Rebecca "Beccy" L. McQuary, 59, of Idaho Falls died February 1, 2016 at The Gables of Ammon from the insidious complications of early-onset Alzheimer's. Beccy was born in Pocatello, ID on December 6, 1956 to Rex Leo and Leonora Elizabeth (Emory) Duke and was raised in Pocatello with her two brothers Gregory Miles Duke and Ronald Rex Duke where she graduated from Highland High School in 1975. While working at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, Beccy met her husband John, they fell in love and were married on July 16, 1977. They have four children: Barrie Jo, Ryan, Curtis and Tawnie.

Beccy cherished her children and loved to "get something to eat" on Friday nights with them and John. She also liked to travel and camp with them in the family RV and was a talented homemaker who enjoyed sewing and making beautiful craft items to make her house a home for her family. Beccy had a beautiful spirit that was felt by all including her pets that she adored. In October 2014 Barrie Jo and Brandon blessed Beccy with her first grandchild, Indra. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and faithfully served in many callings. She particularly loved working with the youth in the church.

Beccy is survived by John, her husband of 38 years; daughter: Barrie Jo Moss (Brandon) of Boise; son Ryan of Idaho Falls; son Curtis of Idaho Falls; daughter Tawnie Moss (Jared) of Logan, UT; granddaughter Indra; mother Leonora and brother Gregory. She was preceded in death by her father and brother Ronald.
