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.

    Miss you Kitty. You will always be in my thoughts & my heart. The Becker Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Kitty was an amazing person, who brought so much joy & laughter to so many. ( Not to mention extra weight/ pounds with her delicious desserts.) She always thought of others & loved sharing photos & stories of her wonderful and growing family. Her family meant everything to her. She loved you all very much.

    I can’t do that was not a part of Kitty’s vocabulary. She was one of the most honest outgoing person I have ever met. She worked as long as she was needed and any hours that need covered. She would share her thoughts and feelings with you like a second mother. Her sugar cinnamon pecans were to die for and always gave bags of it at Christmas. I feel it was a privilege and an honor to know someone like her in my lifetime whose memory will never go away. Rest now Kitty enjoy your fruits of labor and love we will miss you.
