Rebecca Aikey Mourned; Was With AmeriCorps

Rebecca Aikey


Rebecca Aikey (Rebecca Winzer) went home to be with the Lord on June 17, 2019, while serving with AmeriCorps in Sitka. She was 26.
Rebecca was loved by so many and her sweet, loving, kind, and intelligent personality will be deeply missed.
Rebecca was born on May 27, 1993, to Judy and Carl Winzer in Simi Valley, California. The family moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, when Rebecca was 8 years old. She loved the beauty of Northern Idaho and had many fond memories spending time outdoors with her family.
She also excelled academically and graduated from Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy in 2011.
After graduating from high school, Rebecca attended the University of Idaho and was awarded the Goldwater Scholarship in her sophomore year. She also was a member of the honor society Phi Eta Sigma and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s of science with a major in physics and a minor in mathematics.
She also fulfilled all of the pre-med requirements and gained admission to the prestigious WWAMI medical program. She was enrolled in the program until she took a one-year break to work with the AmeriCorps.
Rebecca was loved by so many and will live on in the memories of her husband Mark Aikey and their son James; her father Carl and mother Sue; her mother Judy; and siblings Sara, Kira and Kate. She is currently reunited with her dear brother James, who passed away in 2012.
