I never called her by her full name; to me, she was always Beth. A dear and devoted friend, mother, faithful member of her church and crafter extraordinaire; Beth was one special and talented lady.
As a co-worker of Beth’s at Kimball Elementary and Grant Smith Health Insurance Agency, I got to know the kind and devoted person she was. You could always count on Beth. Smart, and often with a solution to any problem, she was someone you could lean on. Not to mention the fact that I don’t believe there was anything she couldn’t do: sew, cook, craft, write, plan, fix, etc. — she was a first-class problem-solver with a heart of gold. And as such, Beth was the one to turn to for answers. Whatever you needed, you always knew she would be right there to offer sound advice and generous help.
As a writer for Blue Water Healthy Living, Beth was always able to offer up a catchy title, photo option, or new idea. She had the unique way of making you feel cared for in her presence. I know the years she spent with the students, staff, and families of the Port Huron Area School District felt that way. Along with her family at the Grant Smith Health Insurance Agency, we will all miss her dearly.
I’m so thankful to have gotten the opportunity to know such a wonderful person.
