TALLASSEE Rebecca Carlock Webb Landry of Tallassee, Tenn. died April 19, 2012 after an extended illness. A family service will be held in Due West, S.C. Becky was born March 5, 1954 in Sacramento, Calif. to Ruth and Bruce Carlock. Adventuresome and fearless, Becky came into the world elbow first and followed that trend throughout her life, always facing lifes hardships head on, and assisting others in need with her compassion and strength. She was a lover of all creatures great and small, and taught others to do the same. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and volunteered extensively at Blue Grass Elementary teaching students the creative arts and dramatics, use of imaginations, and how to use their unique abilities. Beloved wife, mother, partner, aunt, daughter, and friend, she was creative and talented, loving and giving, stubborn and hard-headed, funny and very sociable. Becky loved her family above all else and always put them first. Her two sons and her beloved Husband Bill Landry and her extended family were the focus of her life. Becky was a champion of the needy and the helpless, and nurtured anyone or thing that needed her. She had an amazing gift for making life fun and exciting for those around her and anyone else that needed her. She was artistic and hard-working, and the mountaintop home she built and shared with her husband is a testament to her skills in design and construction, decoration and gardening, but not stonemasonry. She is survived by her Husband, Bill Landry; Sons, Michael Scott Webb, of Seattle, Wash. and Ryan Edward Webb, of Eugene, OR; also Jack and Weatherly Landry, their children, Gus and Boone Landry, of Wilmington, NC; Father, John Bruce Carlock Jr. , of Due West, S.C.; Sister, Elizabeth Carlock, of Clemson, S.C.; Brothers, John Bruce Carlock III, of Greenville, S.C., Mathew Benjamin Goldstein, of Washington, DC; Nieces, Sydney Carlock, of Washington, DC, Madeline Carlock, of Vermont, and Jianna Carlock of Clemson, S.C., also by her Cats, Moxie and Callie and Buddy the dog, all of which she saved and raised well. She is preceded in death by her Mother, Ruth McCardle Carlock of Due West, S.C. In lieu of flowers donations should be sent to Fish Hospitality Pantries, 800 Northshore Drive, Knoxville, TN 37919.
