Barbara A. Becker returned to her Heavenly Father November 12, 2017. She was born on October 26, 1934, in the living room of the home her grandfather built in Aboite Township. She was the daughter of Doris and Margaret (McMaken) VanHoozen, who preceded her in death. She grew up on a forty-acre family farm with her younger sister Joyce (Ken) Offord and brother Richard (Debbie) VanHoozen, who both survive her. She graduated from Jefferson Center High School, where she was senior class president. She then worked at Western Union where she met Joseph C. Becker. They were wed on October 9, 1954, and were married 53 years before Joe's death in 2007. Together they raised six children, Michael (Ellen) Becker of Fort Wayne, Kevin (Karen) Becker of Oxford, IN, Mark (Christi) Becker of Chelsea, MI, Doris (Mark) Biddle and Robert (Heather) Becker, both of Noblesville, IN, and Patricia (Joe) Bond of FOrt Wayne, all of whom survive her. As the children got older, Barb worked at GTE, where she spent many years until her retirement. She was a charter member of Saint Henry's Parish and was a member of St. Charles Parish in her later years. She had a zeal for life, lived her faith, and loved her family and friends. She was always thankful for her blessings. She was a gift to all who knew her and will be greatly missed. In addition to her children and siblings, Barbara is survived by 22 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren; two grandchildren preceded her in death.
