BAKER, La. — With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Rebecca 'Becky' Bond, the dedicated Communications Officer of the Mayor's Office in the City of Baker, Louisiana. Becky's sudden departure has left us all reeling with shock and sorrow.

As the heart of communication for our city, Becky's role was instrumental in fostering transparency, engagement, and unity within our community. Her commitment to excellence, paired with her dedication to serving the citizens of Baker, was unparalleled. No challenge was too great for Becky, and her tireless efforts have left an indelible mark on our city's communication landscape.

Beyond her professional responsibilities, Becky's warmth, kindness, and genuine concern for others endeared her to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She was not only a valued colleague but also a trusted friend and confidante.

Mayor Darnell Waites reflects on Becky's legacy, stating, "Becky's passion for her work and her dedication to our city were evident in every aspect of her life. Her presence will be deeply missed, and her contributions to our community will be remembered for years to come."
