Rebecca “Becky” Kay Ellis

December 7, 1954 – December 28, 2023

Rebecca “Becky” Kay Ellis was born December 7, 1954, in Hopewell, VA. She called for her final toast on December 28, 2023, after a brief illness. Her heart gave all the love it could give. Becky was 69 years of age.

Becky is survived by her devoted and loving son, Chris Dressler (Amanda); and her adorn granddaughters, Kayla Dressler and Addy Dressler; her siblings, John Thomas Ellis, Janet Ellis Hartsell (Paul), Mary (Libba) Ellis Owens (Frank), Robert (Bee) Ellis, Jr (Rita), Ronnie Ellis, Judy Ellis Steward, and Carolyn Ellis Johnson (Michael); her many nieces, nephews, and extended family. She was preceded by her eldest son, Dinky; parents Robert L. Ellis and Mary W. Ellis; sister Barbara (Tennie) Ellis Hobert; and brothers Jackie W. Ellis, Sr. and Jerry Ellis.

Becky enjoyed retirement from Reynolds Metal after 30+ years and lived life to the fullest. She found her passion working and volunteering for the VFW Post 637. During her tenure, she fed hundreds of veterans participated in many community outreach programs, and won many volunteer awards for her selfless acts of kindness. She gained so many loving and caring friends who loved her very much. She will be deeply missed by all of them, especially the VFW and Auxiliary members and staff.

There will be a future announcement in the coming days detailing Becky’s Celebration of Life through the VFW’s Facebook page – VFW Post 637 Hopewell VA.

In lieu of flowers, please donate in Becky’s name to the VFW Post #637 supporting our beloved veterans.
