Obituary of Rebecca Broady
Rebbeca “Becky” Jo Broady of Vincennes Indiana, passed away January 6th, 2024 at the Hospice Care Facility in Sun City Center Florida.
She was born and raised in Indiana and attended high school in Vincennes. Even though she only attended Lincoln High School for a few years, she left her mark on every single person there, and she continued to do so for the rest of her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Betty Broady; and Dan Seipel and her brother in law John Denes. She is survived by her sisters, Rosalyn Denes and Sandra Rudd (Larry Rudd); her daughters, Nichol Killoran (James Killoran) and Jessica Ledford (Steve Ledford); grandchildren Tyler Niesen (Mark Niesen), Samantha Killoran (Gage Mann), Chase Siepel and Tarah Richey (Daniel Richey); great-grandchildren Roman, Violet, and Dexter. Becky was a force to be reckoned with. She loved fiercely and fervently in every aspect of her life, but she loved nothing more than her children, her grandchildren and her dogs. Even though she was almost five feet tall, she was impossible to not notice when she walked into a room. She lit up everywhere she went with a vibrant energy that everyone noticed. This was not limited to just humans. Every single animal loved her. If you thought your dog belonged to you, after a few moments with her, it quickly became hers. She was also one of the toughest people in the world. Since childhood, she suffered from severe scoliosis, but you could not tell by looking at her. It wasn’t unusual to find her rearranging the living room, pushing around furniture that weighed more than her, or to find her pulling weeds in her beloved garden.
She could run circles around every person in her life, and she never let her body slow her down. Rarely would you find her sitting still, unless she was laying out in the sun or standing by the water with a fishing pole in her hand. She dedicated her life to her family, and loved them with every fiber of her being. To say she will be missed is a gross understatement. The world lost a fun, vivacious, and beautiful soul, one who never backed down from the difficulties in life, and one who always showed up for the people she loved.
A memorial service will be held for friends and family in Sun City Center later this year, when the sun is shining in Florida again, just the way she liked it.
