It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Rebecca Jean Yadon, lovingly known as Becky, on October 20, 2023. Born on July 22, 1976, in Sidney, MT. Rebecca was a beacon of dedication, loyalty, courage, and reliability to all who knew her. A resident of West Haven, Utah, for the past two years, Rebecca's life was a testament to the strength of her character and her unwavering commitment to the people and values she held dear.
Rebecca was a devoted wife to John Yadon, with whom she shared a beautiful life since their marriage on July 27, 1996. In her professional life, Rebecca was a part time bookkeeper in the engineering industry for 17 years. In 2011 while also maintaining her career as a bookkeeper, she helped her husband start the athletics program at Watersprings School (formerly Calvary Chapel Christian School) where she coached girls' basketball for elementary and junior high as well as assisted coaching for the high school girls. In 2020 she "retired" from coaching so that she could spend more time traveling to warmer weather to visit her children at college.
Her dedication to her family was evident in everything she did. Rebecca loved watching her children Uriah and Abigail play sports and cherished the peaceful weeks on the farm where she grew up, alongside her father, Arthur Paulson, and her husband and children. Rebecca was known to turn online shopping at QVC and discussing talent shows into a weekly bonding time with her sister. She enjoyed working out with her CrossFit family and taking trips south just to relax by a pool with family and friends.
Rebecca is survived by her husband John Yadon; her father Arthur Paulson; her sister Michele Olson; her children Uriah and Abigail Yadon; her mother-in-law Dorita Yadon; her brothers-in-law Jack Yadon, Garry Yadon, and Jay Pinkerton; and her sisters-in-law Sharon Yadon, Corrina Yadon, and Jane Pinkerton.
She was preceded in death by her mother Jacqueline Paulson; her brother-in-law Bernie Olson, and her father-in-law Garry Yadon.
