Messages & Condolences

From Ruthann Browne Siebert...

Learning of Becky’s death has brought such sorrow to my heart. We were friends from Lawrence High School. I send my condolences and love your way, hoping that the strength of family may buoy you up. I have always found that God enjoys a sense of humor. He must — I’ve seen it sparkle in Becky’s laughing eyes and bring music to her voice. May He comfort you and bring your family peace.

From Virginia Wulfkuhle & Linda Cecchini...

Please accept these belated but sincere condolences from Becky’s Wulfkuhle cousins and school classmates. Her vivacious personality never diminished and LHS class of 1966 reunions will never be quite the same.

From Valerie Foos...

Larry, I was stunned to hear of Becky’s passing. She was so full of light and life always. I don’t think we ever had a conversation where we didn’t laugh. The world will miss her very much, but she has gone on to spread joy beyond earth’s boundaries. Her loving legacy will live on in you and her friends, children, and grandchildren.

From Theresa Laas (Terry)...

There are no words to help you through your grief at this time, just memories.
Becky was a treasure.
I went to Emporia and roomed right across the hall from her and we had such good times.
I was so sorry that we lost touch but families take priority, especially grandchildren.
Please know that all of you are in my prayers.

From Sara Terrones...

To Becky’s family…..her college friends (Roma, Linda, Terry, Max, Judy, Suzi)send our condolences. We are saddened to hear of Becky’s passing. Gosh we remember the crazy things she did and how she always made us laugh. Can’t forget the times when she would pierce ears right in her dorm room and use a close pin to numb the ears! And she was our own in-house beauty and fashion consultant….gee those were the days. Can’t forget our trips to Centaur’s Den for 10 cent draws! Becky is one in a million!

From Mick and Vickie Lowe...

Larry, Sherry, Fred, and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of Becky’s death. It is hard to imagine that her vibrant personality and zest for life is no longer with us. I remember fondly the great fun we had as next door neighbors and friends, and the many times we shared life experiences as we wore a path back and forth between our houses. I know the loss of a terrific wife, mom, and sister is painful, but I hope that there is some comfort in the fact that she was loved and appreciated by so many.

From Linda Caldwell...

Kelli and Family:

I am so sorry to hear about your lost. Reading about your mother’s life, she made the most of it and you should be very proud of her. Take Care.

My thoughts are with you Larry and family. I was a high school classmate of Becky’s at LHS. Becky was always engaging with a great sense of humor, which I always appreciated. Once you met Becky you always remembered her. She always added a little zest to every occasion. I never wondered where Becky stood on an issue, she always let you know. She made life more fun.
