Becky Grauman

Rebecca Jo “Becky” Grauman, 64, passed Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada, after a valiant battle with cancer. She was born Jan. 8, 1952, in Ennis, Montana, to Wayne Lee and Floral Judy Robison. On Aug. 3, 1974, she married David Grauman in McAllister, Montana.

Becky grew up on ranches in Montana and British Columbia. She finished her high school education in Canada, then earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Montana State University in Bozeman. She taught for a few years in Harrison and Ennis, Montana, before starting her family. In August of 1991, the family moved to Moapa Valley where Becky resumed her teaching career at Ute V. Perkins Elementary. She enjoyed seeing her students progress through high school and beyond. Becky loved quilting, making jams, jellies, honey fudge and her specialty, sourdough bread. Her favorite thing about retirement was spending time with her daughters and granddaughters. Her warm and loving personality was cherished by her students, friends and family. The light that was Becky has been extinguished, but the glow of love and life will shine brightly through all of those she has touched. She will be missed.

Survivors include her sweetheart, David of Logandale, Nevada; two daughters: Megan (Eric) Beagley of San Tan Valley, Arizona; Karlin (Jimmy) Grinnell of Las Vegas, Nevada; five granddaughters: Ainsley, Ginny, Karmen, Liv and Scarlett; four sisters: Dixie (James) Marosok of Sheridan, Wyoming; Jerry (David) Wing of McAllister, Montana; Patricia (Gary) Dusenberry of Bellevue, Washington and Vicki (Curtiss) McNally of Grand Forks, B.C., Canada, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and special sister friends.
