Sullivan, Rebecca "Becky" Stockett

Nurse And Administrator At Erlanger For Almost 30 Years

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Rebecca "Becky" Stockett Sullivan passed away on October 8, 2018, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, surrounded by her family and friends.

Becky was born on Jan. 12, 1954, in Kansas City, Ks., to the late Noble Clayton Stockett and Margaret Weber Stockett. They moved to Chattanooga in 1961, where she graduated from Tyner High School in 1972. She earned her nursing degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1977, and worked at Erlanger as a nurse and later an administrator for almost 30 years.

Becky was kind. She loved her family and friends fiercely and found joy in life's smallest moments. She celebrated everything and everyone, and she was known for her parties; if you can remember New Years Eve on Tennga Lane, then you didn't do it right. A fabulous cook and a Vols fan through thick and thin (mostly thin), she loved to travel — but her family will always remember her in the kitchen, with a smile on her face and a bourbon and water in her hand. She could put together 10,000 piece puzzles, had a quick wit and contagious laugh, and hugged everyone like she was their mother. And she was the best mother, both to her own kids and to the many who claimed her as their "Other Mom."  

Becky was preceded in death by her parents, whom she missed every single day.

She is survived by her daughter, Stefanie Sullivan; son, Matthew (Conoly) Sullivan; granddaughter, Margaret Katherine Sullivan; brother, Andy (Karan) Stockett; aunt Sissy (Bobby) Tomlin; cousins Harriett (Berton) Whitaker, Michael Connor, Carol Connor, Trish (Rick) Autery and Suzanne Allgood; and many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins who aren't quite sure how many times they are removed.

She will be missed greatly by her close neighbors and traveling friends, including Mitch and Donna, Phil and Beth, Pam, Sue, and of course, Buddy.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 14, at Christ United Methodist Church, 8645 East Brainerd Road, Chattanooga, Tn. 37421. A memorial service will follow at 3 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Ronald McDonald House or to a charity of your choice.
