Beth enriched the lives of countless children as a passionate teacher and educational diagnostician. Her dedication to her profession extended far beyond the classroom walls, as she tirelessly advocated for her students and their individual needs.

Beth was a woman of many talents and hobbies. She found immense joy in the art of sewing, creating beautiful and intricate quilts that reflected her unique creativity donating many to local charities.
