It is with great sadness that we share this news with those who may not be aware of it:
On Tuesday, January 8, 2019 Rebecca Trevino, NSP Director of Training and Development, suffered a brain hemorrhage and went home to be with the Lord at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City. Rebecca was only 52 years old at the time of her passing. Her husband Nando was with her at the time of her death. Rebecca was a friend to all she met and was instrumental in bringing NSP’s growth and education into focus with the 21st century.
Rebecca was a four-time cancer survivor and began running full, and half, marathons at age 50, including being a finisher at the 2018 Chicago Marathon.
She is survived by husband Nando, along with their sons Adam and Bradford and daughter, Sarah Nicole.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Rebecca’s name to The Parklands of Floyd Fork, www.theparklands.org/make-a-donation.html, where a bench will be built in The Parklands in Rebecca’s memory.
Both of us still have not yet come to terms with Rebecca’s passing. Actually, on the day of Rebecca’s passing, Dick was on the phone with Rebecca for their weekly phone call, and he may have been the last person to speak with her before she phoned her husband, Nando, and asked him to come and take her to the hospital. The last thing she said to Dick was “Let’s pray for Nature’s Sunshine,” and they both prayed together for the growth and success of NSP under its new leadership and its dedication to the leaders in the field. Dick continues to do this every day, as we are sure Rebecca does also.
We feel this quote by Robert Louis Stevenson sums up who Rebecca was and still is:
“The man is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.”
Rest in peace Rebecca – You may be gone from your earthly home but you will live on in the hearts of those who love you and cherish the time we shared with you. We’re sure you are chatting with our past members who preceded you on a daily basis!
