Rebecca Lynne Fruge

August 27, 1958 ~ December 28, 2014

Rebecca Lynne Richard Fruge, of Lake Arthur, passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, December 28, 2014. She was born to the late Martin “Bybo” Richard and Rena Thibodeaux on August 27, 1958. Becky spent her adult life as a nurse, a profession she loved. She was best known at St. Francis Cabrini as the nurse who could make any patient laugh, no matter how dire the circumstance, and who could work 24 hours straight as long as she had an ample supply of cracklins and Route 44 Cokes from Sonic. The only thing she loved more than caring for the sick was caring for her family and friends. Becky was generous to a fault. She would give her last dollar to others, then find another dollar to give. Her grandchildren (and many of her friends) learned to call her Beck or Beck Beck once her first grandchild, Darion, christened her so. Her children, Brandi Roy of Iowa, Brandon Roy (Aimee) of Jennings, and Laura Roy Edwards (Chase-who she had finally warmed up to after only 16 years) of Arnaudville, will miss her dearly. She was preceded in death by her former husband Randy Roy and her step-son Chad Roy. Her grandchildren, Darion, Poe, Cohen, Riley, Ethan, Bradley, Emma, Caleb, Marleigh, Landry, and Benji, will miss her laugh and her custom-order pancakes. She will also be missed by her “old hens”, including Sally Mhire, who she shared coffee with at all hours of the day and night when she wasn’t binge-watching true crime TV shows and critiquing the appraisals on Antiques Roadshow with her furry friend Biffy. Her five siblings, Matin “Gaté” Richard (Margene), Cheryl Price (Rick), Raymond Richard (Georgia), Rena Gaspard (Pat), and Gerald Richard, chose to carry their sister to her final resting place beside her father under beautiful live oak trees bordering the Mermentau River. Visitation and funeral services will be held at Miguez Funeral Home in Lake Arthur. Wake hours are Tuesday, December 30th from 4-9pm with a rosary being said at 6pm. Funeral services will be at 2pm, with a burial following at Duhon Cemetery in Mermentau. All her friends are invited to come, smoke a cigarette, drink some coffee, and pass a good time griping about whatever ails them.

  6. I was in an online support grouo with Becky. She was an active member of the community and her comments were funny, uplifting, and genuinely supportive. Just last week, she posted a quote that really resonated with me, and put me in a better frame of mind for the Christmas festivities. This morning I was looking for it and instead came across the news of her passing. I want to tell her family that even though I didn't have the pleasure of truly knowing her, Becky's presence made the support group a better place, and I am certain that I am not the only person whose life she touched and made better while she was there. She will be missed.

  7. Aimee and brad and children Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Remember the good times, those are the precious gifts we leave with one another. Love Robbie and family

  8. I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of Rebecca Fruge. I am truly sorry for the loss you are feeling. Anytime that we loss someone in the death, can be the hardest thing that you can experience and will keep Rebecca entire family in my prayers. Our God Jehovah never intended for you to deal with the loss that death brings. During this difficult time, know that God wants you to rely on him for comfort. (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4) It is my hope that turning to God for comfort and cherishing the wonderfuly memories of Rebecca will console you in the day's ahead.

  9. I would like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of a wonderful person. Becky was a wonderful inspiration in our online RA group and her posts brought light to a lot of lives.

  11. Oh Becky how I am going to miss you. We only knew each other online but shared so many good times laughing, venting and trying to make sense of this crazy disease we lived with. Fly free my friend, fly free.

  12. May you fly high with all the Angels. You were a special friend for many , many years. May God Comfort Your Family, now and the weeks, months & years to come .

  13. To Becky's family: I had the pleasure of working with Becky at Cabrini Hospital. She always made things better. I learned so much from her, not only as a nurse, but as a human being as well. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sonya

  14. Will miss you so much Becky. We had some great times in Alexandria, working at the hospital, crabbbing and going to the casino. Rest in peace my friend.

  15. We are sorry to hear of Becky's death and that we were unable to attend any of the services. I remember so vividly how sad she was when Taunt Alice died. Grief is for the living, know that Becky is in a much better place than we can ever understand until we join her. She has been reunited with her family members and her Dear Lord. Mother Mary wrap your loving arms around all of Becky's family and ask your dear son, Jesus, to comfort them until they all meet, again.
