Please be prepared to share fun memories or stories you have of Becky. We want to celebrate how she touched all our lives.
Becky was born on April 14, 1950, in Amarillo, Texas to Jo and Clyfton Wilkerson. She was raised in Amarillo where she was a beautiful dancer and ballerina. She danced in the first productions of Texas in Palo Duro Canyon. Dancing was her passion and she always felt free and happy. Now we know she is dancing everyday pain and worry free. Becky was also very intelligent and graduated from SMU with a degree in Mathematics and Dance. She went on to teach dance at KU and at a private studio. She loved teaching and was so passionate about it. She did everything BIG and with a passion and tenacity that was passed on to her children. After her career in dance, she found a spot in the service industry. She had a long and successful career as a restaurant General Manager until she retired January 1st, 2020. Becky did not get to enjoy the textbook happy retirement years due to COVID, and then her illness. We hope she is relaxing and enjoying all the beauty heaven has to offer. We know that we are happy to have her as a guardian angel watching over our family. Becky embraced life with a positivity and a smile always. She always had an available ear and was an amazing friend. Becky loved her Cokes, M&M’s, Betty Boop, Wolves, and Dogs. She may have even loved dogs more than people as her front door says, “Dogs Welcome People Tolerated”. Her laugh was infectious even when it was a bad dad joke.
Becky was proceeded in death by Lettie Jo Wilkerson (Mother), Clyfton Wilkerson (Father), Sherry Cowan (Sister), Stephen Johnson (Husband) and Robert McNeil (Husband). Becky loved her family and grandchildren so much. They will be proud to carry on her legacy of positivity and selflessness. Becky is survived by her two children, Kim Cordero and Craig Johnson, her sister Carol Webb, and brother Mike and his wife Marlyce Wilkerson. She is also survived by her five grandchildren Kobe Looper (Kim’s Daughter) and Craig and Josy Johnson’s bunch; Reed, Hazel, Ruby and Penelope. We can’t leave out her dog Cub who has found a new home with Kobe and her granddogs; Jango, Sophie and Chance.
