Becky was such an influential person during my time at CMU. She took on the role of a second mother during my first year away from my family. Not only was she a wonderful support system but she also encouraged me to pursue my interest in journalism. Becky taught me to ask the hard questions, follow my gut and write with passion. Her loss has touched a number of her former coworkers at The Criterion Newspaper (in addition to the outpouring of support from her family, friends and community). She was so tough she seemed invincible but she also had the softest, kindest heart. Will be keeping her loved ones in my thoughts and will think of Becky often.

There were 3 Beckys in Durango in the class of 96. Im so sad to read about Becky Bakers passing. She was a gem, kind to all, always smiling. May she Rest In Peace and shine those smiles down on her family from above.
