Eleanor M Becker

(Mar 11, 1925 to Oct 19, 2011)

Eleanor knew that it is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence. Although she was quiet and reserved, she was always heard when the time was right. When it came to praising the Lord her voice was always loud and clear while singing with the church choir at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, of which she was a charter member. When the numbers lined up right she’d be the first to yell out “Bingo”. Due to her love of numbers, she was an office manager/bookkeeper at several local businesses. When at home in Burlington she was content to enjoy a book, or watch an old Jeannette MacDonald and Nelson Eddie movie, or even some auto racing. But her home was by no means sequestered. She was known to open her doors to anyone in her family in their time of need. Over the years she became the caregiver for several family members. This didn’t mean that she walled herself up at home. Her ongoing desire for self-improvement saw her graduating from computer school at the age of 75. rnAs a young woman, while working in a furniture store in Burlington, she met a customer, John Becker, Sr., who soon had her hand in marriage. Before his passing in 1992, their 48 year marriage was blessed by their two sons: John, Jr. (Denice) of Riverside and grandson Robert Becker; and Donald of Burlington and granddaughter Tammi Nestore and four great-granddaughters.rnCome celebrate Eleanor’s 86 wonderful years (March 11, 1925-October 19, 2011) Saturday 12 PM at Monument Cemetery, Beverly. In lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made to Lutheran Care Moorestown, St. Luke Chapel, 255 East Main St. Moorestown, NJ 08057.rn

    My deepest sympathies to the Becker Family. I have very fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Becker as my parents, Helen and Lee Horoff were also charter members & choir members at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and I grew up in that wonderful church family.
