Becky was born Sept. 15, 1952, in Stamford to Herschel "Bud" and Edna Merlene Couch Box. She was a graduate of San Angelo State University. She taught school for a short time, later becoming an editor for TV Listing Inc. But mostly Becky was a teacher of life. She embraced her Indian heritage, was brave, loyal and humble.

Survivors: Children, David Lee Sparkman Jr., Rebecca LeAnn Sparkman, Joseph Wesley Sparkman, Sandra Elizabeth Jackson; 10 grandchildren; brother, Bill Box; her sister and best friend, Chris Dawson; very good friend, Charlene Sheasley Tyler; one niece; two nephews; and many friends.
