Rebecca Lynn Howell “Becky” Sims, 63 of Sparta, passed away March 13, 2019, at Saint Thomas Highlands Hospital, in Sparta.
Mrs. Sims was born Dec. 20, 1955.
She was known by many names – Becky, nurse, mom, and Granny B. She rarely met a stranger, and she would do anything for anyone who needed her help. She most enjoyed spending time with her family, shopping, riding the motorcycle with her husband, and playing with her puppy, Naomi. She always longed to be at the beach, so we honor her memory by taking her to spend eternity at her favorite beach. Her time here was shorter than expected, but she will be in our hearts forever.
Mrs. Sims was preceded in death by her father, T.C. Howell, and her daughter, Amanda Sims.
She is survived by her mother, Karyl Howell; her husband, Teddy Sims; daughters, Rachel Manis and husband Kenny Manis, Amy Smith and husband Tyler Smith; son Ryan Sims; grandchildren Lela Manis, Robert Manis, Seth Manis, Lucy Smith, Jonah Smith; brother, Steve Howell and wife Christy Howell; and many nieces and nephews.
The Sims family has entrusted Hunter Funeral Home with Becky’s cremation. A memorial service will be 1 p.m., March 16, 2019, at Hunter Funeral Home. The family will receive friends 11 a.m.-1 p.m., March 16, at the funeral home. Doug Downs will officiate.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Hunter Funeral Home.
