She was preceded in death by her father, J.T. Harrison and her grandparents, Effie and H.T. Pratt and Gladys and John T. Harrison.
Becky is survived by her husband of 29 years, Gammye Marlin Ward, her son Bradley Matthew (Rachel Marie Yeargain) Ward, of Savannah Georgia, her mother, Albertine Pratt Harrison, one brother; Wayne Harrison, and two sisters; Linda (Rodney) Landes and Deborah (Greg) Brantley, Brother in law, Mark Ward (Teresa) of Camden, Arkansas, sister in law, Shirley Holmes of Geneva, Alabama, sister in law, Faye Ward Henley (Pat) of Norphlet, Arkansas, sister in law, Kaye Ward Livingston ( Allen) of Thornton, Arkansas, as well as her nieces, nephews, cousins and other extended family.

I met Becky in the 9th grade . We became best high school friends and remained that way.. Becky would ride her bike to my house with her guitar in tow. Then came her drivers license ….With keys to that old station wagon she would haul us to the Mall parking lot with that same guitar in tow.. I will miss you always my dear friend!
