Sadly missed by neighbours and companions in Florida and New Brunswick and St. Anne’s Court, Fredericton. Becky was a remarkable woman, a gracious hostess, and a keen curler and Bridge player. She was a woman of deep faith and we were blessed that she remained a vital part of the family until her final days. The family thank the kind and caring staff of 4NW Chalmers Hospital.
There will be a Memorial Service at the J.A. McAdam Chapel at McAdam’s Funeral Home, 160 York St. Fredericton on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at 2:00 pm with Pastor Wayne Flowers officiating.
