Dealing with Death

I have been away from my art and from my blog for the past week. I flew to Florida last Saturday to be with my Mother in her last days and with my sister and her family as we sort through the personal, the financial and the emotional aspects that come with a death in the family.

Margery Ann Popp Becker was born in St.Paul, Minnesota December 5, 1922. She breathed her last breath in Clearwater, Florida February 13, 2007. She spent over 50 years in her beloved home in Afton, Minnesota, and lived her final years in Safety Harbor, Florida. Predeceased by her husband, Eugene Debs Becker, longtime companion, William Olsen, granddaughter Emma Marie Richards and siblings William Popp, Jr. and Jeanne Moeglien. Survived by her daughters Hanje Richards and Lael Becker, sons-in-law Rod Richards and Mile Tubic, grandchildren Jack Richards and Shyenne Tubic and sister Dorothy Popp Waldref .

Margery (also known as Marge, Margie and Marnie) taught sixth grade for many years at Lake Elmo Elementary School in Lake Elmo, Minnesota. She was variously a member of Unity Church Unitarian in St. Paul, White Bear Unitarian Universalist Church and Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: The Hospice Foundation of the Florida Suncoast, 5771 Roosevelt Blvd., Clearwater, Florida 33760
