Becky Olsen(1959 - 2013)

Becky Wilcock Roundy Olsen

Harpster, ID

Becky was born October 3, 1959 in St. George, Utah to Arthur and Lenna Cox Wilcock.

She died November 27, 2013 in a tragic car accident near Tonopah, Nevada.

She married Steven Roundy in 1978 and they had nine children. After a divorce in 2004 she married Charles Olsen and moved to Harpster, Idaho. She worked as a mail carrier for many years in Utah, but her employment in Idaho was home health care.

Becky was an outdoor girl who loved playing ball and riding horses. She was an excellent student in school and an avid reader. Music was her passion; she sang and played the piano, flute, guitar, and more, and delighted in being part of the Idaho County Orchestra. One of her favorite past-times was singing and playing music with Charles, whom she loved so much and was most devoted to. She also enjoyed crafts, sewing, gardening and cooking healthy and tasty foods.

Innovative and resourceful, she could build and fix almost anything. Having developed building skills from her carpenter father, she built three houses, learning as she worked how to install solar power and a rocket stove for heat. The second house burned down, but she and Charles worked to build a new dream home.

Becky was preceded in death by her father, Arthur Wilcock. She is survived by her spouse Charles Olsen; former spouse Steven Roundy; mother Lenna Wilcock; four sisters: Gloria Taylor, Laura Earl, Carol Seegmiller, Lucile Brubaker; and five brothers: Steven, Daniel, Arlen, Jim, and Paul Wilcock. Becky's five daughters are: Teresa Wentworth, Kathrine Wilson, Cristi Cota, Jennifer Jenks, Pamela Jackson, and her four sons are: Doug, Shawn, Phillip, and Kyle Roundy. Her posterity also includes 14 grandchildren, all of whom she cherished dearly.

Her greatest attribute was her gentle, loving patient, cheerful disposition. We will always love and miss our dear Becky. Surely, God has called an angel home.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, December 7, at the Kamiah LDS Chapel on Valley View St. on Hwy 12. The Viewing will be from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m., followed by the funeral at 11:00. Burial will be at the Harpster Cemetery. Kelly Herring made her casket.
