I knew the Lippincott family well. I remember Becky as one of those cute little girls, but then all the Lippencott girls were cute. I was a close friend of her older brother, Robert. My sympathy goes out to the entire family.

My sincerest condolences on your loss.

I have fond memories of Becky from high school and reunions. Becky carried on her wonderful warm and giving personality, steadfast kindness and creative flair for life. True to herself and generous to others.

Peaceful comfort and blessing in the journey forward.

Thinking of you and your family. Becky was my hair dresser when I was younger. She had an incredible smile and laugh. She treated everyone, including children, as important when they were in the chair. She cared about us and always shared a laugh and smile. You could tell the love she had and she will be greatly missed.

Penny O'Brien from Canandaigua, NY on Sep. 1, 2023

Fly high Beck! You were one of a kind. Always had a smile on her face, could only chat for a minute and then she was off again. I will never forget our homerooms together at Whitman, you always saved me a seat since I could never make it before the bell. You will be missed, but until we meet again keep watch over your kids and family. They were always most important to you.
