Julia Rebecca “Becky” Holton, 88, of Winter Garden, Florida, passed away on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at home surrounded by her loving family. 

Becky was born on Jan. 7, 1929, in Linadale, Florida, the daughter of the late Lee Allen Halford and Lillie Mae (Yoemans) Halford. Becky was the wife of the late Richard Alison Sanders and the late John Franklin Holton.

Becky was a banker for more than 30 years. She started with the First National Bank of Winter Garden and retired from Wells Fargo. She was a very active member with the Beulah Baptist Church; she held just about every position at the church, from Sunday school teacher to being in the choir and the WMU.

Becky was also a member of the Red Hat Society. For fun she loved to garden; she had a green thumb and could grow anything. She also loved to go fishing, often being the only one to catch fish.

Becky is survived by two daughters, Iris Peterson, of Winter Garden, Florida, and Rebecca Jeancola (and Dan) of Maitland, Florida; one stepson, Gary Holton of Shoreline, Washington; three grandchildren; one step-grandchild; four great-grandchildren; four step-great-grandchildren; a sister, Faye Albritton (and William) of Willow Oak, Florida.

She is preceded in death by her son, Richard A. “Ricky” Sanders.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 12, 2017, at Beulah Baptist Church, 671 Beulah Road, Winter Garden, Florida, officiated by her beloved nephew, David Cravey. This will be followed by burial in Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Beulah Baptist Church Building Fund.

Becky’s arrangements are in the caring guidance of Winter Oak Funeral Home, 1132 E. Plant St., Winter Garden, Florida.
