Marsha-Becker

Marsha Becker

October 1, 1944 - March 15, 2022

Marsha Becker passed away March 15, 2022, in McKinney, Texas at the age of 77. She was born October 1, 1944, to Harold Merle Brown and Miriam Lucille Sterrett Brown in Indianapolis, Indiana. Marsha married her high school sweetheart, William Charles “Bill” Becker, Jr. on June 5, 1965, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Marsha, affectionately known as “Mimi” will be remembered by her radiant smile and passion for life. Earlier in her life, Marsha was very supportive of her husband Bill in advancing his successful career.  She was supremely focused on raising her children and creating a warm and loving home. She did all this for a time while working at General Motors and UT Dallas. The love and fun at their home was shared beyond the Becker family and made their house a neighborhood favorite for all the kid’s friends, who adored Marsha (and Bill). Marsha also started a business with her best friends in floral home decorating called Mar2 designs that allowed her to pursue another one of her passions and her fondness for great style. Marsha enjoyed social and sports activities and was active with Tennis, Golf and travel with friends and family for many years. She was an active member of her community at Heritage Ranch Country Club performing in their annual variety shows, choir concerts all while serving as music librarian for the choral. Marsha sang in the church choir at Christ UMC and most recently at her church home, Suncreek UMC. She flourished by being on stage and truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures, spending time at the lake, chatting with friends and family, and supporting and cheering on her grandchildren or being with them was her favorite pastime. She will be deeply missed by friends, family and all that knew her.

A celebration of life service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Sunday, March 27th, 2022, at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas with Pastor Barry Hughes officiating. There will be a private committal service following the funeral at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen, Texas. The family will receive guests for a reception following the committal service at Marsha’s home in Heritage Ranch in Fairview. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the MDA organization www.mda.org that supported Marsha and family when Bill battled ALS.

Darlene Deitsch, March 26, 2022 I went to high school with Bill and Marsha. The last time I saw Marsha she still had that bright smile and hurrying to one of her grandchildren’s events but she time to say something to make me feel good. She had knack for that. Rest In Peace my old friend! Frank Johnson , March 26, 2022 For many years, our paths have crossed. We lived near each other in Plano, Texas. Our children went to school together and became friends at PSH. Both of our families were members of the Christ United Methodist Church. There, Marsha and I sang in the choir.. I was a soprano and Marsha was an alto - the same as the in Heritage Ranch choir where she kept and organized our sheet music. For five years, Marsha and I sang in the Variety Show at Heritage Ranch with the "Four Roses and Two Thorns". Marsha also danced with Betty Martin in "All That Jazz." She loved to perform in the "Charlie Brown" play with the HR Theatre. If there had been a most popular contest at Heritage Ranch, Marsha will have won- hands down. Marsha's death has left a hole in my heart. I will miss her forever.

I have great memories of Marsha at the lake house enjoying time with friends and family. Prayers that you will find peace. Meghan Vlach , March 18, 2022 I’m so sorry to hear about Marsha. She was a very special lady. I met Marsha in 1991 when Bill was working at Cushman. Over the years we continued our friendship through a book club. She loved getting together with the other women even if she didn’t finish the book. Marsha always made you feel special and loved. I’m sure that Bill was waiting for her in Heaven. Lana Antos, March 18, 2022 Marsha, you will be deeply missed. I always loved sitting behind you at the football games. You always laughed at my Quirky sense of humor. Paula Paula Smith, March 18, 2022 Marsha was an amazing lady who always had a smile no matter what she had going on. This is an incredible loss but she and Bill are together again. Libby Scobee , March 18, 2022 Earth’s loss is definitely Heaven’s gain. May you fly high above us with the angels and your beloved. We will miss you immensely, but we know you are in a much better place. May you Rest In Heavenly Peace. We love you! Joyce Paul, March 18, 2022
