Becky Lomaka

Position: Director of Grief Support and Education

Organization: O'Connor Mortuary


What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Anyone who knows Becky knows her as a ray of sunshine. Her smile and engaging demeanor radiate warmth and welcome. Becky has been pillar at O'Connor Mortuary as Director of Grief Support and Education for several years. She offers a compassion to grieving families gently yet firmly, giving encouragement to allay the healing process and finding peace. Prior to that, Becky was a staple in Orange County while at Age Well Senior Service, lending her talents to fund development and growth.

Why should this person be nominated
After moving to Orange County, Becky worked for Age Well for nearly 15 years. It was 4 1/2 years ago that she felt called to explore an opportunity with O’Connor Mortuary. History was made. At O’Connor, Becky serves a great role than she realizes. She is a top-level resource for health care partners and for the community at large for grief and end-of life education. She has been that “lit candle” or beacon of hope for families during their darkest hours when they face the insurmountable task of a sudden death of an elderly family member, or working through this process during the journey of a long term illness. She further leads community partners and love to be able to connect and help educate on death, dying and the bereavement process. Becky, we could make this journey without your guiding hand!
