Becky Martin SkadsenJune 8, 1958 ~ February 27, 2019 (age 60)
Born in Trinidad, Colorado in 1958, Becky Skadsen died in Colorado Springs on February 27, 2019. She is survived by two sisters, a daughter, and other wonderful family. Her father, Jewel Martin; her mother, Dolores Martin; and her husband, Todd Skadsen precede her in death.
Becky's life was one filled with both joy and pain as she found and married the love of her life, Todd Skadsen, only to lose him all too soon while their marriage was still new and full of life and love. She spent many years taking risks and could definitely be a lot of fun, but found herself suffering from pain in her neck and back that drove her to become more reclusive as the years progressed. Although Becky struggled to keep in touch with many people, she never cared for them any less.
Always the first to cry over any loss or inspiring dog video, Becky was an extremely compassionate soul. She cared very deeply for animals, even helping to raise and release baby birds who had fallen from their nests and become injured. She simply could not bear to see any animal suffer. Over the course of her whole life, Becky was a country girl at heart, preferring the open spaces where these animals lived to any city.
Becky will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
