Stacy Becker Coyle

Stacy Becker Coyle was born on May 14, 1977 in Bakersfield. At the age of 41, she went to be in the arms of Jesus on January 31, 2019.

Stacy was the daughter of Rod and Carolyn Becker. She grew up in Shafter. She attended Kiddie Kollege at the Shafter Mennonite Brethren Church, the church she attended until college. She went to the North Kern Christian School in Wasco for three years, followed by third through eighth grade at Rio Bravo Greeley. She then went on to Shafter High School.

She participated in AWANA, sports, music, drill teams, cheerleading and dance throughout her school years. After graduation from Shafter High School, she went on to be a pre-med major at Fresno Pacific University. She graduated with her degree and did her post graduate work at California Central College in San Luis Obispo, studying fetal medicine and ultrasonography. Then she did her internship at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.

After 2 1/2 years she began her career in the Los Angeles area. This is where she met her husband, Jason Coyle. They were married on the Central Coast, lived another year in L.A., and moved to the Phoenix area, where they resided the past 12 years.

In February 2016, Stacy was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. She fought the disease courageously with much drive and determination. God relieved her of her suffering on Jan. 31, 2019. She "fought the good fight, she finished the race, and she kept the faith" -- II Timothy 4:7.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Sam and Melinda Becker, and John Yerke. She is survived by her loving husband, Jason, and their three precious children: Ethan 11, Dominic 9, and Noelle 7. Also survived by her grandmother, Erna Vander Kooi and husband David; her parents, Rod and Carolyn Becker; sister Michelle and husband Wes Rogers, and their children: Jeff and wife Mallory, Libby, Emma, Sam, Bryan, and grandniece Raelynn. Also, uncles, aunts, cousins, and many wonderful friends.

She will be greatly missed, for she had such a positive impact on so many. She had an extremely sweet, kind spirit, and was loved by everyone. However, she is now cancer free in her permanent home with her Savior, in Heaven.

A memorial service was held Feb. 9 at Mission Community Church, Gilbert, Ariz.
