“Who else can say that for over 4 decades they put smiles on the faces of their customers with their delicious creations? Barbara, the owner of North Ridgeville’s staple, Becker’s Donuts could. I’m sure that many of us have special memories of opening that white box after church on Sundays, treating coworkers on a Friday morning or maybe just sitting with a coffee and a donut on a weekday morning in her shop.
“Thank you Barbara for your tireless work, friendship and for being a part of our community. It meant the world to so many!”
