On June 22, 2021, the Roquet family, friends, and the town of Cayucos lost the most wonderful woman and our matriarch, Rebecca Roquet (Party, Becky, Beck). Alongside her husband, Rick, her life’s work was owning and loving the Seaside Motel for 40 years.
She adored her family more than life itself and we adored her even more. Rick, her boys (Rusty and Rocky), daughters-in-law (Renée and Ali), grandbabies, as she called them, (Rooney + Henley, Reese + Ryan), brothers and sister, the Brezden family, and extended family (she always said, if you’re friends, you’re family) will forever miss her larger-than-life personality, laughter, and her heart of gold. She would do anything for anyone, at any time. She spent her life taking care of her family, entertaining thousands of guests, and she loved herself a good margarita on the patio.
Her happy place was tending to her garden and clipping the grass by hand with scissors while listening to talk radio and chatting with guests. We find comfort in imagining her wandering and admiring the flawless gardens where she is now. She enjoyed seashell hunting with her grandbabies and nothing was better than dancing with friends and family to the live band on the 4th of July. We promise to continue her legacy by planting flowers, drinking margaritas, and laughing with guests on the patio.
Services will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Cayucos on July 9 at 11 a.m., followed by a reception at the Sea Shanty shortly thereafter. We would love to celebrate her life with all who loved her.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Cask Gene Foundation (caskgene.org) in honor of her granddaughter, Rooney.
