I was the supervisor of Becky's when she worked at Price Rd. Complex.She left and wanted to take that summer off & come back next year; sadly she died. Becky was a fun loving and caring person.
I told her upon meeting her that she looked familiar, lol needless to say i had know her and her sister and mom when they were smaller. Plus she was a cousin to Diane and Marylin Bethards, sis-in-laws of my sister. A sad loss
