    Becky was a really sweet lady. So pleasant and kind. It was always such a treat to visit with her. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carla.

    I remember Becky from the years the animation department was still on the main lot. She was a REALLY nice person, and was always willing to talk about her career at the studio, and working with Walt. It was sad when the department shut down……But she was a very pleasant, friendly lady.

    RIP Becky

    I wish there were more Disney “Old Timer” interviews on here. I’d love to know more about Becky. Thanks for posting the Obit. My condolences to her family.

    I once met Becky Fallberg while taking a tour through the old ink and paint department. This was just after Eisner took over. The animators had been thrown out of the old animation building, making way for bigwheels. She was painting limited edition cels. She talked about the changes on the lot, how everyone used to be so friendly. She said the new people wouldn’t give someone like her the time of day. It was quite sad, seeing someone who’d spent their entire life at a company seeing it change the way it did. I didn’t remember her name, but I recognized her by the picture you posted. She seemed to be a very nice lady.

    This article caught my attention because she started as a receptionist (like me) and moved up in the company. She is an inspiration to me.

    I worked with Becky for a long long time thru unimaginable change in the craft of animation. She always welcomed the challenges that came with each new film and new crew. As a producer, we always knew that if we could get the drawings and animation done and get it to Becky and her ink and paint department, then you finish the movie on time. They were some of the funniest and most professional people i have ever met at the studio. I miss them and i will miss Becky most of all.
