    Becky was such a delightful woman and we will always
    Remember her passion for RVing and her family. We heard
    Stories about Cody and RW and her mother and siblings. We still have
    A wall hanging that mother made for us. Pandas. And a Burl wood
    Bowl sits on our entry table. She was so excited to get her Tiger
    Motorhome, it was perfect for Becky. She came to Topeka and
    Spent a weekend with us that left innumerable memories.
    Finally Becky you have peace. Peace from a disease that robbed
    You from life way too soon. Blessings to you and your sweet family.

    Revelation 21:4 – And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    I first became acquainted with Becky Pritchard when our sons, Cody & Justin became good friends in elementary school – a friendship that remains today. Becky always had a quick smile & a friendly word. I got to visit her church in Springdale & admired that she was a woman of faith. Becky was a facinating person – from the different careers/positions she’d held to her many travels. But what I admired about her most was the kind of mother she was – how she loved & cherished Cody. After his many accomplishments at Greenland School & U of A, Cody went to Seattle, attended college & started his career and she was so proud & happy about that! She told me so the last time I saw her. She also told me that Cody had met a special girl named Jess – and how she hoped they would marry. She was just beaming! I know she was so happy when that marriage did happen! My heart goes out to Becky’s husband, and to Cody & Jess. And I am honored to have known this amazing woman.
