It is with tremendous sadness and the heaviest of hearts that we share the news of the passing of our beloved 'Miss Becky', Becky VanMeter LaBrash. She had just turned 58 years old a few weeks ago.
Becky had worked here at The Pointe under previous ownership - but it was her second stint here, where she truly began to take flight.
She started with us at The Golf Club almost immediately last summer, in May, working in the Pro Shop. She would literally help wherever and whenever she could. We learned quickly how infectious her energy and her smile could be. She took to the new position quickly and excelled. It was evident that her spirit would help us get our feet underneath us in those early stages of the business.
When we brought Miss Becky back to work full-time as our Director of Administration ... well that's where Becky really stood out; and in all honesty - we don't know where we'd be right now without her!
Her charm won everyone over immediately - even those that did not know her or had never worked with her before; her laughter(my goodness that laugh) and her never ending penchant for silliness, was a welcome addition to our day to day operations. It made each of us (Tony, myself, Abby) understand and realize that at the end of the day, it's just a job - and we must all embrace and revel in joy.
She was our glue ... she allowed us to move forward as a business simply by being her. That's it. Just showing up every day, doing the task at hand - and doing so with a smile to share with any stranger and a laugh to spare for all.
We adored her. We loved her. We will absolutely mourn her.
Our hearts are broken for her incredible husband Dan. Her numerous, amazing friends here at The Pointe and for all who knew and loved her. We share in the sorrow and sadness of this loss. We have a few ideas to honor Becky and we will let everyone know when we will have a celebration of life here at The Pointe once details are solid and set.
Fly high Miss Becky - we'll keep smiling, and we'll continue to laugh, even if it's through tears. We owe you that much and more.
We love you and we will forever miss you
Matt, Abby, Tony and the entire Golf Club at Eagle Pointe family
