Our dear wife, mother, grandmother and friend passed away on Sunday June 27 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born August 4, 1940 to Wells & Pauline McBride of Hyrum, UT. When she was 6 months old, her parents moved out to The Browning Ranch, where her father worked with the cowboys and her mother cooked and did the wash for them. They lived there in a sheep camp until she was 5 years old.
She went to school at Lincoln Elementary and graduated from South Cache High School. Neddie was a cheerleader and sang in several different musical groups. This is where she met her husband, Vernon (Speed) Pitcher. They were later married in the Logan LDS Temple on May 28, 1958.
She is the mother of Michelle, Michael, Marc, Marnie, Matthew, and Mitchell and the grandmother of 24.
She has held many church callings. She and her husband have been on many church missions. One of which, they spent 7 ½ years in the Colorado State Prisons. They thoroughly loved being behind bars :). The last mission they served as photographers for the church's media center.
They have had the opportunity to travel to most of the United States and several countries overseas. In July of 2018 they returned to Nibley, UT after 50 years of living in Colorado. They love the community they live in; saying "it's like living in a piece of heaven".
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Nibley 10th Ward Chapel at 2825 South 1000 West starting at 11:00a.m. on Saturday, July 3, 2021
"It was so fun to know her. I loved babysitting. I'm glad you both were able to come see randy at olive garden. I remember when she had a near death experience 50 some years ago when she said she was in a beautiful garden. She also said she would never be afraid to die after that experience. I would so LOVE to talk to her now and see if it was the same. All my love and wishes go out to you and your family. Suzanne Maughan Wilson "
"I haven't known Neddie for very long, but in such a short time she has had a tremendous impact on my life. Every time that I saw her, she would give me a big hug and tell me that she loved me. I have no doubt that she is free of the pain that she endured during the end of her mortal life. I was honored to be able to see a tour of her photography and witness the genuine love that her husband, Vern, has for her. He showed me every picture that she had taken hanging in their home and would say how proud he was of her. She is truly soaring with the eagles and running with the animals in heaven. I love you Neddie. Until we meet
