My heartfelt prayers go out to Mary Beth's family & friends. I met her years ago through an audiobook group and she was very sweet and worked hard to share. I was very sad to hear of her passing. I never met her in person but I cared for her and considered her a friend. She will be missed by many. Please accept my condolences, I am so sorry for your loss.

I was also an online friend of Beth. For many years she shared books with others; sometimes many dozens a day. Besides expressing a general love of reading, she had great empathy for those who had physical challenges. She would make extra efforts to help them. She'll be greatly missed by those of us who knew her.

I was an online friend of MaryBeth, Though we were from different continents and backgrounds, we both liked audiobooks and hence our friendship.

She was a kind and generous soul. She will be remembered by our community of book lovers.

My heartfelt condolences to her family. May her soul RIP!
