Rebecca “Nona Becky” Lynn Clobes, 58, passed away on September 8, 2020 at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center in Hutchinson, KS. She was born February 17, 1962 in Liberal, KS, the daughter of George and Karalee (King) Clobes.
Becky worked much of her career as a Material Handler at Agco, and most recently worked for a short time at Home Depot. In the 1990’s, she owned a pet store in McPherson called Kansas Safari. She attended First Church of the Nazarene.
Becky loved her animals, but not just any animals. Besides the many dogs and cats that she owned throughout her life, she had several pet monkeys, a black bear cub, a bat, a wallaby, and even a pot bellied pig named Arnold.
During the summer months she would spend most of her free time working in the yard and vegetable garden. She loved to grow tomatoes and other vegetables to give away to the family and had recently started to raise bees.
She was a fun, energetic person who could make friends easily. She was an eternal optimist up to the very end. She was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend.
Most of all she loved her grandchildren. She was always doing wild and crazy things with them because as she used to say “the only rule at Nona’s house is there are no rules.” Ice cream for breakfast? Sure. Mountain Dew just before bed time? Why not...
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Becky is survived by her son, Zachary Clobes and his wife Myroslava; a daughter, Nichole Teater and her husband Jeffery; brothers, Donald and Mark Clobes; sisters, Debbie Wilczak and Sherri Goertz; six grandchildren, Acacia, Adelaide Clobes, Madison, Alayna, Brooklyn and William Teater.
There will be no public visitation as cremation was chosen. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and can be sent in care of Hutchinson Funeral Chapel, 300 E. 30th Ave. Hutchinson, KS 67502.
