Marian was born February 22, 1912 to Edmund and Florence Johnson Richardson at Moville, IA. She married Henry Joseph Becker January 5, 1935 in Sioux City, IA. They moved to southern California in 1936 and returned to Iowa in 1943. They farmed near Cherokee, IA until 1954 when they moved to Paradise. They operated Becker's Egg Ranch on Sawmill Road until retiring. Marian was a Christian, showing Gods love throughout her life. She had many hobbies as well as being a farmer's wife. Drawing and painting were a great therapy for her. Much of her artwork is in friend's and family's homes. A camera always seemed to be in her hand at all the family gatherings. She also was one of the pioneers of the Paradise Genealogical Society. Henry and two daughters, Marlys and Barbara, predeceased Marian. She is survived by three sons and their wives Joe & Joan, Nick & Marion, and Tom & Jane all of Paradise. Marian also enjoyed 17 grandchildren, 47 great grandchildren and 13 great great grand children. Submitted by Cindy Cannon.
