Greg and family,
A piece of my heart went to heaven on July 25th and no one will be able to fill it! I haven't seen her in a while and that makes me so sad. She was the kind of friend that you could pick up where you left off!
Her smile radiated your soul! The world will not be the same without Beth Ireland!
David and I will be praying for you and your precious family!

Mrs. Ireland was my kindergarten teacher at Bethlehem. She was one of my favourite teachers. She was always so kind and let me sit in her classroom when I didn't fit in. She is truly a kind soul and I really wish I could see her again, holding my diploma and hugging her. Thank you for the constant care, Beth.
Love, Jenna and Hailey

Beth was always kind to everyone. She would always work with you till you got something and always made those around her feel special. She loved her husband with all her heart. Family was all important to her. (Each and every member. ) She also loved her dogs. Beth was a special lady and will be greatly missed, but I am so thankful God blessed with the honor of getting to know Beth.

I met Beth when she was teaching aerobics at the school and she became one of my massage clients. Beth was a sweet sweet lady. Beth was so kind to everyone and she cared a great deal for her family and the kids she worked with in the school system. It was such an honor to know Beth and she was always happy and smiling. I never heard Beth speak ill of anyone and I never heard her complain. She was such a special person. God Bless her family. I send my deepest sympathies.

Beth was the most amazing sister anyone could have. I had her in my life for 61 years and a piece of my heart died with her. Everyone is right , she had the most beautiful smile and an amazingly kind heart. Carolyn, Sue and I will miss our weekly talks and text messages with Beth.
God gained a beautiful angel..
Love you always,

I am so sorry to hear the passing of Beth. We can never understand why a love one leaves us, but we do have beautiful memories to keep close to our hearts. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and in my prayers during this time of sadness. Love all of you!!

So very sorry to hear of the loss of Beth, she will truly be missed by all! She was one of the most kind, genuine people I had ever met. Working with Beth many years ago at WLE was so rewarding. To know her was to love her. She always had a big smile on her face and took us all in like she was our "Mama" at work. She always gave the best advice! Not only did I work with her as a Parapro at the time, but my sons first year of school in Kindergarten was nothing short of amazing to have him in her classroom. He is 23 years old now, and he never forgot her and how special she was. We are all so saddened to hear of her passing!
