Longtime Still River resident Becky Shives died Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018, of complications from a fall at her daughter Ansley’s home in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she and her husband Lindsay had traveled for Thanksgiving. Becky’s kindness, generosity, and unconditional love inspired the lives of everyone who knew her. She was a loyal, caring person who reached out to those in need.

Sarah Rebecca Smith was born Sept. 17, 1933, in Savannah, Georgia, to Elsie (Yawger) and Sankey Smith. She attended North Fulton High School in Atlanta where she met her future husband, Lindsay Shives. Becky graduated from Woman’s College at University of North Carolina in Greensboro. She and Lindsay, a practicing architect, moved north in 1961, to a large farmhouse close to the road in Still River.

Becky taught kindergarten until their daughter Ansley was born, and she was business manager of Lindsay Shives Associates. A longtime member of the Garden Club of Harvard, Becky graciously offered her garden for tours and generously gave away divisions of her plants to fellow gardeners. Her garden was both natural and formal, whimsical and orderly. Becky volunteered for Harvard Help and Meals on Wheels, bringing support to those who needed it.

For more than 50 years, Becky was an active member of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Clinton, where she was a member of parish ministries. Her caring outreach touched many people in the congregation and the community.

Twenty-two years ago, Becky and Lindsay moved west down the hill into a smaller house Lindsay had designed on their property. There was no barrier with nature—the gardens, fields, and mountains were part of the home Becky loved.

In addition to her husband Lindsay, Becky leaves her daughter, Ansley, and her husband, Sean Hadas, of Greensboro; grandson Cody Hadas of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina; and granddaughter Shelby Hadas of Greensboro. Her older brother, Fred Y. Smith, lives in Honolulu.

A memorial service to celebrate Becky’s life will be held Saturday, Dec. 1, at 11 a.m. in the Church of the Good Shepherd, 209 Union Street, Clinton. A reception will be held at the church following the service.
