Becky Wages was the most kind and generous woman ever to live.  She was born in Roanoke, VA on March 15, 1959.  She was a girl scout, participated in church choir at Windsor Hills UMC.  She was a poet, as she wrote an amazing poem for her younger brother, Bobby, who passed when he was very young.  She moved to Tucker, GA in 1975 where she attended and graduated from Tucker High School in 1976.  Her faith in Christ strongly affected everyone around her.  She was the 4th child of six of her parents, Woody and Betty Angle.  Her brothers and sisters consist of Mary K, Suzie, Jimmy, Sonny and her deceased brother, Bobby.  Her laugh was contagious.  Becky is survived by her husband, Johnnie; her daughter, Ashley; her son, Wayne; and her beautiful granddaughter, Skyleigh.  Family meant the world to her and she would have given her right arm for anyone.  Becky had the most amazing smile.  It lit up every room she walked into.  She worked for Gwinnett County Schools for over 15 years, starting out in the cafeteria and working her way up to a para-professional position working with special needs children (EBD) which she loved dearly.  She truly devoted her career to impacting just one child’s life, which she did many, many times.  Many of the children that were in her classes called her daily just to say thank you.  We thank the Lord for allowing us to spend time with one of His most precious angels, Becky Wages.  Becky loved seafood so much she could think about eating it and taste it in her mouth as if it was right there in front of her at that very moment.  She was very talented on the guitar.  Becky loved to garden and definitely held the power of a green thumb.  She could bring any plant back to life like it was magic.  She loved to sing.  Becky was the most amazing cook.  She could put a 5 star meal together out of nothing.  She adored her granddaughter, Skyleigh, and her granddaughter adored her.  She was the best mom any child could ask for.  She cared about her kids so much.  She always put the feelings of others before her own.  She was a huge baseball fan for her son, Wayne.  She was a very talented artist.  When she wrote her R’s, no matter if it was meant to be a lower case or an upper case, she always capitalized them.  Becky was loved by many people and she will always have an impact on every single person that she came in contact with.  Becky was an angel living on earth waiting to go live in the sky with our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.  She will NEVER be forgotten, and she will be dearly missed.  We love you Becky!!!!

  3. So very sorry for your loss Ashley. Hope you can find peace amongst all the sadness! Losing a loved one is so very hard, but when it’s your mom that is even harder. Be strong and think about the good times!

  4. Ashley there’s no words that will help you right now. Your mother was one of the sweetest spirits I have ever crossed paths with. You were and will always be her baby girl. Hold on tight to that love Ashley and be strong for your own daughter
    Rest in Peace Ms. Becky

  5. Mrs. Wages was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend whose presence will be sorely missed! I have faith that she is resting in peace….Ashley! I am praying your strength and you have my support.

  6. I am going to miss you , Becky. From the first time I met you when I was around 12, you accepted me like I was your own! Whenever we’d be next door or playing outside sometimes we could smell your cooking. You taught me how to make eggplant parmesan. And i loved it even thought i didn’t even like eggplants 🙂 You would tell me that I was welcome ANY time into your home and always left the door open for us to “come on in”. I could talk to you about anything. You were always so sweet and smiling! I love you Becky. Thank you for being such a special part of my life.

  7. Becky, you touched so many lives during your time with us. You will never be forgotten and your legacy will live on, through your children and grandchild. Ashley, Wayne, and Johnnie are lucky to have you in their lives. If you all need anything, please know I an keeping you all in ny prayers. Prayers that you all stay strong and find out the reason for this event. God bless you all.

  8. Becky, you were such a dear, loving person. You are a part of my heart and Mom and Dad’s, too. It is still unimaginable to me that you are gone. Your children are missing you so and for good reason. You loved them and they always knew that. Your love for helping others you shared with so many. To say you’ll be missed is an understatement. I already miss you. I don’t know what will become of Johnnie without you there to help and support and love him! In short, you were here for such a brief time and only the Lord knows why he needed you, but you will be missed here on earth. You were more a sister than a sister-in-law to me. I love you, Becky!

