Becky Ann Lawson, 60, passed peacefully into the arms of Mother Nature on March 22, 2012 at 4:20 in the afternoon. She spent her last days at Central Wyoming Hospice Home surrounded by her loving family.
Becky was born on January 2, 1952 in Lusk, WY and attended school in Lance
Creek, WY until 5th grade when she moved with her family to Tripoli, Libya. She
attended the Oil Company School through Junior High and High School at
Wheelus Air Force Base, graduating in 1969 as part of the last class. Becky's son Jason was born November 6, 1972. They got to explore Brunei on the island of Borneo while staying with her parents.
After moving back to Wyoming, she lived in several places including Casper,
Lovell, Lander, Laramie, Thermopolis and finally Cheyenne where she attended
LCCC, graduating in 1992 with a Registered Nurse degree. Becky was one of the
first nurses employed at Central Wyoming Hospice Home. She also worked in
hospitals around the state as a traveling nurse, at Shepherd of the Valley Nursing
Home, and at Poplar Living Center.
Becky hated being cold and loved nothing more than being able to sit on a beach and soak up the sun. For the last couple of years, she got to cruise with her sister, nieces and several friends in the Caribbean. Go Grannies Gone Wild!
