She returned to Bay Mills Indian Community in 1994. She felt like she had come home and loved her community of extended family. Becky taught beading classes and sewed regalia. She was a driving force for a return to traditional foods and gardening practices. The Do Indigenous Gardening (DIG) project was an achievement which culminated in the Indigenous Gardening Conference which she spearheaded. She served on variety of committees and focused on strengthening the community she dearly loved. She spoke the language and passed along knowledge to whom ever asked. She was a proud recipient of the Frank Hugo Award. The following is written by her beloved daughter Mia: She is a great mom to us. We are miss you in the family. I hope she is in God's hands. She love Tami, Mia, Casey, Derek, Dad. She love going to casino. She has many friends at Bay Mills.

Dear Darlene and family,

I was saddened to read of the death of your sister Becky. I remember you speaking of her in such loving terms and I still cherish the little white moccasins she crafted for you to share with a co-worker at MSU Extension. I am thinking and praying for you and your family at this time.

Nancy
