Rebecca Marie Pincock

May 29, 1979-May 13, 2016

After a very brief and unexpected struggle with bacterial meningitis, Rebecca Marie Pincock returned home to her Heavenly Father on May 13, 2016 with her family by her side. She was 36 years old.

She was born in Provo, Utah and miraculously survived a serious case of pneumonia in her first week of life.  She was raised in Maryland and played on the varsity track and field hockey teams.  She was also an enthusiastic participant of the Best Buddies program. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Elementary Education.

She married her childhood sweetheart, Andrew Pincock, on July 24, 1999.  They met when they were 14 and knew almost instantly that they would spend eternity together. During the next several years, Andrew and Becca lived in Maryland, Texas, and Virginia, before moving to Utah in 2008. They are the parents of five wonderful children.

All those who knew Becca know that she was full of life and enthusiasm.  She loved running through the sand and playing in the ocean.  She loved spending time at the lake with family and friends.  She was determined and hard-working, with a zest for life and an adventurous spirit.  She loved child birth and was a trained Doula, helping mothers bring new babies into the world.  Becca was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served in various positions helping youth and children.  As a full-time mother she home-schooled her five children, a job to which she gave her entire heart. Her life was filled with service and her last act of service was being an organ donor so that others may have the continued blessing of life which had been taken from her at such an early age.

More than anything, Becca loved her husband and her children and was a devoted mother.  She gave everything that she had to be the best mother and wife that she could be.  On Mother’s Day, less than a week before she died, she publicly expressed to her family and friends her deepest feelings in the following words: “I mess up in a thousand ways a million times a day, but I will always be their mother, forever, and so I keep trying.  And thank goodness they keep letting me.  I love them with everything I am and everything I hope to be.”  That is Rebecca Pincock.

She is survived by her husband, Andrew and their five children, Tyler (15), Robby (13), Annie (10), Luke (6), and Emma (2), along with her parents, Robert and MaryAnn Parsons, her seven brothers and sisters, and of course many extended family members.
