We are so sorry about your loss. We will always remember the special Christmas dinners Beth would make for Justin. Somehow she made it seem like Salisbury steak should be a part of every Christmas meal.

Beth Ann was always a very cheery person. I remember her beautiful red hair!! She loved helping others and making life brighter for them! Loved having her as a friend on FaceBook and watching her grandchildren growing up. She loved her family!! She and her Uncle Jerry spent many summers at the ocean when he visited Florida with his mo and dad and over spring break when he was in college. He loved spending time with her. If Heaven has an ocean I am sure they are walking along the beach getting caught up!! Prayers and thoughts go with Stephen and Lisa and the grandchildren! Memories will keep smiles on their faces!! How fortunate we have all been to have had Beth Ann in our lives.
