It is with great sadness we announce the death of our beloved Rebecca "Becky" Lovato.
She fought the good fight. In as much as it could be on her terms, she decided
it was time for her to leave us. Surrounded by loved ones her passing came on September 6, 2020
in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Her story began on October 6, 1959 when she was born to Julia Aguayo and Isaac Lovato in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Rebecca was a wonderful mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and auntie. She doted on her
family and was happiest spending time with them, seeing their successes and watching them grow.

Rebecca was fortunate enough to have been able to live and work in many places. For a time in
Washington, Kelso, CA., Broken Arrow, OK., and Estacion Consuelo, Chihuahua, Mexico. In every place she
lived she made friends. Not just small time friends. Life long friends. She made a point to
nurture her friendships, stay and touch and made sure they knew they were important,
loved and mattered to her.

Rebecca shared her talents with everyone at one time or another. She could make something from
nothing. A ball of string into the most beautiful crochet work. The most simple doily, hat,
blouse, blanket or baby bootie would certainly have intricate, beautiful and artistic stitching.
If you were ever gifted one of her creations you were sure to know she cared about you and you were
sure to cherish it every time it was used. She could take a piece of fruit you thought was done and
would bake the most delicious bread with it. If she ever shared her banana nut bread with you, you
could taste the love in the bread. Flour and water into the tastiest tortillas or a variety of baked
treats. Rebecca certainly valued those old traditions of creating something with her hands and love.

Rebecca was an avid writer. She took her time with words to make sure that every one that was written
was meaningful. Her favorite way to keep in touch with far away friends was the old fashioned
way with pen and paper. For you "youngins" that meant putting it in an envelope, addressing it, placing
a stamp on the envelope and putting it in that blue mailbox. Her son Jesus would often see the
writings and say "Mom you should really write a book, people would love to buy a book written like that."

During the past few years, Rebecca took an great interest towards her ancestry. Spending countless
hours researching and using her writing talent documenting her family history. Rebecca felt it was good
for her family to know who your are, where you came from and to know how your past impacts you now.

Use this knowledge to improve ourselves and families for the future. Most of all so that her family
could be proud of their heritage.

Rebecca was most proud of her grandchildren. You could often find her at Franny's baseball games, teaching
Jimena a new craft, spending time with Mikey and hearing about Joel's accomplishments.

Rebecca has been reunited in heaven with her father Isaac Lovato, sister Denise Lovato,
brother Joseph (Chepo) Lovato and many others. Rebecca is survived by her son Jesus Lovato (Josefina),
grandchildren Joel Alvarez, Mikey, Franny, Jimena Lovato, godson Carlos Corrales (Yajaira), goddaughters
Christina Corrales and Zina Salcedo. Also survived by her mother Julia Torres, sister Cynthia Acosta,
Ursula Hernandez (Martin),Cathy Hernandez, Michelle Cabral (Heribeto) brother, Richard Lovato (Patricia),
sister Julie Lovato and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews to name.

A celebration of life will be held Sunday September 13, 2020 between 4:00pm - 6:00pm at
Larkin Mortuary 260 E South Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111.

I was deeply saddened when I watched the video Rebecca shared in the hospital. To see her suffering and expressing her love for everyone made me cry. When I heard of her passing, my thoughts immediately were of her sisters, Jesus, Chepina, and mother. My heart ached for you all. She was so kind and loving. You're all in my prayers. She took serious pride and care of all those she loved. She touched my heart in such a beautiful way. A genuine person. Deepest condolences.

- Lisa Gallegos

May God bless her family and bring them comfort. I will miss Rebecca and her wonderful stories. Each time I sat with her, she mez-morized me with her storytelling. There was something about how she talked that I would be spellbound by her. She was such a beauty inside and out. I am honored to have been one of her friends. We didn't get to spend a lot of time together, but I will treasure those times. She co-produced a beautiful and spectacular documentary about one of Utah's Latina artist.

Rebecca was a wonderful woman that I had the pleasure of meeting when we worked together. She was so sweet and we became great friends. We shared a passion for crafts, specifically cross stitching and would share our work with one another. Although we no longer worked together we remained friends on social media and spoke often. I will truly miss her.

Rebecca was my dear friend . I worked with her at Connexion Point and during that time she became family to me . When life got hard for me she helped me and she encouraged me to always do better for myself and to always know that I can accomplish anything . I always would tell her how much I admired her courage and appreciated all the love she always showed me . She showed me that anything is possible as a female and you can make it through anything . She was a person who I would run to for advise and someone who believed in me. I will forever hold her in my heart . To her family Myself and my family are keeping you in our prayers . Rebecca is now an Angel in heaven just as she was here on earth .
