Becky was born January 29, 1968 in Denver, Colorado daughter of Roger and Sharon (Darlington) Carter.
Becky lived most of her life in Alaska and attended Special Education classes at Dimond High School. She lived in the Mat-Su Valley since 1998 and received community support from Mat-Su Service for Children and Adults (MSSCA). Becky loved bright colors, and enjoyed wearing matching earrings and necklaces. She collected Winnie the Poohs, had a fondness for Disney movies and Little House on the Prairie. Becky decorated her apartment for the various holidays and she would provide goodies to those who visited. Becky also loved making ceramics and giving them as gifts. She enjoyed going out to her favorite local restaurants, parties, root beer, and playing darts.
Mat-Su Services for Children and Adults provided support to her for over 13 years. Prior to that she lived in Anchorage and received community support from Hope. With MSSCA’s support and love she was able to remain in the community in her own apartment for the last five years and live a fulfilling and adventurous life. Becky had many wonderful care givers who worked with her through the years and she valued those memories.
Becky is survived by her loving and caring "extended family" and many friends in the community. She had many adventures with her "extended family" that included visiting Santa at the North Pole, summer RV camping trips around Alaska, swimming, volunteering and she loved to bake and deliver sweets to those who were special to her.
Becky will be remembered for her smiles, big heart and her sometimes mischievous side.
