Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend passed away on December 19, 2020. Becky joins her parents Herman and Emma Leigh Snedegar, sister, JoAnne Snedegar, daughter, Danna Leigh Fraley, aunt, Bess E. Roberts in heaven. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 65 years, James Fraley, and her children, Diane Mann (Danny), Denise, and Danny Fraley (Jamie). Becky’s greatest calling in this life was her role of Grandmother to Emily Wages, Macey D. Maze, Darby D. Fraley, Olivia K. Maze, and Griffin “Griff” Fraley. Granny Goose never missed a chance to participate and entertain her tribe, and she was so proud of their accomplishments.
Born January 26, 1936, Becky Fraley was a life-long resident of Owingsville and a good Democrat who never voted for a Republican in her life. Becky graduated from Owingsville High School in 1954 and attended Morehead State University in 1955. The ’54 ladies maintained a close friendship throughout the years, and were known to occupy tables at local restaurants for hours during their outings. Becky loved this time with her friends, sharing and making memories and adventures.
Becky was a pillar of the community as a life-long member of the Owingsville Christian Church where she served as a deaconess and a trustee. She was a member of the Town and Country Homemakers and the Owingsville Women’s Club. Becky’s career path lead her to the County Clerk’s Office and the Kentucky Department of Social Services, where she worked for 33 years to support the people of her community. Upon retiring Becky earned her real estate license and worked with Lisa Rogers Reality.
Becky loved her family vacations, home projects, antiques, Christmas, the “races”, UK basketball, and fish sandwiches. Becky’s Christmas ornament collection from her travels and the stories surrounding the adventures to collect them will be memories cherished forever. Becky never met a stranger or a fish sandwich she didn’t like. Becky was an example of a life well lived. Her grace, compassion, kindness, and generosity is the legacy she leaves behind.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions and out of an abundance of caution, a small private service will be held on Monday, December 21, 2020. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made in memory of Becky Fraley to the Christian Social Services or the Owingsville Christian Church.
