REBECCA "BECKY"'s Story
Rebecca "Becky" Hodges Hunter died peacefully on April 10, 2017 at the age of 90.
Becky was preceded in death by her husband, Howard Hunter and also by her first husband, Alton Oliver "Buddy" Hodges. She is survived by her daughters Starr Sheppard (Ben), Hollye McDonel (Billy) and other extended family members.
Being a true southern lady, she lived life with a flair for the dramatic. Becky loved beautiful clothes and entertaining, hosting numerous events including fish fries, spaghetti dinners, and Kentucky Derby parties.
She left detailed instructions to her girls to celebrate her life. Following her wishes, there will not be a service, but well-wishers are encouraged to write a note of farewell on a champagne bottle and drink it in her honor. She will be laid to rest at Westview Cemetery in Milledgeville with Buddy.
Her beloved pets and all the animals she helped rescue were waiting for her at the Rainbow Bridge. Memorial gifts may be made to Companion Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 1209, Madison, GA 30650 or the Morgan County Humane Society, 1170 Fairground Road, Madison, GA 30650
