Rebecca Lee Pfrimmer

November 5, 1952 ~ January 17, 2024 (age 71) 71 Years Old


Rebecca Lee “Becky” Pfrimmer died peacefully in her sleep January 17, 2024, following a brief illness and complications from MS.

Born in Helena, MT, Becky loved the outdoors and split her time between homes in Spokane, Washington, and Priest Lake, Idaho, which she loved to share with the many friends who visited her there and with her “dog boys,” Cody and Bud.

Becky graduated from Montana State University and became an RN to “support her habits,” which included running, marathoning, skiing, snowshoeing, as well as mountain and road biking.

Becky began her nursing career at Sacred Heart Medical Center. Her stories of driving across Montana for clinicals in her beloved VW bug entertained many people. She worked at Sacred Heart in many critical care areas, including ICU, PACU, IV Therapy, and the Emergency Room. She was knowledgeable and worked diligently to keep up various high-level accreditations. Becky also shared her skills and prodigious knowledge by teaching clinicals for the ADN program at Spokane Community College. She was beloved by coworkers, who appreciated her abilities and her wit, and by students, who benefited from her experiences and keen observations.

After many years in the Providence system Becky moved to Multicare at Deaconess Medical Center from which she retired. The new nurses she precepted there still speak of her in the highest terms. After retirement, she spent her time doing practically anything she could do in the great outdoors.

Becky was a passionate feminist who was an early participant in Spokane’s Pride movement. She was also an advocate for numerous progressive causes and women’s issues. 

Above all, Becky was a fierce friend who was always curious and loved intense conversation. She shared her strong opinions with love and enthusiasm. Becky made every person she loved feel important, respected, smart, and talented. She stayed in touch with friends and family across the nation, often texting or calling to talk about sports or just to check-in. An avid sports fan, Becky rooted hardest for all the girl’s teams all the time and for “her teams,” the Seahawks, Gonzaga, and LSU, which were, in her estimation, the only teams worth rooting for!

Becky was preceded in death by her parents Jack and Emily Pfrimmer of Whitefish, MT, and her brother Oscar David “Davy.”Her loving survivors include her sister Nancy Travale (Bob), brother Robert Pfrimmer (Faith), and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends and family members honor Becky by donating to a favorite charity of their own.
