Ivy Becker (nee Hockett) of Pewaukee found peace on Saturday, March 18, 2017, at the age of 85 years, shortly after having a stroke.
Ivy was born on December 8, 1931, in Waukesha, to Neil and Helen Hockett.
She was preceded in death in 2007 by beloved husband of 53 years, Robert ("Sparky"). She was also preceded in death by brothers and sisters Neil ("Jack"), Bill, Eileen and Denny.
