Becky Carlisle Memorial Service »
Hundreds of people packed Boulder Adventist Church on the afternoon of Saturday, July 21, to pay their respects to Becky Carlisle who fell asleep in Jesus on Monday, July 9, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
As Becky would have no doubt wished, music was heavily emphasized throughout the program, with several items performed by a mass choir made up of members of Boulder Church and The Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church in Northglenn, Colorado, where Becky served as organist and choir director. John Sackett, Ivy Lee, Devon Howard, Doyle Cline, George Swanson, Robin McClanahan, Jon Hoehn, and Greg Hodgson also performed.
Tributes were given by the Reverend Bill Davis and Pastor Darrell Rott (former Boulder Church pastor). Pastor Walt Williams, also a former Boulder Church pastor, gave the homily. Kevin McClanahan read the life sketch. A beautiful slide show gave an overview of the wonderful life Becky shared with her family and many friends. Current Pastor Japhet De Oliveira facilitated an open mic segment during which dozens of people shared stories of Becky that were poignant, funny, and memorable. Her three children, Kristin, Jonathan, and Melissa, along with their families, expressed deep gratitude to the many people who put this service together in honor of their beloved mother.
