Rebecca (Becky) Mae Iremonger (Smith) passed away at The Dalles Hospital Wednesday, December 18, 2019.

Becky was born in Klamath Falls, Oregon on May 3rd, 1958. Becky was the youngest of five children born to Walter and Dorothy Smith. She grew up on the family ranch in Langell Valley, Oregon, which fostered her life-long love for animals. From a young age, she nursed animals back to health where others would have given up. She rode horses and did 4-H, two pastimes which she would later enjoy with her beloved children and grandchildren.

At Bonanza High School, Becky participated in speech club and dance team. She was a cheerleader, basketball player, and cross country and track athlete. At Oregon State University, she met her future husband, John Iremonger, of Lakeview, Oregon. They lived in Corvallis before moving to Hood River, where John accepted a teaching position and Becky worked as a school secretary at Hood River Valley High School. When their daughter, Ami, was born, Becky decided to be a stay-at-home mother. Not long after the birth of son Thad, Becky felt the need to put down country roots and raise more animals than the dog, cats, and rabbits already residing in the backyard of their city home. The family moved to Mosier, Oregon where they had Ben, and where Becky managed the family and farm while homeschooling the children. Becky lived in Mosier until her passing.

Though her life was cut short by cancer, her legacy is long. Becky impacted lives through her involvement and volunteerism in church, after-school release time, Awana, and VBS. She was remarkably hospitable, opening her home and heart to many, many people over the years. She believed in ministering to the sick and elderly, offering encouragement and, often, a home-cooked meal. Becky was always very open and honest about her faith. She could befriend a stranger and know their life story in a short time.

Becky is survived by her faithful companion, John, and their children and grandchildren: Ami (Bryan) Nordquist (Justus, Luci, Treyton, and Elle), Thad (Raquel) Iremonger (Brayden and Mariah); and son Ben Iremonger (with longtime girlfriend, Brittany). Becky’s older siblings, Cheri, Craig, and Lyle, all reside with their families in Klamath County. She is preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Dorothy Smith and brother, Brett.

Becky will be laid to rest with a family graveside at the Langell Family Cemetery.

Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson's Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations) 1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River, Oregon 97031.

What we remember most about Becky was her deep love for God and her desire to serve Him, her friendliness, her care for about about people, her sincerity, and her beautiful smile. It was always a joy when she would visit our church. She is and will be missed.

Becky and I worked together at Hood River Valley High School, where she was a consistently cheerful, helpful presence, brightening my trips to the office with her personal kindness. And ear. She listened attentively, she empathized. We shared happy and sad news, fair weather and foul, as members of the team that a school must be. May Becky rest in peace.

So many wonderful memories from childhood but one from adulthood stands out. It was in 2006 my father had been involved in a horrible accident. During his long recovery Becky paid us a surprise visit. She made him a beautiful card, sang him one of his favorite songs and then prayed with us. It was a significant turning point in his recovery.

We will miss your smile Becky. To your family I pray they will be comforted by God’s Holy Spirit as only the Almighty God can bring comfort.

Sincere Condolences,
Christy Hitson
