Becky was passionate about helping others. She worked for St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield as a Home Health Caregiver and a phlebotomist. She continued this passion by volunteering as an EMT with the Shipman Fire Department while raising her children. Becky loved music, especially the band Fleetwood Mac and was a collector of antiques.

Additionally, Becky’s caregiver Amy Schultz provided exceptional care for the last seven years as she struggled with Alzheimer’s. Becky passed away at home with her loving family by her side. She is also survived by her brother Tim Lonergan and nieces and nephews Libby Conroy, Jeremiah Jacobs, Ryan Lonergan, and Lindy Lonergan. Becky was preceded in death by her father, Robert, her mother, Marjorie, her step-father Lawrence Prose, and her sister, Sharon Jacobs.
