Rebecca (Becky) Ruth (Daman) Millard is rejoicing in Heaven today! Becky was born September 12, 1942 in Waltreak, Arkansas to Thurman Daman and Stella Williams Daman. She was 80 years old.

Becky was a 1960 graduate of Danville High School. She held a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Arkansas Tech University. Over the years, she was a preacher’s wife, cattle and chicken farmer, storekeeper, and kindergarten teacher. She loved her babies.

In her youth, one of her passions was singing and making music. In her latter years, she loved to listen to her children sing and play music in church.

Our Mamoo was selfless and generous to a fault. She managed to find some good in everyone and beauty in those things others tossed aside. We love you.

Becky leaves behind to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 61 years, Larry “Pat” Millard of the home and their children: Patti Millard Fletcher, Lisa Millard Davis and husband Herbert and Patrick Millard and wife Vicki Howell Millard.

Becky is also survived by one brother, David Daman and wife Vada as well as sister-in-law, Patsy Millard Biggerstaff, sister-in-law Jimmie Millard Allen and husband Jackie Allen. Becky will be missed by all that knew her and the many whose lives she impacted including a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, great-great nieces, and nephews, “adopted sons and daughters” and many friends that she loved dearly.

Becky was preceded in death by her parents, Thurman and Stella Williams Daman, and two sisters: Reba Underwood and Jean Sliter.
