Power (née Schoenbeck), Elizabeth S. “Becky”
December 3, 1950 – January 27, 2023
Elizabeth “Becky” Power, 72, of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away peacefully January 27, 2023, at home surrounded by her children and sister after an extended battle with cancer.
Becky was born on December 3, 1950, to Russell and Virginia (née Pepple) Schoenbeck, in St. Louis Missouri. After she graduated from Affton high school in 1969, she married the love of her life and husband of 37 years, Gerald C. Power (married July 10, 1970), and went on to have four children, Jennifer, Gerald Jr., Michael, and Timothy.
Becky is survived by her loving children Jennifer, Gerald Jr. (Deborah), Michael (Ellana), Timothy (Jessica). Forever cherished by her eleven grandchildren, Andrew, Emma, Hannah, Vita, Reagan, Lorna, Max, William, Abigail, Daschel, and Jack.
Becky will forever be remembered for her faith in God, her deep kindness and compassion, her loyalty to her family and friends, her boundless creativity, and her passion for connecting families with their past through genealogical research.
Keeping the memories of the happy childhood she so loved are her brothers and sister, Tom (Bev), Steve (Patty), Laurie (Dale), John (Reba), Jim (Dana). Further, her memory lives on in the extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.
Becky was predeceased by her father Russell, her mother Virginia, her sister Patricia, and her husband Gerald.
Family and friends of Becky are invited to attend a celebration of life memorial at 9 a.m. on Friday, 3 February, 2023, which will be held at Kutis Funeral Home, Affton Chapel, 10151 Gravois Rd., St. Louis, Missouri, 63123. Memorial service will be followed by a private interment at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, where she will rejoin Gerald in heavenly rest.
So sorry for everyone’s loss. She’s in a better place.
Our condolences and prayers to everyone. I am sure Becky is walking in heaven.
May you all find peace in her everlasting memory.
My sister Becky had a favorite saying that she quoted often during her lifetime: “We’re all just walking each other home.” She loved and helped so many people during her 72 years on this earth, and now she is well and truly home! I love you, Beck! Rest well, sweet sister!
May Becky Rest in Peace. She must have been a wonderful person. Loved by all and in death surrounded by all who loved her dearly.
Laurie and Family,
My condolences on your loss. Your
Words about Becky are a lovely remembrance of her beautiful soul.
Love and prayers.
