<em>Mennonite Weekly Review</em> obituary:

Mrs. John Becker, nee Eva B. Frey, was born on Jan. 24, 1880 in Marion County, Kan., one of a set of Triplets and passed to be with her Lord on Oct. 4, at the age of 80 years, eight months, and ten days.

She was baptized upon confession of her faith on May 29, 1898, in the Alexanderwohl church. In 1908 she and her husband joined the newly organized Tabor church as charter members. After moving to Newton in 1932, the family joined the First Mennonite church, where she was active in Sunday school and the women's sewing society.

Feb. 21, 1902, marked the beginning of more than 58 years of married life. To this marriage were born four children, including a son who died in infancy, Erna (Mrs. Dan Hein of Hillsboro, Kan.), Mary (Mrs. Hector Valencia of Bogota, Colombia), and Dr. Paul Becker of Denver, Colo. The family now includes four grandchildren.

She lived a rich life, always giving of herself in service to her family, her friends, her church, and her God. Of her it can be said that she worked as though she would live forever and lived as though she might die any minute. In addition to the family devotions, she always drew a daily verse from her box of promises.
