Becky was a lifelong resident of Shreveport, Louisiana. She was a graduate of Fair Park High School in Shreveport, LA in 1959 where she served in numerous activities including Y-Teens, Pelican Girls’ State, and Student Council. She served as the President, Secretary and led other groups in various capacities. She was elected to the state office of Registrar of State Land as well as being elected as Miss Fair Park her senior year. She went on to attend Centenary College where she pledged Chi-Omega Sorority. Becky was a member of Lakeview United Methodist Church until its closure.
She was a homemaker and worked a significant part of her adult life with the Patient Partner Program at LSU Medical Center educating medical students and other healthcare staff on detection and diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. She suffered with rheumatoid arthritis a majority of her adult life but many of those around her would never know it. She was very proud to be a published author and traveled the world with her passion to educate in hopes that she would be able to help other people. She also devoted her time and energy to selflessly taking care of others, especially older family members and friends who were so grateful for her care.
Mom was the kindest person to walk this earth. Her infectious smile and laugh made everyone around her happy and comfortable. She immensely loved her family and friends. MiMi/Becky June made it a point to be very involved with her grandchildren and gave an unimaginative amount of patience and love to them every single minute they were together. They will deeply miss her along with her family and friends. She was such a strong person and always put the needs of others before hers. She really made a lasting impression on all those who were so fortunate to spend some time with her. This world will not be the same without her in it.
She was preceded in death by her spouse, Joe Daniel Callicoatte, her grandson, Judd Daniel Callicoatte, Jr., her parents, Otis and Dorothy June Musgrave, and a special Aunt Eva “Tot” Jeryo.
She is survived by her son, Judd Daniel Callicoatte (Jennifer) of Shreveport, and daughter Tara June Callicoatte-Ringenwald of Collingswood, NJ; brother, Marshall Musgrave (Carolyn) of Garland, TX.
