Rebecca "Becky" Louise Castleberry

Rebecca "Becky" Louise Castleberry passed away on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, in Little Rock after a valiant battle with breast cancer. She was born on Sunday, October 28, 1973, in Anderson, Indiana. Becky's spirit was gentle yet resilient, and her kindness touched the lives of all who knew her. Her obituary reflects her touching nature as we celebrate her life and the beautiful memories she leaves behind.

Becky's passion for working with children led her to a fulfilling career in child care. She devoted herself to nurturing and shaping young minds and hearts throughout her professional journey. Her most recent role as an Administrative Specialist for the school of Science, Mathematics, and Allied Health at UAPTC showcased her efficiency and dedication to making a positive impact.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Becky cherished the time she spent with her family. She adored attending her children's sporting events and actively participated in their lives. Becky was truly a selfless individual who constantly cared for others, always putting their needs above her own.

Education played an essential role in Becky's life. She graduated from Frankton High School as part of the Class of 1992. Later, she pursued her passion for developmental therapy and family life by earning a bachelor's degree from Indiana State University. She was a longtime member of Fairview Park Church of Christ in Little Rock, where she taught bible classes for young people. 

Becky will forever be remembered for her giving nature, simplicity, and deep devotion to serving others. As a devout Christian, she exemplified love through her actions rather than words alone. Her presence brought comfort and solace to those around her.

The memory of Becky will live on through the hearts of many who were fortunate enough to have known her. Her proudest accomplishments were undoubtedly her children, Will and Lindsey. They were a constant source of joy and inspiration in Becky's life.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Anita Louise Owen Wallace, whom she received her servants heart from. Becky and her Mom were very close and both shared the love of working with children. 

Becky is survived by her loving husband of 25 years, Todd Castleberry; her father Lewis Wallace (Jayne); her children William Michael Castleberry and Lindsey Ann Castleberry; siblings Kim Powers (Raymond), Dan Wallace (Amber), Matthew Wallace (Salina), and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends mourn her loss.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Arkansas Hospice for their love and compassion during Becky's time with them and UAPTC for coming to sit with Becky and providing support for them at such a crucial time.

To honor Becky's memory, a visitation will be held at the Smith Family Funeral Home in North Little Rock on January 26, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Following the visitation, a funeral service will take place at the same location from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Becky’s honor can be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation (www.crohnscolitusfoundation.org), CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock, or University of Arkansas Pulaski Tech (www.uaptc.edu). 

Becky Castleberry truly touched the lives of many, leaving an indelible imprint of love and kindness. Her legacy continues to inspire us all to lead lives filled with compassion and selflessness. In this time of mourning, let us also celebrate the beautiful person she was and the incredible impact she made during her time with us. Rest in peace, dear Becky.
