On April 3, 1983, Becky was born to Ramon Montoya and Sheilah Montoya in Roswell, NM. Becky possessed a spirited sense of humor and enjoyed having a good time. She was a ‘real’ person with great makeup skills and a special gift for singing and acting, including performing in Cinderella for 13 years. Becky loved her owls and tattoos and adored her family more than anything. Her smile, sense of humor and laugh will be greatly missed by family and friends.

She would never want to forget some very special people (her name sake) Auntie Beckey, Uncle Mando and Aunt Cecilia Aurora.
