July 6, 1951 - February 4, 2016
Rebecca “Becky/Becca” Powell passed away on February 4, 2016 at Baylor Medical in McKinney, Texas.
She was born on July 3, 1951 to TB and Billie Jean Powell at the M&S Clinic in Bonham, Texas. Becky was raised in the community of Ravenna, and attended school in Bonham. She was a 1969 graduate of Bonham High School. She was employed by The Veteran’s Administration in Bonham until her retirement in 2015. She leaves behind many friends there including Debbie Patton, Lawana May, and Melba White who her family thanks for all of their love and support. When Becky was not working, she could be found on any pretty day working in her yard or lounging in the pool and soaking up the sun. Becky was funny and kind, loved animals and children, and would never let you have a dull moment in her presence. She will be sorely missed.
