Rebecca Landoll Whitaker, 45, of Shreveport, LA, died unexpectedly on January 5, 2016 at Willis-Knighton Pierremont Health in Shreveport of heart failure complications.
Born on October 6, 1970 in Norwalk, Ohio, Becky graduated from Edison High School in 1989. Her spirit of adventure led her first to Florida where she lived in Ft. Lauderdale before meeting her husband, Lucian Cary III (Cary), and moving to Louisiana.
Becky centered her energies on the growth and development of sons Lucian (Luke), 9, and Logan, 7.
As the fifth child in a line of seven siblings, she is remembered by her brothers and sisters as a vivacious, feisty, woman whose priority was involvement with family. At family homecomings, she enjoyed showing her sons the River Road family farm where as a child she spent many carefree days exploring the farm, picking mulberries and conversing by the firepot.
In Shreveport, she dedicated herself to volunteering at her sons school and created a nurturing, loving home. She happily spent countless hours in patient play time with her boys, telling them stories, creating artwork or cooking together.
True to her giving nature, Becky was an organ donor recognizing an opportunity to help others.

her parents, John and Virginia Landoll of Milan, OH;
Siblings John Landoll of Tampa, FL; Patrick and Laura Landoll of Cincinnati, OH;
