As a fellow parishioner with Becky at St. Matthew’s, and a fellow member of the handbell choir, I recall fondly Becky’s enthusiasm, good humor, kindness, and willingness to roll up her sleeves and help with things needing done. And who can forget her smile. Kate, Mark, and I extend our sincerest condolences to all the Wilson, Brown, and St. Matthew’s families. The world has lost an angel.
