March 25, 1974-March 4, 2022
Heather (Holden) Becker was a beloved daughter, sister, mother, stepmother, wife, aunt, friend, mentor, caregiver, former YMCA summer camp director and current board member. Heather was born in Menomonie, WI and died at her Plymouth, MN home at the age of 47. Her husband, Dave, was at her side.
With her effervescent smile, infectious laugh and bright red-orange hair, Heather lit up a room. Her leadership skills and organizational abilities were to be envied. She provided guidance and loving support for those fortunate enough to be her friend. Heather was a devoted mother and a steadfast and supportive friend. She will be profoundly missed.
Heather is survived by her daughters, Greta and Stella Becker; son, Axel Becker; stepchildren, Annika and Bear Lilja; husband, David Lilja; mother, Constance Holden (TK Smith); father, Terry Holden (Sally Good); sister, Alisha Gocke (Jason Gocke); niece and nephew Eloise and Harrison Gocke; dear companions Maya, Kristin, Anders, Jorgen, Gretchen and James, and many close friends and members of an extended Camp Icaghowan family. She will be missed by her much-loved dogs Timber, Jax and Tuukka.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, March 11th at 2pm at The Landing Hotel at 925 Lake Street, Wayzata, MN.
