Kathleen “Kitty” M. Becker (nee Hamlin), of Ballwin, MO, walked into heaven on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at the age of 84, after a courageous battle with cancer and covid-19. Beloved wife of the late Clifford William Becker; cherished daughter of the late Howard Edward and Mayme Hamlin. Devoted mother of Connie (Jim) Leonardelli, Mark (Sally) Becker, and Scott (Colleen) Becker; loving grandmother of Kirk (Marisa) Leonardelli, Eric Leonardelli, Kyle (Brittany) Leonardelli, Craig Becker, Cameron Becker, Brooks (Julie) Becker, Josh (Shannon) Becker, Brittany Becker, and Jennifer Becker; treasured great-grandmother of Cora, Kate, Ethan, Alanna, Sage, Ryan, Scarlett, Ruby, Matthew, and Ellie; dear sister of Lorraine (Robert) Lebaube and the late Ruby (Donald) Neuhaus.
Kitty was the strongest and fiercest loving soul on this side and now on that side of heaven. She was not given an easy life, but refused to accept the hand she was dealt. Kitty overcame obstacles that others knew as impossible, she will always be known as a fighter. She enjoyed cooking, travelling and singing, but most importantly, spending time with her family. Kitty was dearly loved, admired, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
It gives us great joy to know that you finally were able to stand up out of that chair, that has held you for so many decades and walk through the gates of heaven. Where you once again will laugh and make jokes, drink and be merry.
Memorials may be made in Kitty's name to Lutheran Senior Services.
