Becky Ann Driesel Hadlock passed away on Sunday February 18,2018 at her home in South Jordan Utah. Her family surrounded her. She had finally succumbed to Renal Cell Cancer that had ravaged her body for 10 plus years. \r\n She was born in Wendell, Idaho on November 7, 1950 to Donald Lee Driesel and LaRae Henderson. She was born into a loving family with three siblings. Roger was the oldest, followed by Galen and then her older sister Linda. They were a close family and enjoyed being together. Her father worked in the masonry business and later owned and operated Gifford-Driesel Masonry. His work took him out of town a lot, but he was always home on the weekends to be with his family. They enjoyed camping, fishing and boating together. \r\n She grew strong and intelligent and was very personable and kind to friends and schoolmates. She was a cheerleader and still remains close to this wonderful group. She was active in many school events and loved to play tennis. \r\n In the 8th grade, a new boy moved into the school district and met her in Earth Science Class. This meeting would change both of their lives forever. Steven Lisle Hadlock was the young man that seemed interested, but it would take Becky a few more years to draw his attention away from cars and sports. She was persistent.\r\n They married on February 1, 1969 and began their life together. They moved to Pocatello to begin school as Steve studied to be a Pharmacist. Seven years and five kids later, we finally graduated. Becky was Steve’s strength during those most challenging years. James, Brian, Kevin, Richard and Shari were all born during that time. We felt maybe our family was complete, but to our surprise, two more were added. Both Hillary and Jeffrey were premature and had several challenges. Through Priesthood blessings they were preserved.\r\n Becky had many hobbies that included, skiing, boating, camping, horses, scuba diving, motorcycles and travel. Two of her hobbies changed the lives of her family. Sewing and quilting, and family history occupied many of her hours. She fell in love with these activities when she was a teenager and was finally able to do much more after the children were grown.\r\n She loved family and that included extended family. Several times, we would have siblings and cousins live with us for a period of time. We even had the experience of having a foreign exchange student from Hungary live with us. Abel fit right in with our family. \r\n Becky was the ultimate Mother Bear. She would not only protect her children but would discipline them when needed. Some needed it more than others did. But they always knew of her unconditional love. \r\n In 2012 Becky and Steve werel called on an LDS Humanitarian Mission to the Quezon City, Philippines. This was the most amazing adventure. They got to be together 24/7 for the next 13 months. They were caught in the joy of helping the less fortunate. After 13 months the cancer came back and they needed to return.\r\n The time remaining in her life was spent in treatment after treatment until her frail body could no longer continue. We are so grateful to Dr. Scott Samuelson at Utah Cancer Specialists and his staff for their loving care. \r\nFuneral services will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the River Ridge 5th Ward Chapel, 10168 South 1100 West, South Jordan, Utah.
