BECKY HOLLAND Rebecca Ruth Hopkins Holland, 74, passed away peacefully after a long struggle with Alzheimer's Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, in Louisville, Colo., with her husband, of 45 years, by her side. "Becky" was born Feb. 27, 1938, in Newton, Miss., and spent most of her youth in south Texas, where her father was an oil field worker and her mother was a seamstress. Becky worked from a young age as a waitress, service representative for the telephone company and spent 29 years as a realtor. She began her real estate career in Virginia Beach, and worked in Las Vegas, Ridgecrest, Calif., Kennewick and Vancouver, Wash. She was preceded in death by her father, Luther Hamilton Hopkins; her mother, Fannie Edna Thomas Hopkins Coker; and sister, Katherine Hopkins.

Besides her love of family, friends, her church and her passion for selling real estate, she enjoyed cooking, crocheting, traveling and shopping. Nordstrom was her second home. She was outgoing and known for her helpful and caring spirit. Her generosity often led to her opening her home to family and friends who needed a place to call home themselves for however long they needed. During and after Jack's Navy career, she managed nearly two dozen moves without a complaint.
