Obituary

Rebecca “Becky” Duncan Beard, born December 15, 1953, passed away Tuesday, May 5, 2020, peacefully in her home. A visitation will be held at Independence Methodist Cemetery in Morton, MS from 3:15PM until 4:00 PM on Thursday May 7, 2020 with a graveside service to follow. Pastor Sheila Cumbest will officiate.
Becky was born December 15, 1953, and resided in Morton, MS until her time of death. She was a member of the Morton High School graduating class of 1971, and continued her education at East Central Junior College. Becky served as the Administrative Assistant for the Mississippi Poultry Association for more than 30 years. She worked hard to manage their office, as well as continued to raise funds for the association and their annual events. She was very detail oriented and ensured that everything was perfect for the members of the association. Mark Leggett, President of the Mississippi Poultry Association writes, “Whatever she did, she made each person feel as if they were family. Her contacts across the poultry industry were extensive and spanned throughout generations. She worked with founders of many poultry companies down to the most recent college students graduating in Poultry Science. Becky’s enthusiasm, hard work, and her concern for all MPA employees and members will leave a void that cannot be filled. “Throughout her life, Becky never met a stranger. If you would listen, she would share her life with you. That is part of what made her special. She was full of love and laughter, and always knew how to lighten the mood with her many “-isms” and songs that she could make up on the fly. She always knew how to help you walk taller, while keeping you grounded. She is loved and will be missed by many. Becky is preceded in death by her father, Amos Frank Duncan, her mother, Bobbye Ruth Livingston Duncan, and her brother Vernon Elwin Crotwell.
Becky is survived by her husband, Marshall Cooper Beard; her children, Jessica Burkes (Lamar),
Jerami Earls (Stan), and Duncan Beard (Dusty); her grandchildren, Evan Derrick, Alexandria
Warren, Curt Burkes, AllyTyce Earls, and Benjamin Beard; and an extensive family comprising of many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many, many friends.

Pallbearers are Steven Crotwell, Stan Crotwell, Matt Bell, Scott Bell, Dan Beard, and Bill Beard. Honorary Pallbearers are the 1971 Morton High School classmates

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Independence United Methodist Church Cemetery Fund.

Becky was my niece. I did not live in Mississippi from 1954 until 1995 so I got all my news from my mother (her grandmother). Grandma Duncan always loved for Becky and family to come visit. Grandma was a good story teller and told me several times that Becky followed in her steps of good story telling. I found this to be true when my sister Sarah died about four years ago. Becky and I started messaging on Facebook and we had some mighty long conversations. I told her a lot about her dad, my brother Frank. He passed away in his forties (I am thinking) so Becky did not get a lot of time with him. He was oh so handsome and a real hard worker and an excellent father and step-father according to my Mother. Grandpa Duncan surely did love this granddaughter. She had a lively spirit, a Christian philosophy of loving your neighbors, etc. She had great communication skills as I found out when we were messaging for hours at a time. She will be among a lots of her relatives in Heaven and God will embrace her full force. Becky, hear me well. I will be there one day and we will pick up where we left off in May 2020. Happy Mother's Day in Heaven to you, dear niece of mine.

Cooper, Duncan and all who loved Becky. I was so shocked to hear of Becky’s passing. She has always been larger than life and so full of laughter and enthusiasm. It’s hard to picture this world without her. Brad felt an immediate connection to Becky and I know she felt the same. Cooper and family, know that you are loved and not alone in your grief. Gretchen
