Rebecca “Becky” Marie Baca, 73, of Clovis NM, was unexpectedly called home by God, at her home in Clovis, NM on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
Services at the Steed Todd Chapel will be held at 2:00PM, on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at Steed-Todd Funeral Home (800 E. Manana Blvd. in Clovis, NM).
Becky was born in Puerta de Luna, NM to Faustin Lujan and Lucy Luna Lujan on November 7, 1946. She was a graduate of Clovis High School in Clovis, NM. Becky married her adoring husband, Cosme Baca Jr. in Clovis, NM. Becky was a homemaker of many talents and a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and “mom” to all the neighboring kids. Becky never knew a stranger; she was the kind of person that would sit next to you, and before departing, she would know your story. She always expressed interest in others. Her memory was immaculate, and she remembered everything and everyone. Becky was a great storyteller and would share great memories and lots of laughter with both family members and strangers. Becky was known for her enthusiasm for garage sales, and above all, Becky loved her grandchildren immensely: Tyler Williams, Zachary Aragon, Izaiah Aragon, David Baca, Dominica Sandoval and Destinie Dominguez. She also loved and was always proud of her children. Becky enjoyed sewing, cooking, watching and reading crime shows and books, and making quilts. Becky was well-known in the neighborhood for her delicious homemade tortillas and sopapillas. Becky was the person that everyone went to for life advice and she always had wisdom to share. Becky enjoyed listening to her favorite musical artists, Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline.
Becky is preceded in death by her father, Faustin Lujan; her mother, Lucy Luna Lujan; her beloved husband of 30 years, Cosme Baca Jr.; and her beloved fur baby, “Daisy.”
Becky is survived by her daughter, Carolyn (Todd) Moore of Clovis, NM; son, Anthony Baca of Clovis, NM; son, Jimmy (Paula) Baca of Amarillo, TX; and daughter, Sarah Baca (Frankie Dominguez) of Clovis, NM; brothers, Bobby Lujan of Albuquerque, NM; Dario Lujan of Portales, NM; Thomas Lujan of Santa Fe, NM; and sisters, Nora Garcia of Albuquerque, NM; Helen Rando of Clovis NM; and Marianna Baca of Portales, NM. She is also survived by six grandchildren: Tyler Williams, Zachary Aragon, Izaiah Aragon, David Baca, Dominica Sandoval and Destinie Dominguez; and her little chihuahua, “Angel.” She will also be missed by her many friends.
