Rebecca Harrison Ward, 53, of El Dorado, Arkansas left for the arms of her Lord and savior on Saturday, January 7, 2017. She was born on April 26,1963 in El Dorado, Arkansas to J.T. and Albertine Harrison. Becky lived her life here as she took care of her family and served her God.

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.

She graduated from El Dorado High School in 1981 and she attended South Arkansas Community College. She was employed by Simmons Bank for over 20 years and by Securitas for another 4 years. Becky was an avid Razorback fan and a “true” animal lover. She will be remembered always for her bright smile which would light up the room when she was around. Her favorite catch-phrase was “God’s got this”. Becky was a member of Westside Baptist Church.

Her husband and family would like to thank the faithful, caring staff of Life Touch Hospice for their compassionate service during her final year.

A Memorial fund has been established at Simmons Bank in El Dorado in her honor.

The family wishes that memorial gifts be made in her honor to Life Touch Hospice, 2301 Champagnolle Road, El Dorado, Arkansas, 71730.

Services are pending at this time and are under the direction of A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400

    I got to know Becky, and Gammy, on Facebook. I can’t even imagine the struggle that it’s been, but God used you both to impact my life, and I’m sure the lives of many others. God bless all of the family, and provide peace that surpasses all of our understanding. God’s eternal promises are true.

    I’m so sorry for ur loss. Marlin has shown such love for his wife during this difficult journey. She is now at peace and will patiently await her families arrival, when their time comes. Try not to be too sad for her leaving so soon. God has something better in store for her. Love and prayers.

    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!

    Marlin, you have honored the Lord the way you have so sweetly cared for Becky. We know that days are very empty and difficult for you now, but we also know that the Lord is able to meet your needs in perfect portions now and in the hard days that are surely coming. One thing we know and Becky knew.. she was loved and adored. The reunion one day will be beyond description.
