She was also involved in Carnival of Silver Skates. During the summers, Becky was a lifeguard at the Groton Pool. Following graduation, Becky attended Lake Area Technical School in Watertown where she earned her degree in Dental Assisting. Becky’s first dental job was with Dr. Opp. She then continued her dental career with Dr. Carl Kimbler. On August 30, 1996, she was united in marriage with Steve Diegel at St. John’s Catholic Church in Groton. Together they were blessed with two sons, Treyton and Teylor.
Becky was a member of the United Methodist Church, Groton. She loved attending sporting events for her boys and her nieces and nephews. She also shared fond memories of coon hunting with her Dad before he passed. Becky was incredibly creative and artistic. She painted many pictures over the years and enjoyed interior decorating and design work. She shared these talents with others while working at Olde Bank Floral.
