Funeral Services for Angelia “Angie” Marie Richie Becton, 83, of West Monroe, LA, will be held at 3:00 P.M., Sunday, February 26, 2023, at Community Baptist Church in West Monroe, LA with Rev. Danny McIlvenne officiating. Interment will follow in Kilpatrick Serenity Gardens Cemetery in West Monroe, LA.

Angelia was born April 9, 1939, to her parents, Carrie Irene and Orie Richie, in Chatham, LA, and went home to be with her Lord and Savior on February 18, 2023, after a brief illness.

Mrs. Becton was a graduate of the 1957 class of West Monroe High School. After graduating she married and moved out of state. In 1961, she welcomed her daughter, Julie Ann Martin. A few years later, Angie and Julie returned to West Monroe. A few months later while enjoying a bowling game with some friends, Angie heard a familiar voice filled with laughter. It was her fellow graduate, John Becton. That day led to Angie and John being married on July 16, 1965.

 John and Angie began their family with Julie and later adopted a baby girl named Cindy. They then welcomed their son, John, into this world 22 months later.

 Angie enjoyed working at the downtown branch of Central Bank. She was employed there for 10 years until she pursued other business ventures.

 Angie enjoyed traveling to Yellowstone, Branson, Mexico, and Glacier National Park with her family. She and John took their first vacation without children on their 25th wedding anniversary. She also enjoyed reading, computer work, and above all her church family.  

Angie’s grandchildren were the joy of her life. Her most beautiful smiles can be found in the photos of her holding and playing with her grandchildren. Angie was extremely proud of the home school education, their mother, Katie, provided. She was thrilled when all 3 of her grandchildren received full college scholarships.

Angie loved the Lord with all her heart. She adored her church family at Community Baptist Church. Her Sunday school class held a special place in her heart. The love, prayers, and support of Community Baptist Church blessed her in so many ways.

Angie is preceded in death by her parents, O.W. and Carrie Irene Richie; her daughter, Julie Ann Martin Jones; grandson, George Robert “Robbie” Milford; and her brother, Thomas Richie.

Angie is survived by her husband, John Becton; son, John Becton Jr. and wife, Katie; grandchildren, Shawn, Hunter, and Cole; daughter, Cindy Jolly; brother, Hayward Richie; and cousin, Nat Richie.

Pallbearers will be Shawn Robert Becton, Jarrod Cole Becton, Alfred Dee Becton Jr., Kenneth Earl Becton, Richard D. Perot, and Gary Smith.

Memorials can be made to Shriners Children’s Hospital in Shreveport, LA.
