Becky “Mrs. Becky” Gordon Torgrimson, a native of Ponchatoula and a resident of Morgan City lost her battle to cancer on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at AMG Specialty Hospital in Houma.

She was reunited with her son, Les Torgrimson; her father, Adam P. Gordon Sr.; her mother, Walburgia Rebecca LeBlanc; her father-in-law, Eugene Olaf Norman Torgrimson; her mother-in-law, Virginia Reagan; and her step-father-in-law, William Reagan.
Devoted to her family and friends, Ms. Becky was a people person who gave freely to others. She was the type of person who would clean the table at the restaurant…next to her. Mrs. Becky was known as a giving woman who made lasting impressions on those she met. Hobbies for Mrs. Becky included camping, sailing, and pretty much an outdoor activity. Though she didn’t like small spaces, Becky became certified to Scuba Dive and once sky dived with her son. (He said he threw her from the plane). She had a wonderful sense of humor and a lot of energy. She loved ballroom dancing and her favorite words were seriously, and I kid you not. Ms. Becky was very business oriented which showed when she managed the family business, Crew Service.
The family requests that visitation be observed on Tuesday, June 9, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and again on Wednesday, June 10, from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. at Hargrave Funeral Home. Ms. Becky will be laid to rest in the Morgan City Mausoleum.
