Rebecca A. Green

August 26, 1972 — March 10, 2024

Kimberly, ID

Rebecca “Becky” Arbogast Green was born to Sandi and Gerry Arbogast in Burley, Idaho, on August 26, 1972.  She joined big sister Nikki, and together they had a truly wonderful childhood – playing with the neighbor kids until it got dark in the summer, ice skating on a nearby pond, and lots and lots of pets.  Becky loved to go camping with her family, and a special place in the Pioneer Mountains remained her favorite place in the world her entire life. 

Becky decided to become a pharmacist and received her PharmD from ISU in 1998.  That set her on a path to meet the love of her life, David Green, thanks to the persistence of mutual friends with whom Becky had attended pharmacy school.  After school and her pharmacy residency at the Boise VA, she followed Dave to his native Kentucky.  When Becky learned her mom was sick, she decided to return home to Idaho to be with her.  Dave said he would be right behind her, and he was.  They married in Stanley in 2002.  Becky loved her life with Dave.  She loved camping, and especially lively chats around campfires.  She loved hiking, and especially their annual backpacking trip with friends exploring the Idaho backcountry.  She loved traveling, especially to Disneyland, the Oregon Coast, and her girl trips to Mexico. 

Becky and Dave have two amazing, beautiful girls--Abby and Ava.  Becky did everything she could to ensure her girls had the kind of childhood she had, including lots of time outside, camping, and lots and lots of pets.  Becky loved introducing her girls to the joys of travel, and she especially loved infecting them with a serious love of all things Disney.  But mostly she loved spending time with them, even if it was just snuggling under a blanket to watch a movie. 

As a pharmacist, Becky worked for over twenty years at the Anticoagulation Clinic in Twin Falls.  She loved being able to get to know “my people” as she called them, and she cared for many of them for years.  She enjoyed sharing stories, trading recipes, and talking about her girls.  She had a huge role in training pharmacy students and residents, giving back to the profession that had given so much to her. 

It can be hard to really capture a person in a few paragraphs, and Becky is no exception.  She always had an infectious laugh, and was up for any adventure.  She loved dancing to 70’s music.  She loved reading books on her patio swing.  She loved gardening.  She loved decorating her home, and cheering on Abby at swim meets and Ava at gymnastics competitions.  She loved hanging out with family and friends.  She loved watching Dave learn to play the guitar.  She loved having her toes in the sand on a beach somewhere.  She loved life. 

Becky passed away peacefully at home on March 10, 2024, following a brief illness, surrounded by family and her pets. Her family would like to thank everyone for the incredible outpouring of love and support during this time, with a special thanks to Becky’s team at St. Luke’s and Hospice Visions. According to Becky’s wishes, she did not want a viewing or formal service.  She wanted everyone to gather, share stories, and celebrate her life. Becky’s family will be hosting an open house at their home on Saturday, March 23.  Details will be available on the Rosenau Funeral Home web site. Once the snow melts in her beloved mountains, there will be a celebration of life and scattering of her ashes this summer. Knowing her, she would prefer everyone to remember her when they are doing something they love, with the ones they love.
