Rebecca Susan Bowlin “Becky” Teas, 74, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Baptist East in Memphis. Born August 14, 1945, in Davenport, IA, she was the daughter of the late John Marshall Bowlin and the late Elizabeth Dols Bowlin. She was a faithful member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, organizing the Church bulletin for over 27 years. Becky graduated from Assumption High School in Davenport, IA. She married her soulmate, Dr. Ray Teas, On April 18, 1964, and they have enjoyed over 55 years together. Becky met Ray while he was attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport. They made their home in Calhoun City and raised three wonderful children. Becky worked alongside Ray in his practice since its beginnings. She also did public relations for Mississippi Chiropractic Association. Early in her career, she was a professional cake decorator, making the most beautiful wedding cakes, including the wedding cakes for all three of her children. She loved walking, and would walk 5 miles a day or more, and had to be the first one to the track, sometimes even around 2am. Most recently, her favorite hobbies were desktop publishing and photography. She loved computer work and taught herself how to put together programs and bulletins, even for the Chiropractic Association. Her photography consisted mostly of her grandchildren. Their lives have been beautifully captured in pictures thanks to Memaw. She loved her family and they were her main focus. She cherished her time with them, especially all the grandchildren. A beautiful person inside and out, her family and friends will miss her deeply, but they find some comfort in knowing she has been completely healed, and is rejoicing in her Heavenly home.
