Funeral Services for Rebecca “Becky” Lee (Sconyers) Clift were held at Lexington First Baptist Church on Monday, April 24, 2023. Burial services followed at Cement Cemetery.
Becky passed away on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, surrounded by her family.
Becky was born on August 1, 1938 in Cement, Okla. She was the second of three girls born to Lee Roy Sconyers and Dorothy Mae (Dean) Igo. She attended school in Cement and met her life partner there as well.
On July 28, 1955 Becky married her best friend and soul mate D.R. Clift. The couple made their home in Lexington in 1967. They have been active in the Lexington community and church for the past 54 years. Together the couple raised four terrific sons, who meant the world to Becky. Becky and D.R. were married 68 beautiful years.
She worked as a rural carrier for the U.S. Post Office for 27 years before she retired. Becky had a servant’s heart and was happy to serve others any way she could. She always went above and beyond serving those on her route, checking in on them and just loving them.
Becky lived her life by a motto that she wrote in her Bible, “You can have the whole world but give me Jesus”. Her life was a true reflection of Jesus. Everyone that knew her was blessed by her. Becky loved her family and friends with all her heart and cherished each moment spent with them. She enjoyed sharing her God-given talent of quilting with families and friends and made over 230 quilts in her lifetime. She will forever be remembered by family as making the absolute best homemade chicken and dumplings you ever tasted. Becky was a member of the First Baptist Church of Lexington for 54 years and enjoyed teaching Sunday School.
