Lorell Becker - Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

October 12, 1931 - December 25, 2014

Lorell Anderson Becker. Oh, what a life! At this time of gifts, and giving thanks, we thank God for the life of Lorell A. Becker. She was a blessing to all who knew her. She left us to be with Jesus on the night we celebrated his birth. Lorell was born on October 12, 1931 in Minneapolis. She is welcomed to heaven by her mother and father, Melvina and Manley Anderson, her mother and father-in-law, Florence and Dale H. Becker, as well as her brothers, Dennis, Marvin and Adrian and her sister, Arlene (Tiny) Christian and her brother and sister-in-law, Claude and Betty Nelson. Saying goodbye to her earthly presence and celebrating her resurrection is her extraordinary husband of over 63 years, Dale (Dick) Becker, her three children, Terry, Tim and Tom and her three beautiful daughters-in-law, Laura, Deanne and Janet. She adored and was so very proud or her nine grandchildren, Adam, Mary, Lee, John, Molly, Max, Charlie, Luke and Sam. She is also survived by sisters-in-law, Beverly and Marion Anderson and brother and sister-in-law, Dennis and Dorothy Becker, as well as many nephews and nieces and dear friends, some since childhood. Lorell had many various jobs in her youth until marrying Dick on August 18, 1951, when she began to focus on what she felt was her most rewarding calling-being wife and mother. After all the boys graduated from high school she began her career with Edina Public Schools as a teacher clerk in 1978 and retired as executive assistant to the Superintendent of Edina Schools, David Vick, in 1995. The family extends our special thanks to Becky Frederick and her incredible group of loving caregivers, Jaime, Janell, Sheri, Stacey and Tammy, who helped Dad on Mom's journey down the difficult road of Alzheimers so that she could stay at home until the very end. We also express our sincere appreciation to all those who cared for her at N.C. Little Hospice. It was a very comfortable, peaceful ten days.
