1960 - 2020
Becky (Richardson) Shunn passed away on Sunday, November 15, 2020, at the Salina Regional Health Center in Salina at the age of 60.
She was born on July 15, 1960 to Earl and Colleen (Wangler) Richardson in Plainville. Becky married Scott Shunn in 1996. They later divorced.
Becky was a lifetime resident of Rooks County, growing up in Stockton where she graduated from Stockton High School with the Class of 1978. She attended Cosmetology School in Goodland and returned to Rooks County where she worked as a hairdresser for the remainder of her life. She owned Trimmer’z Salon in Plainville for many years and she and Scott owned the Duck Blind in Stockton.
She was a member of the Hospital Auxiliary, Sigma Phi Epsilon Sorority in Plainville, and was a lifetime member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary.
Becky loved her family, close friends, and was always up for a party. She would help anyone she could. She loved animals and fed many cats around her house—up until she met a skunk, that is! She was a hard-working and fun-loving woman who loved life. She will be remembered for her big heart, tender care, her smile as bright as sunshine, her love for animals, being stubborn to a fault, and always the life of the party. Her beautiful spirit will endure forever. We mourn the years that she will not have, and we celebrate the time that was hers and the life that she lived.
Left to cherish her memory is her mother, Colleen Richardson of Stockton; sister, Sandra Staton of Stockton; step-daughter, Brianna Shunn; nephews, George and Tony Glenn, and Jonathan and Donald Staton; and great-niece and nephew, Jasmine and Bubba Staton; as well as several colleagues and friends.
She is preceded in death by her father, Earl Richardson; and sister, Julie Glenn.
A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, November 20, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. at Mt. Vernon Cemetery located northwest of Stockton. Visitation will be held on Thursday, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the funeral home in Stockton.
Memorials are suggested to Ellis County Humane Society and may be sent in care of Plumer-Overlease Funeral Home, 723 North First, Stockton, KS 67669.
