On July 15,2020, Rebecca "Becky", at age 90, received her wings and was called home by the Lord after suddenly losing the battle to pneumonia and kidney failure. Becky was born May 27th, !930 in McAllen, TX the daughter of Salvador and Florinda Gomez. Becky was known for her incredible ability to create delicious food. A talent and passion she passed on to her children. But, if you want all of her kitchen secret's, you know you are going to have to talk to Frankie! A few of her passions were cooking, sewing, collecting dolls, buying kitchen supplies, and praying the rosary. She left behind enough pots, pans, dishes, and kitchen supplies to fill many restaurants. On March 16th, 1953 she married her best friend and love Carl Humbert Scalise. In 1984, her husband Carl opened up Mama Mia Pizzeria, where many of her recipes will continue to fill hungry bellies and warm hearts! She is survived by the love of her life Carl Humbert Scalise. She felt it was God's grace that allowed her to be survived by her six children Madeline (Mike) James, Carl E. (Patricia) Scalise, Frank Scalise, Linda Scalise, John (Mandy) Scalise, and Gina (Gary) Palmer. She is also survived by her beautiful grandchildren Justin, Heather, Vanessa, Karli, Ashley, Bianca, Jonathan, Jacqueline, Cameryn, and Beba as well as her great-grandchild Jessie. Becky was world renowned for not holding back her opinion. She had a knack for telling it like it is. She always told you the truth whether you wanted to hear it or not. She was genuine to a fault, a pussy cat at heart (or lion) who sugar coated nothing. We will miss her dearly, but we know she is happy and will be looking down on all of us ensuring we continue her legacy of filling hungry bellies, and on occasion not passing up the chance to tell it like it is. She has arrived at the Lord's doorstep with her favorite Sunday shoes fully dolled up and ready to be received with the warm wholesome smiles of her parents, brothers and sisters, and all the Lord's angels.
