Obituary

Obituary for Mary Ann Antoinette Becker (Dykty)

Mary Ann A. (Dykty) Becker, 78, passed away during the late hours of Saturday, February 20, 2021, in her Reading residence.

She was the wife of 24 years of Arthur Becker.

Born in Reading on December 14, 1942, in St. Joseph's Hospital, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Anna (Wojden) Dykty. She attended St. Mary's Parochial School, 12th & Spruce Sts., Reading. A 1960 graduate of Wilson High School, West Lawn, she attended Penn State Berks Campus.

Mary Ann was a member of the former St. Anthony of Padua Polish Catholic Church, Millmont, and became a member of St. John Baptist de la Salle Church upon the merger of the two churches.

She began her career in high school and after graduation as a secretary to George Beard at State Auto Insurance Agency, Reading, achieving an agent's license. After the birth of her children, she became a Tupperware Consultant under Hollenbush Parties, Orwigsburg, PA and Kissimmee Florida and continued for twenty-six years as a Tupperware manager. From 1992 through 2000, she was an operations manager for James Deichman/Raymond James Financial Services, Wyomissing. From 2000 until October 2015, she was employed by ParenteBeard Wealth Management, now known as Domani Wealth Management. She worked part-time for Dr. Cramp and Panache Deli.

Mary Ann served as president of West Wyomissing PTA for two terms, president for two terms of the Sacred Heart Society, Sacred Heart Church, West Reading, and president of the Wyomissing Area Civic Club, treasurer of the GFWC Past President Club, and treasurer of the Polish American Heritage Association of Berks County.

She was one of three Tupperware managers at Hollenbush Parties to introduce and launch the Tupperware Stack Cooker microwave cooking concept in the area.

In addition to her husband, Art, she is survived by two children: son, Robert Joseph Englebach, spouse of Frank Kutryb, of Wyomissing Hills; and daughter, Marjorie Ann Haile, wife of David L. Haile, of Reading; one step-son, Scott M. Becker of Oceanside, CA; two grandchildren, Colleen Gray, wife of Colin Gray, of Wyomissing; and Josef Haile of Reading. One sister, Fran, wife of John Moore. She loved her German Shepherd, Hannah, and her cats, Kalum and Kitty.

She enjoyed sewing, baking, gardening and going to the casino with Bob and Frank; she enjoyed hosting parties especially the swim parties for her children when they were young; her greatest joy was taking her grandchildren on trips to New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Ocean City, NJ, and all "those history excursions."

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, February 27, 2021, at 10 a.m. at St. John's Roman Catholic Church, 420 Holland Street, Shillington, PA 19607.

Words cannot express the sadness I felt at hearing the news yesterday of Mary Ann's passing. I have so many memories of our days with Tupperware. She was always a great friend. Our friendship extended way beyond Tupperware and only covid had prevented our periodic lunches and dinners. We spoke at Christmas and had planned to get together in the Spring, when things were better.. Her smile and energy lit up the room and I always looked forward to those times. We could talk for hours and I was always surprised by how much time had passed.
My sincere condolences to Art, Margy, and Bob. My thoughts and prayers are with you to give you strength in this time of great loss. Mary Ann will be missed terribly by all who knew her.

Whenever we would see Mary Ann- whether at Sacred Heart, St Anthony's , St. John's- or just out shopping- she always had a smile. She was a friend to everyone who knew her. We send sincere condolences.
