Katie Ella Becenti

On Thursday February 18, 2021 Katie Ella Becenti joined her Grandpa in heaven. Katie was born September 9, 1984 to Ron and Kathy Robbins. Katie grew up in the Farmington area and graduated from PVHS in 2002. In 2005, Katie joined the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office and began a career that she loved. Katie was blessed to have two families: her blood family and her law enforcement family. Katie’s family happily expanded with the arrival of her daughter Abby and her son Tate. In 2012, Katie promoted to detective and became a great asset to her unit. Her family expanded even more when she met Shaun, the love of her life, in 2017. They were blessed to add a daughter, Olivia, and son, Isaiah, to their family.

Katie was an absolute rock star in everything she did. She loved, cared and served deeply. She was a dedicated mother as well as a hardworking detective. Her beautiful smile, desserts, and birthday surprises will be extremely missed.

Katie is survived by her husband Shaun and children Abby, Tate, and Olivia. Parents Ron Robbins and Kathy (Ken) Chipman, grandma Helen Suitor, siblings Opy (Crystal) Robbins, Geana (Sean) Renfro, Ronni, (Ty) Newman, and Steve (Michelle) Robbins. Brother-in-law, Shane Becenti, sister-in-law, Terra (Christopher) Rosen, and sister-in-law, Tonia Becenti. And many other close members of her two families.

She was proceeded in death by her grandparents Otis Paul and Bettie Jane Haws.
