Becky was born Friday, April 20, 1973, in Ottawa, the daughter of Richard and Marilyn “Susie” (Tipton) Riemer.
She was a lifelong Ottawa resident and graduated from Ottawa High School with the class of 1993.
Survivors include her parents, Ottawa; sister, Rachel Davidson and husband, Kevin, Gardner; maternal grandfather, Samuel Tipton Sr., Ottawa; nephews, Keanon, Kaden and Christopher Davidson; niece, Britney Davidson; nine aunts; 11 uncles; and many cousins.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Riemer; nephew, Brandon Davidson; maternal grandmother, Eleanor Tipton; and paternal grandparents, Ralph and Viola Riemer.
Becky worked for the Ottawa school district as a paraprofessional for several years. She was also employed as a cook for Head Start in Pomona. For the past five years, she worked for Little People’s Place Child Development Center in Gardner, first as a cook and then as a preschool teacher.
She was an active member of Crosspointe Community Church, Ottawa, where she passionately served in many capacities. Becky sang with the worship team, taught a girls group on Wednesday nights, and was a vital part of the Vacation Bible School ministry. Whenever she was able and the church doors were open or there was a volunteer job that needed to be done, Becky was there.
Becky was a kind and caring person who always had a smile on her face. She loved her family and always enjoyed spending time with her nephews. Becky was a loyal friend and enjoyed making others happy; she would do anything for a laugh — even if it came at her own expense.
As an avid crafter, Becky enjoyed making greeting cards. She also enjoyed bargain hunting at garage sales, and would always be mindful of what others might need.
The family suggests memorial contributions to Crosspointe Community Church Children’s Ministries through Dengel & Son Mortuary, 235 S. Hickory St., Ottawa KS 66067.
