Becky worked several different jobs over the years but was employed for some time at Specialized Products in Clintonville, until her health forced her to retire in 2020. Becky is a longtime member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Bear Creek. She enjoyed riding on the motorcycle and going fishing with her husband. Becky was an avid Green Bay Packer fan. She especially loved spending time with her family and friends.
