Obituary of Becky Sue Boothe

Becky Sue (Steck) Boothe, 68, of Pottstown, PA, formerly of Union County, OH, passed away on December 2, 2022, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Born in Columbus, OH, on January 14, 1954, Becky was the daughter of the late Virgil and Ruby (Wilson) Steck.


Becky graduated from North Union High School in Richwood, OH, in 1972, worked for 30 years as a correctional officer at Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville, OH, and retired in 2013. She was a woman of strong faith and attended New Hanover United Methodist Church in Gilbertsville, PA. In her spare time, she enjoyed gardening, spending time outside, viewing birds in her backyard, reading, and watching movies. She also loved elephants! Although her hobbies were important, Becky’s greatest enjoyment came from spending time with her family whom she loved and cared for deeply. 


Becky is lovingly remembered by her son and daughter-in-law, Gabriel & Christal Gray; her daughter and son-in-law, Amy & Jonathon Hartley; her grandchildren, Tesla, Cody, Taylor, Jessica, and Jacob; her great-grandchildren, Kenton, Eevee, Joey, Brayden, Lexie, and Chloe; the father of her children, Steve Gray; her sisters, Noreen Loar and Sandy Faulhaber; and many other extended family and friends who will miss Becky dearly.


A graveside service will take place at a later date at Hopewell Cemetery, 12225 Hopewell Rd., Marysville, OH 43040. A Celebration of Life will follow at a location to be determined. Please check back on Becky’s memorial page for updated service details.
