Rebecca "Becky" Ann (Cobb) Clarke

November 11, 1939 ~ April 18, 2021 (age 81)


Rebecca Ann (Becky) Cobb Clarke passed away April 18th, 2021.

Becky was born November 11th, 1939 in Asheboro, NC to the late William and Cletus Cobb.

Becky graduated from Poquoson High School in 1958 and was proud to serve as an Air Force civilian at Langley Air Force Base for 37 years.  She was a cherished friend to many who loved her Southern charm, her wit and her strength.  Her life was one of kindness and loyalty.  Becky filled her home with antiques which reflected her personality, and she loved cooking and entertaining both family and friends with elaborate dinners.  She especially loved babies, always stopping to smile and coo with little ones.  Becky made a difference in many lives and she will be missed.  Her light shone brightly and will not be diminished in the hearts of all those who loved her.

Becky was predeceased by her parents, her brother Bill, Jr., her sister Martha, and a granddaughter, Mackenzie Grace Clarke.  She is survived by two sons, Charles Dwight Clarke (Cindy) of White Stone and their children William, Rachel, and Harris, and Steven Delos Clarke (Jen) of Poquoson and their children Zachary and Ella.  She is also survived by sister, Jennifer Goodwin (Mike) of Luray, Virginia.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Warwick Forest (Keswick, Evergreen, and Piedmont) for their help, care, and friendship over the last several years.

A graveside service will be held 11:00 a.m. Saturday, April 24th at Emmaus Baptist Church Cemetery by Pastor Scott Wade.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to the Poquoson Public Library.
