REBECCA “BECKY” (WESTOVER) CHAMPNEY-MERCHANT
HARDWICK – On the evening of March 14, with her favorite music playing and holding the hands of her sister, Becky entered into her new journey. She was the oldest of five daughters born to the late Carlton and Corrine (Tatro) Westover. She spent her life enjoying caring for her younger sisters, her nephews, and most enjoyably, her great-nieces and -nephews.
She graduated from Lamoille Union High School in 1971 and started her career in the medical field. She worked at numerous hospitals and nursing homes in Vermont, New Hampshire and Florida. She returned to small town life when she retired in Hardwick.
She is survived by her sister Prudence Daniels-Aldrich, brother-in-law John Allen, nephews Brian, James, Shawn, Alex, Howard Jr. and Joseph, five great-nephews and three great-nieces, many cousins including her beloved Janice Lafountain, Sherry Eldred Mcclellan, and Judy Morse. She was predeceased by her husband, Frank, two sisters, Lisa Westover and Katherine Westover Allen, and brother-in-law, Howard Daniels Sr.
Becky requested there were to be no calling hours. A combined Celebration of Life for Becky and Kathy will take place in June. In lieu of flowers please donate to your favorite no-kill shelter.
