I am so sorry to hear of Beth’s passing. Beth and I used to sing together years ago in the church band at West Willow UMC and we also had both worked for Susquehanna Bank but in different areas. My deepest sympathy to the whole family and loved ones. I know how hard it is. May God comfort you during this difficult  time.

Rob, Christina & family ~ My heart is so heavy at the loss of this beautiful person.  I couldn’t stop crying when I heard the news. I am tearing up writing this now.   I am so sorry that you are all going through this.  I meet a lot of people in my journey of selling homes – there are a few that really inspire me, bring me so much joy & touch my heart & Beth was certainly one of those people.  She truly could light up an entire dark room with her smile and her genuine love for life.  She was a very inspriing person! So many times I thought – Gosh I just want to be like her!   It brought me so much JOY to see her making home made jelly, pies & her notes to me with all the things she was doing to the house.  She loved all of you so much.  I am lifting your family in prayer for strength & may you feel the arms of love around you during this difficult time.  May God bless each and every one of you.  Fly high beautiful angel!

So sad to hear of the death of Beth, she now resides in the arms of God.  Her journey will not be a lonely one since her mother and father will be there to escort her to heaven gates to be with God and one of his newest angles.  RIP Beth, you will surely be missed.

I’m so saddened to hear of Beth’s passing.  I was truly shocked and heartbroken when Brittany called me to tell me she passed.  Beth was the true epitome of constant positivity, cheer, and happiness!  She was the ultimate cheer mom who adored, loved, and supported Christina with her entire being.  She had such a beautiful smile and infectious personality!  She filled a room with fun and energy!  May the Lord comfort Christina and other family members during this time of loss!  I will never forget you Beth, and your Pixie Dust Dreams?  ❣ My heart goes out to you Christina❤️ Love and Hugs ❤️

Robbie. Christina and family,
I will always think of Beth smiling, talking about her Prince Charming Robbie and loving her daughter Christina. She was so generous with her love. She was also very creative even making my dogs treats. I had the pleasure of meeting her through Mary Mother of the Church where we shared our faith. 
Her death is such a shock and creates a loss for all who knew her but especially for all of her family. I am so very sorry. She will be missed.
