Emagene Rose Becker passed away Friday, September 15, 2017 in Kent, WA. She was born January 25, 1936 in Grand Junction, CO and moved to Yakima, WA in 1948 where she grew up. She married Robert N. Becker on September 18, 1954 and raised their two children; Robert and Rhonda.

She relished shopping for antiques in hopes of adding to her Fenton glass collection. She also enjoyed bowling, horseback riding, crafts, and reading. She was always willing to try new things. She was very active in the Willys Overland Knight and Golden ERA Car Clubs. She was a Cub Scout Den Mother, PTA member, Marching Band Chaperone, and spent the last few years volunteering at Lake View Elementary School.

Of all her pleasures, her greatest was her love for her family. Her giving heart extended to others as she always welcomed friends of her children or grandchildren as if they were family.

Jean is survived by her son Robert (Marcia) of Colorado, grandkids, Robert and Corey; daughter Rhonda Rossman (Andy) of Auburn, grandkids Kirsten and Drew (Sarah).
