The Lawrence County, native was born Aug. 12, 1981, a daughter of Roger and Debra McClaskey Hankins of Ironton. She is also survived by her husband, Charles Christopher Hieneman, who she married Sept. 21, 2001.

Becki was a 1999 graduate of Dawson-Bryant High School (Coal Grove), ACTC in Ashland, Kentucky and had received her Bachelor of Science in nursing degree (BSN).

She was currently working as a registered nurse for Kings Daughter Medical Center, where she loved to help families with the delivery of their babies. She loved her patients and they loved her. Anyone could call her if they needed advice and she was always happy to help when she could.

She was a light and a ray of sunshine to whomever she met and she will be missed very much.

She was preceded in death by paternal grandfather, Raymond Hankins; maternal grandparents, Clifford and Mary Jane Horn McClaskey; uncle, Ronald Hankins; aunt, Joan Estep; and her sister-in-law, Missy Hieneman.

She was also very close with her first cousin, Josh (Shaine) Estep, as they were raised together like brother and sister.
