Becki R. (Little) Marjomaki, 52, of Big Bay, passed away peacefully at her home on December 16, 2016 surrounded by her loving family and animals following a courageous 21-month long battle with cancer. Becki was born on July 27, 1964 in Marquette, daughter of Richard and Janice (Koepp) Little. She was a 1982 graduate of Marquette Senior High School. Becki grew up loving life, enjoyed caring for her animals, fishing, camping and anything to do with being in nature. She worked as a skilled, caring and compassionate phlebotomist for nearly 30 years, serving Marquette General Hospital and Family Care Doctors office. Becki had a rare eye disease which caused her to have five corneal transplants and eventually stop working for the hospital. Becki was a tough, honest and brave woman. She never complained while staring cancer in the face and she never gave up her battle. Becki married Kirk Marjomaki on October 26, 1985 at the Redeemer Lutheran Church in Marquette and they spent 31 wonderful years together. They settled in Marquette and lovingly raised two boys. Kirk and Becki recently bought the Picture Bay Motel which Becki managed. She loved to garden, walk her dogs, go to camp with family and friends, sitting by the campfire and enjoying her beverage. Becki enjoyed music and camping and loved to go to music festivals. She spent years going to the Hodag country music festival and enjoyed working security while camping at the Hiawatha music festival. Becki was a spirited competitor. She was a shouting, fist-pumping Packer fan who attended several games through the years. She enjoyed years of playing in the Marquette pool league, Big Bay horseshoe and cribbage leagues. Becki's dream came true when, in 2015, her husband and kids bought her a 1964 Ford Mustang which topped off her bucket list. Becki was a devoted wife, loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece and cousin. She is survived by her parents, Richard and Janice (Koepp) Little of the Halfway Village; husband, Kirk; sons, Wayne and Kirk of Marquette; sisters, Tessie (Al) Miller of Channing, Cori (Mike) Mckevill of Ishpeming Township and Novella (Dean) Parker of Newberry; auntie, Darlene Herkins of Marquette; uncle, Sonny Koepp of Marquette; aunt, Dawn Little of Montpelier, VT; and several nieces and nephews and friends and strangers she shared so much love with. Preceding her in death were her grandparents, Richard H. and Beryl Little and Emil and Ethel Koepp; her in-laws, James Sr. and Sheila Marjomaki; and an uncle, Pierce Jonathon Little. The family will receive visitors at the Canale-Tonella Funeral Home on Wednesday, December 21, beginning at 4:00 p.m. until the time of service at 6:00 p.m., Rev. Leon Jarvis will officiate. A dinner reception will follow the service in the funeral home. The Canale-Tonella Funeral Home is assisting the family where memories of Becki may be shared at canalefuneral.com.
