Amesbury - On the evening of November 13, Becky [Rebecca Ellen Martin] Irving passed away at the Merrimac Valley Nursing Home in Amesbury, Mass., where she had in care since March. Her husband, Ronald, her son, Mark and her daughter, Jill, visited her every day, and they were pleased by the excellent care that she received at the nursing home. She is succeeded by her brother, Donald Martin of Plymouth, Vt. and her brothers, Leon and William, of Florida. She was preceded in death by several years, by her brother, Ronald. Becky was born on May 26, 1939, on a farm near Bridgewater Corners, Vt, where she attended grammar school. She graduated as class valedictorian from Woodstock High School in 1987 and attended American International College on a scholarship. It was there that she met her husband, Ronald Irving, and they were married at a Universalist Chapel in Springfield on graduation weekend in 1959. They removed to Boston, where Becky completed a Bachelor of Arts degree and served as faculty secretary at Boston University. The couple subsequently lived in Philadelphia for five years, Stonybrook, Long Island for seven years, five years in Villa Park, Illinois, seven years in Newburyport, Mass. and twenty years in Amesbury. Their union was a blessing for both of them. The family wishes to complement the Merrimac Valley Nursing Home for the excellent care that Becky received while she was there.
