Memories Timeline


  1. Beth shined her light on many people. So upbeat, fun and adventurous. She will be remembered very endearingly and her hearts are heavy by her loss.

  2. Witty, funny, generous, caring…these attributes come to mind when we remember Beth. She was truly her own special person. We are grateful to have known her for so many years. Our hearts are broken. She will be missed. Peace be with you, dear Beth.

  3. I always enjoyed the time I spent with Beth. She was so clever, and matched me retort for retort. There was never a boring conversation with her. I’ll miss our visits and dinners, and pray for peace and grace for her dear family.

  4. Beth was a light in many lives with her subtle sense of fun and her intelligent seeking of information on news and current events which she shared with others via emails and where she frequently attached her own photos of beautiful flowers. Her love of animals was apparent in her adopting and caring for her beloved shelter dog. Beth was loved by her friends and family and will be missed and lovingly remembered by those privileged to have known her.”

  5. Sending love and beautiful thoughts of Beth, and the way she lived, wrote, communicated, cared, and loved with great intentionality. I pray for her peace as well as for all of you.
    Vicki, niece of Verna McGaughey

  6. Beth was so intentional and precise in everything she did–the way she listened, wrote, communicated with others, shared freely of her time, talents, and research skills. She was so kind and aware of others. I am sending peace to her, and peace to all of you who loved her and so wished for her peace of mind in life.
    Love and prayers, Vicki Tutterow, niece of Verna McGaughey

  7. I’m so sad to hear of Beth’s passing. I new her for a long time and she was a great gal. She always had a compliment for everyone she met and was able to find something nice to say about them.
    She had a big heart for all of our 4 legged friends and took their loss, just as hard as we did.
    And, I was always amazed at how fast she could come up with the answers, when watching Jeopardy.
    You will be missed sweet girl, but I hope you have found peace. Love, Nina

  8. Beth was such a good friend to all of us at Bella Vista! She was a delight to be around and a brought joy to all she knew. She loved trivia, Hangman and Scattergories. She loved socials and was very active here. She was witty and fun and so very smart. The whole community feels her loss and will miss her dearly.

  9. Dear Beth, I hope you are at peace now. I loved our times together when you first moved here. Wish there could have Bern more of them.
