She was preceded in death by her son, Mark Beck and her brother, Lorrell Pingel Lila was a beautiful person who loved Don with her whole heart. Good ol’ Don did anything and everything for Lila, although would sometimes lay claim he couldn’t “hear”. Lila’s family was everything to her, and she cherished family get togethers. She had a passion for camping with Don, and later buying a home in Apache Junction, AZ. She loved flowers and especially roses, picked by Don. We are thankful for the amazing memories with Lila Leone Beck! In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the discretion of the family.
