Dolores "Becky" Sickles Keyser (age 77), of Hanover, passed from this life and into the arms of our loving Savior, Jesus Christ on Friday, March 27, after fighting a long battle with cancer. Becky was born and raised in Morgantown, WV (a place near and dear to her heart). Her life and faith exemplified Proverbs 31, and she cherished every minute as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and friend. Her grandchildren loved spending time with her and took delight in eating her cooking, especially their Mimi's famous "big table meals". Becky gave selflessly in every way, and when she was in good health, served as a nursery worker in the children's ministry and outreach events for her church families at both Covenant Evangelical Methodist Church (in Morgantown, where she was a charter member), and Winns Baptist Church (in Ashland). She enjoyed spending time toll painting and crafting with her husband, Bob. Becky was met in heaven by her daughter, Robin Lynn Keyser-Bargerstock, her brothers John (Carol), George "Pete" (Vicky), Warren "Buz" (Doris), and James Sickles (Jackie), and her parents Warren "Bud" and Birdie Sickles. She leaves behind her husband of 57 years, Gordon (Bob) Keyser, her daughter Lori Keyser-Marcus (John) and grandchildren Emma and Luke Marcus, and granddaughter Christian Bargerstock-Duckworth (Lenny) and great-grandsons Jackson and Jase Duckworth. Family will receive friends for visitation at Reid Chapel, Nelsen Funeral Home, 412 S. Washington Hwy, Ashland, VA 23005, on Monday, March 30 from 5-7pm. A service in celebration of her life, led by Pastor and dear family friend Jeff Chadwick, will follow at 7pm. Online condolences can be registered at www.nelsenashland.com.
