Sept. 21, 1947 – Feb. 24, 2013
Becky was born Rebecca Emily Bialik on Sept. 21, 1947 in Lynwood, Calif. to her parents William and Veda Bialik. She and her older brother, Bob, and two younger sisters, Bonnie and Susan, were mainly raised in La Cañada and she attended St. Bede’s School, St. Andrew’s High School and Pasadena City College.
Becky married her high school sweetheart Tom and they spent the next 23 years in Pasadena raising their children Corinne and Kevin. Montrose was the family’s home away from home and Becky enjoyed several years as the owner of The Giving Tree Gift Shop. She won several Montrose Shopping Park Christmas decorating awards for her window displays.
Becky loved her home and family. Her giving heart would draw her to reach out to anyone in need and many were touched by her kindness and smile.
She welcomed her first three grandchildren before the discovery of a cancerous brain tumor. Even though the tumor caused damage to her brain and changed the life she once knew, she was miraculously healed of cancer and was given nearly 14 more years to welcome two more grandchildren and to fulfill God’s plan for her life. She went home to be with the Lord on Feb. 24.
She is survived by her husband, children, grandchildren and sisters, as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends that will all dearly miss her.
Donations in her honor can be made to Montrose Church, 2409 Florencita Dr., Montrose, 91020.
