Sis Beth is such an inspiration to a lot of us. I will forever remember her courage & the beautiful smile she wears every time. I planted a Gardenia in memory of her. Our friendship will always be a treasure in my heart.

From the very moment my family and I started in the Church of Christ, Sister Beth was so kind to us. Always giving us kind words of inspiration to keep our faith and always pray even in times of struggle. It's her smile and her genuine happiness to see everyone, that shows me just how much she truly cared for all of us. There was a time when I left the choir. Sister Beth was always saying, "Hi Sister Keish! So when are you coming back to the choir? We would love to have you back!" Then she would give me a smile that would make me nervous to say that I wasn't at the time. She reminded me that coming back would be a challenge but somehow she believed in me and I will always love her for this. I'm so grateful I was able to know someone as strong and simply amazing as she was. I will truly miss her and all her advices to strive to do my best.

It's her beautiful smile that I will miss the most. She was a pillar in the Local Congregation of Great Lakes. She held her church offices gracefully up to the last ounce of her strength. She was a role model for us younger mothers, too. I witnessed her thoughtfulness and kindness toward her family and the whole locale. She seized every moment to celebrate and plan baby showers, birthday parties and farewell get-togethers at Great Lakes. She included everybody and bridged people together.

She always has nice words to say to my children: "Julienne has a nice singing voice" "Adi is so pretty"
And she always complimented me on how I have beautiful children.

My whole family will miss her. She was truly a remarkable, inspiring and amazing person.

Rest in peace Sister Beth... Thank you for showing us how love is supposed to be and how to be strong and faithful in spite of pain and trials.

We remember Sis Beth when we got stationed at Great Lakes. It was new year of 2007, the INC Locale of Great Lakes had a year-end celebration. She enteratained us and made sure that we didn't feel out of place.

We had so much memorable events during our stay at Great Lakes, we were one of the witnesses of Bro Lee and Sis Beth's renewal of vow.

You are in our thoughts and prayer Garcia Family. We will miss you so much Sis Beth!

Sister Beth is a ‘‘Poster Child of Life’ – she carried herself with grace and such positiveness, you will never guess she was sick. She lived by example as a church officer and wife of our head deacon. She performed her duties as Choir Leader & locale auditor, did missionary work, brought visitors to our bible studies & evangelical missions, and enlisted one doctrinal student this year. She was involved in locale church activities and made sure our Great Lakes chapel is spic & span. She also participated in district events. Those at the first District Baptism held in our Great Lakes Locale, last May 26, were privileged to give her their last hugs, kisses, and words of hope & love.

She trusted in God to heal her and trusted in His Love to do what is best for her through the anointing of oil. I thank God and very much value the opportunity He gave me to serve Sister Beth one last time on May 27.

Even during adversities, she lived life as always with a beautiful smile on her beautiful face. Like a ‘true Christian’, she stood for what is right before God, she stood for forgiveness, and most especially she stood for love.

We thank Sister Beth for sharing her love to all of us one last time by asking us to wear bright colors to signify Hope. For indeed, we all need hope… that we may all remain in God’s grace and love inside the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo).

We pray to our Lord Jesus and to our Almighty Father to grant Brother Lee, Sister Shanon, Brother Oliver, and family continued peace & comfort knowing she has finished her race.