  9. Hmmm. Ms. Becky, Ms. Becky…”Can we go to Ms. Becky’s house Dad?” I’m not sure how many times I had heard that from my children when we had the good fortune of being the neighbors of the Wages for many years…and I do not mean weekly, my boys asked to go visit the Wages (and eat, …and sleep, …and play…and eat some more) on a daily basis…perhaps more if there could be such a thing. Dylan and Presley love you so…as do I. I don’t think I ever thanked you and Johnnie enough for being so hospitable to them…I will miss our impromptu chats that accompanied an impromptu visit followed by an impromptu libation…or two. A kinder soul I have yet to meet. You will be sorely missed…a toast to you I shall raise a glass. Bless you dear Becky…and bless your family. “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” – Albert Pike

  10. My Dearest Friend Becky,

    We have been best friends for so many years and shared so many memories, had soooo much much fun. I don’t know what I am going to do without you. I do know that you are at peace and with loving family and friends. Our children and families grew up together and shared so many special (and I do mean special) times together that will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my sweet friend ( sister by heart).

    Love you always.
    Michelle Harris

  11. Ashley,
    There are no words to express my sadness, I love your mom very much. I miss her and I appreciate all the times she was there for me. My heart goes out to you, Skyleigh and your family. I am here for you always and I am grateful for the time I had with Becky. You are the strongest person I know and I know that God will see you through this. I know Becky is with the angels. Ashley I am here for you and Skyleigh and I love you both like you are family. You and I have shared so many memories together and you are such a huge part of my life. I don’t know why God wanted your mom with Him, but I have faith that you will get through this. May you rest in peace, Becky. You are missed by all who knew you.

    All my love,
    Courtney McClure

  12. Becky you left us way to soon! You will be missed! My heart is breaking for your family!! Please know that I will be there for them if they need anything. I will miss you this summer as my garden grows. I loved sharing my crops, flowers and seedlings with you. You were funny and taught me this thing that we never said thank you for this things we shared (you didn’t want to jinx it) but we always knew that we were thankful. As my gardenia’s begin to bloom this year I will think of you and make a special vase for you!!

  13. I am so sad to hear about Becky. I attended many a baseball game watching my son Sean play with Wayne. Becky loved that boy with all her heart and was so proud of him. Rest in peace my friend. You are now at home in the arms of our Saviour!

  14. I met Becky when I was about 16 years old. I was friends with her neighbor jennifer. Ashley and I went to school together. For a few summers we were all really close. Becky was always had a warming smile that was instantly calming. She was always nice to me and greeted me by my first name. I wish I could have spent more time with her. But the me memories I do have will never be forgotten. Thank you for accepting who I am and you will be forever in my heart. And Ashley I hope you find the peace your heart needs in the time of loss. I’ll see you later today.

  15. Words can not express the sorrow I feel for your family in their loss.
    Becky, you are such a beautiful soul and I know you will always be there looking after and guiding those that love you.
    I will cherish the memories of all the good times we had.
    May you rest in peace my dear friend.
    God Bless you

  16. My son Caden is on the Georgia State baseball team with Wayne. We are so sorry for your loss. I was looking forward to getting to know Becky this season in the baseball stands. In reading the comments about her and the kind of woman she was I am so sad that I have missed the chance to know her. Our prayers are with your family and especially with Wayne. I know that Caden and the team will be there for him.

  17. jenny – It’s been way too long since i’ve been on here! As usual, you are amazing and Ava and Jake are faumos!!! hahaha Beautiful, Julie. xoxo

  18. Hey mom–I was just thinking about you today and wanted to write you a little note. I miss you so much. I went through all of the Christmas boxes the other day and had to put up all of the stuff we used to put up together by myself with Skyleigh. I can’t even begin to imagine what the first Christmas is going to be like without you. You were my rock, my mom. I wish I would have appreciated our time together more. Lord knows I never thought I would lose you. You’re mom ! Nothing can hurt you ! Well I learned too quick all too soon that that is definitely not the case. You are such a precious woman and I would give anything for you to be with me right now by my side laughing and joking with me, but especially to hold me. I love you mom and I will never ever ever forget you and will always live in your memory like you are right by my side. I love you Becky Wages. 🙁

  19. Hey Aunt Becky,
    Thought of you all day today. It was 1 year ago today you departed from us forever. I will always think of you especially the great times we had over at grandma and grandpas. Those days I truely miss. especially where our families were together and happy. I will always be your “tutty fruity”. I will never forget that. Another thing that is hard for me is that my wedding is in 4 months. I will have something for you on that day to celebrate you and wishing you were there to see me. I love you forever and always. Have a wonder new life. I hope you look down on us from time to time because I sure do look up. I love you.

  20. Ashley
    I did not realize Becky had passed away. My wife Lisa and I got to know your parents very well in the Atlanta Chapter of the ECU Pirate Club. Becky was an awesome person with a terrific personality.
    I enjoyed the friendship we shared with Becky and Johnnie
    My deepest sympathy.
    Joey and Lisa Bradshaw
