It is with great sadness that we have to share that our dearest Becky passed away after a brief illness on Thursday, May 4, at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. She passed peacefully with family and friends by her side.
Becky was born in Fayette, Missouri, to the late Joe and Dorothy McClammer. She is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, John Lochner of Dayton, Ohio. She is also survived by her sisters, Donna Lonergan and Darlene Beaman, and their families, as well as her sister-in-law Sharon Shaw, brothers-in-law Jim Lochner, Paul Lochner, and Robert Lochner and their families. She also leaves behind many loving friends and her sweet puppy, Reagan.
Becky graduated from Mizzou with a bachelor’s degree in horticulture. Her love for plants and gardening never waned. She loved to read and cherished her time with her book club, whose members all became her wonderful friends. Becky was very involved in the Buckeye Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America. She spent countless hours at the racetrack volunteering and instructing students, which gave her great joy. Becky was also very active in local politics, donating her time for worthy candidates and causes.
Services will be held on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fayette, Missouri. Visitation will begin at 10 a.m. A mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m., with burial following the mass.
