Becky grew up and lived in Gonzales county most of her life. She started working at Citizens State Bank in Luling on Saturdays as a senior in high school and she retired from Sage Capital Bank in Gonzales fifty years later. Just out of high school she married Ronnie Connell. They had one child, Ron Connell, Jr.
Becky grew up in the country and loved the outdoors. She spent countless hours on the Guadalupe river over the years either fishing, skiing, or just boating. She also loved her trips to Las Vegas or Louisiana to play blackjack. She will be missed by the dealers she had become close with.
Her son Ron and his wife Kelli blessed her with two precious granddaughters, Bailey and Corie, who she was so very proud of.
After retiring, she and other retired lady friends started a Friday morning coffee group in Luling. She looked forward to that each week catching up on all the local news and being with dear friends.
