Becky Ann Box, 61, of Boyd died Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, in Fort Worth.
Memorial service is 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, at White’s Azle Chapel.
Becky was born Sept. 15, 1952, in Stamford to Herschel “Bud” and Edna Merlene Couch Box. A graduate of Angelo State University, she taught school for a short time, later becoming an editor for TV Listing Inc. But mostly Becky was a teacher of life. She was a beloved mother, sister, friend and grandmother.
Becky embraced her Indian heritage, was brave, loyal and humble. She was selfless, accepting and always a calm in any storm. She was a fun-maker, risk-taker and a do-what-it-takes mom. She will be deeply missed and never forgotten.
Becky was preceded in death by her parents; daughter Jennifer Sparkman; brother Buddy Box; sister Bette Lang; and aunt Zelma Faye Allen.
Survivors include her children, David Lee Sparkman Jr., Rebecca LeAnn Sparkman, Joseph Wesley Sparkman and Sandra Elizabeth Jackson; 10 grandchildren; brother Bill Box; sister and best friend Chris Dawson; very good friend Charlene Sheasley Tyler; a niece; two nephews; and many friends.
Memorials may be made to MADD or Battered Women’s Shelters of America.
