Egelston, Rebecca "Becky"

Egelston, Rebecca “Becky”
Long time resident of Evanston, Becky Egelston, 55, passed away Dec. 10, in Battle Creek, Mich. after a short illness. Devoted daughter of Martin and Kathy, loving sister of Mark (Amy), Marcella (Bruce) Garrett, Seth (Nancy), and Phillip (Deanna) Egelston; beloved aunt of Lindsay, Maleah, Andrew, Sean, Ryan, Megan, Claire and Morgan and friend to many.

Born with a neuromuscular condition that left her physically impaired, Becky never complained about her challenges or let her physical limitations slow her down. Often she could be seen riding her three-wheel bicycle, and in later years her wheel chair, up and down Central Street.

Becky always had a friendly smile and a warm “Hello” for whomever she met. She was a voracious reader and loved to spend many hours at the North Branch Library in Evanston. An avid Chicago Cubs and Bears fan, win or lose, Becky never gave up on her favorite teams.  

Becky has been and always will be an important part of our lives – she will be greatly missed.  

Services are private. Memorials to Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave., Evanston, IL  60201 would be appreciated.
