She acted as a Sunday School teacher and met many other areas of the church’s needs.

Becky and her children were active in North Ridge Rangers 4H Club. Her love of children led to nineteen years of caring for multiple day care kids. 

Becky’s interests included caring for her family and farm, the out of doors, and a love for animals. She enjoyed camping, canoeing, sewing, and caring for her garden. Most of all, she loved her children.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ronnie Lee, and her grandparents.

    if this doesn’t suck the big one, nothing does. If Becca was anything like the two of you, than she was a beautiful, graceful, loving person. I’m sorry we never met. But knowing and working with both have you, has enriched my life, surely as anyone close to you would have. Hugs and kisses…..

  23. Jill Merritt Olson April 9, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    My heart breaks for you all. I remember going to the hospital when she was born. I believe I was like 7 but I do recall the whole Merritt family waiting in the lobby to hear the news. It’s impossible to find words to say that would comfort all the emotions and sorrow we feel. And the questions will never be answered while we are still here on earth.
    So I will use the words of our great and awesome Comforter Jesus Christ. In the book of Job somewhere it says.. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

  24. Dixie K. (Summer) Myrick April 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm #

    Becky was such a compassionate and caring friend who always had a smile. We loved her! I will miss our chats and her stories. She was so creative and always had fun things to do with the children. They so looked forward to days off school and summers spent at Becky’s house. We will cherish the memories. ” To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”
    Always in our hearts. Thoughts and many prayers to her family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all today and will be, as time passes by. I wish I could give everyone a hug and an encouraging word today but know that I am lifting you all up to the Lord Jesus Christ. Isaiah 40:31 says: Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and be faint.
