Becky was born Rebecca Ivis Regan in Colquitt, Georgia on March 8, 1945. She graduated from Miller County High School in 1963. Rebecca “Becky” Regan Murkerson was an amazing Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, and soon-to-be great-grandmother. She met the love of her life, Lawson Murkerson in the 8th grade and was his faithful, loving, devoted wife for 57 years. Raised in Colquitt, Georgia as the only girl in a family of five boys, she never failed to look elegant and beautiful in everything she did. First and foremost, a Christian wife and mother, she managed to work outside the home as well, in banking, office administration, and retail during her professional career. Her unwavering resilience and hard work ethic could not be matched. She called any kind of work her “therapy”, especially working in her yards with the greenest thumb ever. She was an artist in the truest form, making beautiful creations out of nothing, whether decorations or her famous handmade birthday cards for the grandchildren. She was a talented seamstress and cook. She could do anything she set her mind to. She raised two daughters and taught them how to work hard, love their families and most importantly love Jesus. Her pride and joy were her children and grandchildren and family photos were her favorite artwork. If you talked to Becky, you heard about her grandchildren and what they were doing. If you heard her pray, you heard her pray for her grandchildren and anyone else who needed uplifting. She was an active member of Donalsonville Church of the Nazarene, a member of the Ladies Bible Study, and lived her faith every day. Each morning she started her day with the Lord, reading her Bible usually outside on the porch watching the birds (her favorites were red birds and blue jays) or in her favorite chair in the quiet of early morning. She continued her day by taking care of her husband, making sure he had everything he needed. She adored him and he was her soulmate. She was a warrior for the Lord and would want everyone to know Jesus like she did. He was her strength and the foundation of her life. Her Heavenly Father knew her purpose on earth was fulfilled and it was time for her to rest and delight in His loving arms. She lived her legacy with dedication and love for her Savior in everything she did.
