As a little girl, Becky enjoyed going to the beach and making sand castles. She liked to play with her Barbie dolls and made her little brothers Robert and Ryan play with her. She absolutely loved going to Disneyland and on road trips.

When she was 13 years old, she and her family moved to Springfield, Illinois. While living there, she enjoyed babysitting and going to church and Young Womens. When she was 16, the family moved to Utah. She made many friends during this time in her life. She soon got her first job working at Target as a cashier. She enjoyed this job because she got to meet so many new people everyday.

For years she would pray to have little sisters and her prayers were finally answered. Her mom remarried in 2000 and the family was blessed with three more children. Two of them were the little sisters she had always wanted. Becky had such a strong love for all of her family. She would do whatever she could to help them and let them know of her love. She was always generous with her time and talents.

She enjoyed cooking for her family, trying new recipes, scrapbooking, trying out new hairstyles on her little sisters, reading, playing with her pets, and genealogy.

In 2007 she moved to Casper, Wyoming with her family. While in Wyoming, she enjoyed babysitting for family and friends. She loved the children she babysat as if they were her own. She loved watching movies and having Sunday dinners and game nights with her family. She would always try to convince everyone to play Scattergories, and everyone would concede.

Becky enjoyed making hairbows and painting. She was always supportive of her family. She never missed concerts, dance recitals, or awards ceremonies. Her family knew that they would always see Becky’s smiling face in the audience. Becky rescued a dog named Sophie, and they soon became inseparable. Becky would take Sophie everywhere she would go.

Becky was also an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where she held many callings. She loved going to church, but most of all she loved her Heavenly Father. Becky always lived her life in a way that would make her Heavenly Father proud.

Becky was a christlike person. She was kind, generous, faithful, loving, and had such a sweet spirit. She would never judge or speak badly of anyone. Becky was an amazing example to all she came in contact with.

She is greatly missed and loved by all who knew her. She has made an amazing impact on her family and will always be remembered fondly.

After a valiant battle with Covid and its complications, Becky left this world on December 7th, 2020. She was surrounded by her family as she left this world.

Becky (Dewell) Anderson: December 7, 1953 ~ December 11, 2020 (age 67)

The Life and Times of Rebecca Jean Anderson 

Rebecca “Becky” Jean Dewell was born the second child (first daughter) of four kids to Herb and Corrine May Dewell on December 7th, 1953 at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper Wyoming.

 She was a vibrant and strong-willed child who showed quickly that there was nothing she couldn’t do.  As she grew up, she attended grade school, intermediate school, and high school in Casper.  She made many lifelong friends in those school years who she remained close to throughout her life.

 In 1970, Becky met the man who would later become her husband and partner, Jack Roy Anderson.  This started a relationship of friendship and adventure for the duo. 

 In the fall of 1974, the pair welcomed the first of their 2 children, Miranda Rochelle Anderson (Mirf) 

 Becky and Jack decided to make things official on July 21, 1979, when they got married at The Little Chapel of the West in Las Vegas.  This put the official seal on their marriage, but that was only a formality for them as they were already committed to each other and their family. 

 1982 was the year that they welcomed their second daughter Afton Raye Anderson (Sparky) to the planet. 

 The family of four were a wild and adventurous bunch led by Jack and corralled by Becky.  Becky was a soul without boundaries and longed to do the things she was told she could not do.   In that same defiant spirit, she become a successful welder at Wotco in Casper.  She worked on everything from dump truck beds to dragline and shovel buckets, all the while pulling double harness with her husband and keeping the family satisfied and on point.

She left life at Wotco and started a long career in service at the Loaf N Jug store #103 in Paradise Valley where she continued to meet friends who would become as close as family. 

 In 2005 Jack went on to prepare a place in heaven and Becky stayed here to keep her daughters and grandchildren in line. 

 Becky’s passion first and foremost was her children and grand children, followed by her brothers and sister and nieces and nephews a close second.  Her worldly passion was her gardens.  Through the many years she grew a plethora of flora and fauna that was nothing short of magnificent. 

Her light and passion were well instilled in her daughters Miranda and Afton, and in her grandchildren Bryston (Miranda)-18 y/o, Xannah (Miranda)-11 y/o, Maddie (Afton)-10 y/o, Oaklend (Miranda)-9 y/o, Joplyn (Miranda)-7 y/o, Alice (Afton)-7 y/o and her two extremely handsome and funny not to mention charismatic son in laws.    The closeness of her daughters and grandchildren to her is evident daily and the passion for life and her adventurous soul is alive and well in all of them. 

 Becky made sure she left nothing undone in life and was blessed to unite on October 26, 2019, with a child she gave up for adoption in her younger years.  The fact that the child grew into a great person and was well loved by family gave her great peace and happiness and that in itself was a blessing and her heart swelled even more with pride in her family. 

 On December 11, 2020 at 1 am as the snow gently began to kiss the ground Becky took Jacks hand to spend eternity together. 

 Becky is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Jim and her beloved husband Jackie Roy. 

 Rebecca Jean Anderson is survived by her younger sister Rickie Hodgden (Foote) of Enid Oklahoma and her baby brother Mike Dewell (Debbie) of Casper Wyoming. Daughters Miranda Jennings (Allen) of Glenrock and Afton Jennings (Luke) of Casper.  Grandchildren Bryston Jennings (Miranda), Xannah Jennings (Miranda), Maddie Jennings (Afton), Oaklend Jennings (Miranda), Joplyn Jennings (Miranda) and Alice Jennings (Afton) and many nieces and nephews scattered all around the world. 

 Even death couldn’t extinguish Beckys untamed soul and passion for life as she chose to be a donor.  She blessed others with the gift of sight with eyes that saw lifetime of adventure in a different light.  In addition, she was able to donate tissue and bone to help those who need it most. Truly a gesture and testament of how she lived!

 Her family and friends near and far, want her to know they love her to the moon and back!  Rest easy sweet Christmas angel. 

 A viewing for Becky’s friends and family is set for Wednesday, December 16th from 4-5 pm at Bustards funeral home in Casper.  In addition, a celebration of life is being planned for late spring/early summer when we can all be together outside and the flowers are in bloom.
