Mildred Prince Becker
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Sad news comes yet once more this morning. Moshie Prince Becker, mother of Sidney Becker ('65) of VA, Tommy Becker of MD, Jon Becker of VA, and Andy Becker of VA, has passed away in Newport News at the age of 85.
From the Daily Press - 08/03/07:
Mildred (Moshie) Prince Becker
NEWPORT NEWS - Mildred (Moshie)
Prince Becker was born Feb. 4, 1922, one of nine children, to Isadore and
Annie Prince, in Mobile, Ala. She died Thursday, Aug. 2, 2007, at her home,
surrounded by her family. Moshie was preceded in death by her husband of 26
years, Milton S. Becker. She is survived by her four sons and
daughters-in-law, Sidney and Cynthia Becker of Newport News, Tommy and
Allene Becker of Silver Spring, Md., Jon and Susan Becker of Norfolk, and
Andy and Dee Dee Becker of Virginia Beach. She is also survived by 11
grandchildren, including Margaret and Adam Becker, Evelyn (Larry Schwartz),
Michael, Rebecca and Brian Becker, Amy, Katie, and Jennifer Becker and Lisa
Klinger (Zamir Klinger) and Brenna Becker; two great-grandchildren, Caleb
Becker-Schwartz and Leora Klinger; her sister, Ruth Lamensdorf; her
brothers, Marvin Prince and Arthur Prince; and many nieces and nephews.
Moshie showed her love for the Jewish community by volunteering her time
with Hadassah, Adath Jeshurun Synagogue Ladies Auxiliary and helping Russian
Jewish families assimilate into the local community. Her family and friends
will always remember her extraordinary love for her boys, her endearing
personality and quick wit. While she spent more than 60 years in Newport
News, she always carried a special place in her heart for her family and
friends in Mobile and never missed an opportunity to share a good story. Her
unconditional love provided a great source of strength for everyone she
touched. A funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Friday in Rodef Sholom Temple
by Rabbi Arthur Ruberg of Temple Beth El, Norfolk. Burial will follow in
Hebrew Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hadassah,
Rodef Sholom Temple, or the charity of your choice. Peninsula Funeral Home
is in charge of arrangements.

Love to all, Carol
