Rebecca May ‘Becky’ Stinson Wright
At the age of 58, the cherished Rebecca “Becky” May Wright of Eva went to join the Lord. We said goodbye as the sun began to crest over the mountain and although we will miss her, we will rejoice in the fact that she is now with her Heavenly Father.
Becky was a member of the 1970 class of Eva High School, and a graduate of St. Vincent’s Nursing School in 1973. She began her career in nursing at the age of 16 at Hartselle Medical Center and after 40 years of service retired from her beloved career. In May of 2010 Becky had one of her proudest moments in her life when she watched her daughter Brooke take up her lamp and continue the love of nursing. She shared many great times with her family as they traveled to their favorite place, Disney World.
Becky was an enormous advocate of education. She continued to learn and thirsted for knowledge on a daily basis. She enjoyed doing arts and crafts with her granddaughter; Hayleigh. Her grandson Donevan was her buddy and he’ll always be a “Granny’s Boy.”
A celebration of her life will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 2, at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church with Bros. Jeff Stevenson and Danny Pitts officiating with burial in the Mt. Carmel Cemetery. Her body will be at the Church one hour prior to the service. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.
Becky was born at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, La. on May 16, 1952, to Boyd and Hazel Childers Stinson.
Her father preceded her in death.
She leaves behind her husband, Larry J. Wright of Eva; a son, Brian Christopher (Heather) Wright of Tuscaloosa; a daughter, Brooke Ashleigh (Don) Robinson of Eva; her mother, Hazel Stinson of Eva; two sisters, Kathy Jane (Steve) Holmes of Fairview and Teresa Ann (Bruce) Runge of Vinemont; and two grandchildren, Hayleigh Dallas Robinson and Donevan Lakota Robinson.

In lieu of flowers, the family request the memorials be made to the American Diabetes Association.
