Rebecca “Becky” Pryor

Rebecca “Becky” J. Pryor, 76, of Zanesville, passed away at 6:01 a.m. at home, Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019, after a very private and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born March 10, 1942, in Carey, the daughter of “Jymer” Leon Charles and Marguerite Montague Mullholand.

Becky was a member of St. Thomas Catholic Church and retired from Genesis Registration after 25 years of service. She was a wonderful loving mother who was witty and was an avid reader. She loved going to the beach, enjoyed sitting on her deck watching the hummingbirds and loved sweets. She especially loved spending time with her family and being a surrogate grandmother to three very special children in her life.

She  is survived by her husband, Jerry Pryor; two children, Patrick Pryor and Andrea (Todd Smith) Pryor Callow; two step-grandsons, Wesley Smith and Wyatt (Linzy) Smith; a step-great granddaughter, Emery Smith; a sister, Margaret Ann “Meg” (William “Bill”) Harrison; beloved nieces and nephews; her loving surrogate granddaughter, Haleigh Phillips, as well as her very special friend, Julie (Andy) Zigo and their son, Casey.

In addition to her parents, Becky was preceded in death by three sisters, Dorothy June Buckingham, Wanda Mullholand and Barbara Dible; two brothers, Charles “Buzzy” Mullholand and Paul Mullholand; and a special surrogate grandson, Aaron Phillips.

Visitation will be held from 2-6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, with the funeral service to follow at 6 p.m. with the Rev. Thomas Kumau officiating at Bryan and Hardwick Funeral Home, 2318 Maple Avenue, Zanesville.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Genesis Hospice & Palliative Care.
