Becky Verhey was born on July 28, 1980 to Timothy and Jean Verhey.
She graduated from Goodrich High School in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in 1999. She then moved to LaCrosse, WI and completed her business degree from UW-LaCrosse. Her love for adventure brought her to Portland, Oregon where she worked in marketing and public relations. She fell in love with roller derby and played for Rose City’s High Rollers, skating under the name Bunny Lepowski.
She is preceded in death by her mother Jean Verhey. She is survived by her twin sister, Donna Stock (Bill and Morgan) of Austin, Texas and sister Molly Lenoch (Tony and Jackson) of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and her father Timothy Verhey, of Thiensville, Wisconsin.
She also has many aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends who will miss her deeply.
Becky was loved by so many, and touched countless lives with her outgoing personality and charm. She was truly beautiful inside and out.
