Becky (aka Ninny, Becky Boo) passed away unexpectedly at home Monday, Aug. 13, 2012. She was born in Utica, N.Y., April 23, 1963. She moved to Fort Myers with her family in 1972. Many of her happiest days were spent watching her daughters grow up as cheerleaders and softball players in local associations and her many trips to regional and national competitions for both. She spent multiple years as an assistant coach with both Little League softball teams and Pop Warner cheer and dance teams. She was looking forward to watching her grandchildren participate in the same local sports as her children did.
She is survived by her loving husband of 24 years, Kevin Gallagher; daughters, Pearlessa (Justin Gaeta), Heather (Armando Torres) and Brittany; step-son, Bob (Whitney) Lucas; grandchildren, Jayden, Brianna, Skylar, Adrianna, Davian, Morrigan and Bobby Dean Lucas III; mother, Etta Mariotti; father, Robert L. Barker; sisters, Pam (Roger) Rubio , Shelly (Jim Lawson) Ostrander, Deanna (Barry) Reider and Joe (Tammy) Mariotti; and several nieces and nephews; and her extended family in Missouri.
The services will be at 3 p.m., Friday, Aug. 17, at Coral Ridge Funeral Home, 1630 Pine Island Road, Cape Coral, with visitation starting at 2 p.m.
