Alberta Cecelia Becker of Cumberland, Iowa, passed away at the age of 93 on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019, at the Heritage House in Atlantic, Iowa.

Alberta, the daughter of Henry and Minnie (Frank) Sothman, was born at home on the family farm on August 29, 1926. Alberta graduated from the Atlantic High School in 1944, and taught in the country school system for six years. Alberta married John Roger Becker of rural Cumberland on February 18th, 1950. They farmed northwest of Cumberland where they raised a family of five. Alberta was an active member of the Atlantic Gospel Chapel, the B & D Club, and the Senior Haven. She served as a Union Lucky Clovers 4-H leader, and a Cub Scouts den mother. Alberta was dedicated to her faith, her husband, her family, to the farm and her community.

Alberta was an amazing woman. I'll remember her for her hard work, doing all the crafts for Bible school and how she loved teaching the kids, taking on big projects like refinishing all the church pews and her wisdom. I enjoyed her little laugh. She will always hold a special place in my heart. My condolences to all the Becker family.
