Rebecca “Becky” Irene Doll
Rebecca “Becky” Irene Doll, a well-known and well-loved resident of Milford, went to be with the Lord on Friday, March 10, 2023, at 3:30 p.m. She was at home surrounded by those she loved.
Becky was born on Dec. 8, 1935, the daughter of Theo and Naoma (Speheger) Beer in Milford. On March 27, 1954, she married Arnold “Pete” Doll and together they shared nearly 69 years of marriage.
Becky loved people and would help anyone in need. She was a very hard worker, painting and hanging wallpaper for 16 years before opening her own business, Doll’s Decorating, in 1974.
She was also very involved in the community, serving on the Leisure Living Board, the K21 Foundation Board, and numerous Milford Planning Committees through the years.
Becky was very musically inclined and loved to sing. She especially loved to break out in song to her grandchildren. She got great pleasure cooking and swimming with them. She was a member of Wawasee Community Bible Church and served as choir leader at special events. Becky loved her family and was loved dearly by them.
Becky will be greatly missed by her husband, Pete Doll, of Milford; their three sons, Dan (Kiley) Doll, of Culpeper, Va., David (Bobi) Doll, of Milford, and Dick (Julie) Doll, of Milford; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren; along with two siblings, Mim Speicher, of Syracuse, and Bernie (Peg) Beer, of Nappanee. She was preceded in death by her parents; and four siblings, Marguerite, Phillip, Alan and Mary.
