Beckey was a great lover of the Wizard of Oz and she would want to share these quotes to comfort those who miss her bright light and presence: “Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me. May God bless you and keep you, until we meet again somewhere over the rainbow. There's no place like Home.”
Service and entombment private at Queen of Heaven Cemetery. A memorial celebration of Beckey’s life will be arranged when it is safe to gather post-pandemic.
