Becky was born May 23, 1935 in Lincoln, NE. She was raised by her Aunt Beulah Oldenburg. She grew up working in a bakery, learning to make biscuits and pie crusts by feel. Her chocolate pies were loved by all. She also worked as a nanny. At age 16, she came to Texas. On August 27, 1952, Becky married the love of her life, Roy H. Fletcher in San Antonio. For over 10 years, she worked as a real estate agent in Houston. Becky and Roy later moved to a farm in Independence, enjoying the slower pace of life. She was always protective of her grandchildren and made sure her granddaughter wore her bonnet to shade her from the sunshine. Becky enjoyed cooking. When family or guests were invited for a meal, it was completely prepared upon their arrival and ready to enjoy. She never sat down, always wanting to serve her guests. Becky loved Elvis and The Beatles. She was an avid Astros fan.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband of 57 years Roy Howard Fletcher, Sr. and son Roy Howard Fletcher, Jr.
