Becky was born on May 28, 1977 at Redlands Community Hospital in Redlands, CA to Ted and Francie Yarbrough.  

 

She attended Redlands Christian School and Calvary Chapel Christian School where she graduated valedictorian.  She worked summers in logistics for the US Forest Service at the Del Rosa station in San Bernardino, CA.  She also began teaching piano lessons when she was 16.   

 

She then attended California Baptist University where she graduated with honors with a BA in English.  She also studied music and performed as an accompanist with the traveling group "Light!".  

 

She began working at ESRI, Inc. in Redlands, where she stayed for almost 10 years as a documentation writer.  She also performed in numerous musical theater productions and taught piano lessons during that time.  

 

Becky married Vince Pellegrini on February 3, 2007.  They continued living in CA where Becky had numerous jobs including wedding photographer, church choir director, coffee shop owner/operator, living history teacher, and waitress.  She also played piano and sang at church.  

Vince and Becky left CA and moved to Washington State in 2013.  Becky worked at a restaurant in downtown Seattle, as a bartender and steward on a harbor cruise ship, and as a front desk employee at a salon and spa before settling in at her job at BBCS, Inc. writing software documentation.  She also taught private voice and piano lessons, and directed and performed with two oldies a cappella singing groups, The Harborettes and The HoneyBees.  In 2020 they bought a home in Washougal, WA.

 

Becky was hard working and loved to be outdoors gardening, playing with her dog, or mowing the lawn.  She kept busy with numerous different crafts and loved making gifts for others.     

Becky loved Jesus and her family, and wanted nothing more than to show love to others the best she could with God's help.

She is survived by her husband and best friend, Vince, her mom, Francie, her brother and sister-in-law, Andy and Lisa, her seven nieces and nephews Rachel, Sarah-Noel, Becca, Abby, Timothy, Naomi and Miriam, and her yellow lab, Parker.  She is also survived by her mother-in-law, Leslie, sister-and-brother-in-law Lisa and Gary, and her niece Isabella.  Becky's dad, Ted, went on before her in 2009, as well as her grandparents that she knew, Mary, Orvil and Virginia.

"You don't have a soul... you are a soul.  You have a body." - C.S Lewis

"Behind and before me is God, and I have no fear." - Helen Keller

Revelation 21:4, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Romans 8:35-39, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

A Message From Becky:  If you do not have a personal relationship with God and want to know more about Jesus, please talk to Vince, my brother Andy, or a Christian friend.  It's never too late to know the love and peace that God has given me throughout my journey.  Life isn't perfect, but mine was blessed beyond measure because of the love of God, lived out in front of me daily in my Mom, Vince, Andy and many others.
