Together they had two children, Ronnie (Jennifer) McBroom of Ingleside, and Melinda (Chris) Bentley of Portland. Becky worked for Scanio, Teer, Cox, and Steele for 38 and a half years. Becky enjoyed working in her yard and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary Prince Young and Wilford Lee Young Sr.; and her older brother, Bill Young Jr.
She is survived by her husband Ronald; and children, Ronnie and Melinda; six grandchildren, Heston, Hailey, and Gavin Henkhaus, Hunter and Matthew McBroom and Justin (Jacey) Lewis; two great-grandchildren, Hadleigh and Breklynn Lewis; as well as her younger brother, Mike (Bertha) Young.
