Becky O'Brien

June 15, 1953 — May 25, 2015

Memorial services for Becky OBrien 61 of Fort Dodge will be Friday May 29, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Marks Episcopal Church, Fort Dodge, Iowa.  Visitation will be Friday 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Historic Bruce Funeral Home.  Rebecca Jill OBrien passed away at her home on May 25, 2015 as a result of a sudden illness. 

Becky was born on June 15, 1953.  She was raised on a farm outside of Callender, Iowa.  She attended and graduated from Prairie High School in 1971 and later from Buena Vista University with her bachelors degree.

She spent most of her work years as a sales representative and manager for various local businesses in Fort Dodge including KWMT/KKEZ and The Fort Dodge Messenger.

Becky had varied interests and loved to “play” in her garden, spend time with her beloved friends, taking cruises and traveling to visit family and friends.  Becky had a zest for life and loved being in the outdoors, as she was truly an Iowa farm girl at heart.  She was a wonderful homemaker, an amazing cook and the heart and soul of our home.  Becky was the most caring, loving and compassionate spouse, mother and friend.

She is loved and will be sorely missed.  She is survived by the love of her life Paul Gentile, sons Christopher and Ryan (Jenna), grandsons Owen OBrien and Joseph OBrien, brother Scott  Johnson , sister Lisa Peterson (Mike) and nephews Parker Peterson (Robin) and Spencer Peterson and cousins.  She was preceded in death by her parents Madeline and Kenneth Johnson, brother Ken Johnson Jr., grandparents: Ed and Amelia Johnson, Ralph and Harriet Fairman.

Rest in Peace, forever loved and in our hearts.
