Becky Lynn Black / November 05, 2013

Becky Lynn Black, age 60, of Nelson, the beloved wife of Dr. Dave Black, went home to be with the Lord at 6:52 a.m. on Nov. 2, 2013 after a four-year struggle with cancer.

Visitation was held at the Watkins-Cooper-Lyon Funeral Home Saturday, Nov. 2, from 7-9 p.m.

A “Celebration Service” honoring the work of the Lord in Becky’s life was held at Binkley Chapel on the campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C., on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 2 p.m., followed by the interment at Bethel Hill Baptist Church north of Roxboro at 5 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted to help the Blacks build a ministry training center in Burji, Ethiopia, where Becky grew up.
