a good laugh. Don’t be afraid to say her name in joy and fondness.

    Becky was a bright, energetic and compassionate girl. she spoken often of you and things happening in your lives or her next visit. I was visiting my brother, Ken and the 3 of us got together, she and Gary had left your company. Bobby, Becky told us about your long phone call to chat. We also got together in SC when I went for a neice’s wedding and in Columbus, Ohio at Thanksgiving time. I shall alway cherious our friendship.

    Becky was more than lucky that her life’s partner, Gary was so loving and caring of her. She was his queen and she responded well. They were happy and in love. Rachel and Andrew were her greatest joy in life. She was happy and healthy and credits her brother for finding her the best doctor in the world. Gary continued to help and support her mediucal needs.

    As we bid her safe journey home to heaven, I find it hard to give her her Angel Wings, but your pain to let her fly will be unmeasureable. I hope that God’s mercy and comfort finds you as she gets her rest in peace. May God bless us all and keep us in his care. Again my love and thoughts to you, Geraldine Hatfield MahoneyP

  6. Dear Gary,
    Becky was my best friend throughout my entire life. Our friendship spanned 66 years, from first grade until now. I loved her dearly. We spent our childhood days exploring life together with all the excitement of our youth and teen years. We joined the Girl Scouts together and were Baptized holding hands when we were 16. We took all our classes together in high school and as many as we could at Marshall University. We left Hanover together in the fall of 1968 and attended Marshall University for 4 years. We came back to Hanover many weekends and never without each other; Becky always the driver. Becky visited me at all the locations Sam and I lived with the exception of Camden, Maine. She and I kept in touch by telephone and text often. Her last visit was March, 16 of this year. Little did I know that this would be the last time I would see her and hug her. She left Sam and me the sweetest thank you note for our hospitality. I have it in my Bible. My heart is broken and I will miss her all the days of the rest of my life.

  7. Gary and family,
    Our hearts are with you during athis time when words are not enough. Becky was the first person we met in Journeys and always made everyone feel special. We will keep you in our prayers.

  8. Dear Gary, Rachel and Andrew,
    Becky will certainly be missed by all of us in the Journey’s Sunday school class. She took care of all newcomers to the class and made sure she called everyone who was sick or hadn’t been to class in a while. So caring of everyone! Such a lover of Jesus! We all knew how much she loved Him!
    We will miss her cheeriness to all!
    Rest In Peace, dear Becky!

  9. Gary, Rachel, and Andrew,

    We are so sorry for your loss. Becky was a great friend when we needed one and we will always remember her for being so kind and understanding.

  10. To Becky Lou’s family,
    I first met Becky Lou in first grade at Huff Consolidated School. For the next eight years we were in the same room. We attended Baileysville High together and had many classes together.
    I remember when we were in grade school Becky Lou was our storekeeper. Her mother, Addie, operated a small store, and whenever we had a spare nickel, we would have Becky Lou bring us gum or candy to school. Oh, those were the days! I never heard Becky Lou say a harm word about anyone. She was always had a positve attitude and was pleasant to be with and fun to be around.
    I haven’t seen Becky Lou in a long time, but I often think of her and those wonderful days at Huff and Baileysville, and it brings a big ole smile to my face. I could go on forever, but I won’t. She was Becky to you, but she was and always will be Becky Lou too me,
    Please accepct my condolences and my deepest sympathies.
