Rebecca Saiz Metcalf, affectionately known to most as “Becky”, “Mom”, “Grandma” and “Aunt Becky”, entered heaven’s gates to abide with her Heavenly Father on September 27, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada with her family by her side.
Rebecca was born on November 24, 1944 in Raton, New Mexico to Joe and Beatrice Saiz.
Becky, to all who knew her, was a unique and caring individual who touched the lives of many. She also had a sassiness about her that was contagious. By those who were fortunate enough to know her, she is already missed.
Rebecca grew up with her family in Ely, Nevada. She graduated from White Pine High School in Ely, Nevada on May 28, 1964. After high school she attended nursing school in Elko, Nevada where she obtained her degree as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She worked for many years as a nurse in the White Pine community at different facilities. Her passion was to care for others and that is what she devoted her entire life to.
Rebecca married Neal Ainsworth in 1965 in Ely, Nevada. They were happily married for 25 years. Out of her marriage to Neal were born two sons, Jerry and Danny Ainsworth. She was a family woman and loved her family more than anything. Her boys were her life!
After the passing of her husband Neal in 1990, she was remarried to Terry Metcalf in 1997. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, crocheting and playing the penny slot machines in the casinos.
Rebecca is survived by her sons, Jerry (Michelle) Ainsworth and Danny Ainsworth of Las Vegas, NV; her sisters Dollie King of Bullhead City, AZ and Ramona Scott of Mesquite, NV; her brothers Richard (Linda) Saiz of Overton, NV and Joe (Judy) Saiz of Reno, NV; her 3 granddaughters Destinie Ainsworth, Faith Ainsworth and Tiffany Ainsworth of Las Vegas, NV and her great granddaughter Olivia Ross of Las Vegas, NV; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Rebecca was preceded in death by her husband Neal Ainsworth in 1990 and her second husband, Terry Metcalf in 2016.
The family invites you to attend a celebration of Becky’s life which will be held at Palm Southwest Mortuary 7979 W. Warm Springs Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89113 on October 30, 2017 at 3:00pm.
A time of gathering will follow immediately after the service with refreshments.
