HURRICANE - Margaret Lee Becker, 83, passed away Monday, March 12th from a short, but fierce battle with cancer. Margaret was born April 3, 1923 to Frank & Mable Lee. She moved to Las Vegas, Nev. for work in 1942. On January 31, 1945, she married Christus Becker and soon became a fulltime housewife raising her children with all of the love and devotion any career could have. Margaret was known for her compassion and love for all and her wonderful sense of humor. She was a very talented person in anything she attempted: needlework, sewing, porcelain dolls, and china painting. Margaret was also actively involved in the LDS Church, Daughter-of-the-Utah pioneers, and ceramics and china painting organizations.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Margaret was preceded in death by her son, Christus Becker, Jr.; her siblings, Afton Lee and Elizabeth Burgess of Utah, and Dixie Lee of Las Vegas. She is survived by her husband, Christus Becker, her sons, Richard Lee Becker of Tacoma, Wash. and Franklin Becker of Las Vegas and her three daughters, Linda Becker, LouAnn Blackwell, and Marcyne Brown, all of Las Vegas. Margaret had 27 grandchildren, 42 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great-grandchildren.
