Becky was an inspirational person in my life, going way back to her early commitment to anomaly and misuse detection. Her cheerful nature and wisdom will be sorely missed, including some more or less monthly one-on-one banter that we had recently on a government advisory board.

Her passing is a huge loss for the wider community of friends and colleagues that she had established.
