Becky graduated from Fairfield High School Class of 1973. She worked at Plexco and helped her husband on the farm. After her husband passed away she and her boys did the farming.

Becky was a familiar face at the Fairfield Farmers’ Market. During the summer she would sell raspberries. Becky was always an independent woman who had boundless energy and cared about mankind and respecting our planet Earth. As one of the leading organic farmers in SE Iowa, Becky was willing to explore new challenges to assist in the protection of our fragile ecosystem. She was generous with her time and spirit and truly enjoyed giving to her family, friends and neighbors.
