Born in Port Arthur, Texas, on December 4, 1932, she was the daughter of Talmadge Hargett and Hattie Lillian (Clark) Hargett. When you think of a pure heart with sound intentions, Marge’s was the picture-perfect example. She took great joy in helping others in any way she could, living a life dedicated to service of those around her. Marge’s “Mother of the Year” title was rightfully earned time and time again, nurturing and loving over 100 foster children, while simultaneously providing for her own family. She was an incredible woman, leaving a lasting impression on everyone she encountered throughout her well lived life, especially her children. Marge’s kids, foster or biological, never had to wonder if they were loved, because she unceasingly showered them in affirmations of love and warmth, continuing even after they left home. She practiced and taught reflexology for over 15 years, worked in interior design briefly and was a substitute teacher for Bridge City School District for a time as well. Marge often visited and volunteered for nursing homes, sharing her light with her friends in the home and cheering up everyone with her positive attitude and warm heart. She enjoyed traveling with her family and making new memories in whatever place they ended up, Switzerland, Alaska, Mexico City, and San Diego to name a few. The time she was able to spend with her family and the memories she could make were of upmost importance to her life. Marge was an incredible mother to all those who entered her home, a loving wife to her husband of 66 years, the best “MawMaw” her grandchildren and great grandchildren could ask for, and an amazing friend to all those who she encountered. Although she is no longer here to share her joy and warmth, it can be assured that her light will spread through generations to come.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Talmadge and Hattie Hargett; loving husband of 66 years, Pat Becker; sister, Lillian Hargett; and brothers, Robert Hargett, John Hargett, and Larry Hargett.
She is survived by her children, Pat Becker, Jr. and wife Helen of Groves, Sharon Harkness and husband Larry of Buna, and Randy Becker, Sr. and wife Penny of Bridge City; grandchildren, Talmadge Becker and wife Jamie, Elise Becker, Jessica Jones and husband Jake, Randy Becker Jr and wife Jamie, Angela Webb, and Jessica Harkness; and 5 great-grandchildren.
