Elizabeth Ann Harter

September 5, 1925June 21, 2020

Elizabeth Ann Tone Harter, 94, believed that “God is love,” and that salvation is found in Jesus Christ. It is with that conviction that she lived her life, and now rests in His perfect garden.

Beth was born in Lima, Ohio to Robert and Edna Tone. She graduated from Northside High School in fort Wayne, Indiana, and attended Ball State Teacher’s College in Muncie. After college, she worked for Bohn Aluminum and Brass until her retirement 35 years later. When she wasn’t working, Beth was a very creative woman and had many hobbies, but working outdoors made her the happiest. Feeding the squirrels and birds gave her constant amusement, and being on her knees tending to her garden brought her much delight. She was a devoted grandmother who cherished celebrating life’s milestones with her kids. God blessed us with her kind and generous spirit, and we will all miss her dearly.

Beth was preceded in death by her parents, brother Charles Harter, and brother-in-law Tom Woods.

She is survived by her children: Gregg and Stephanie Harter, Kim Harter and Angela Emery; Grandchildren: Chuck and Stefanie, Janet, Kyle, Mackenzie and Stacey, Keal and Lindsey; Nine great-grandchildren; Three great-great-grandchildren; Sister Ruth Woods; Nephews James Woods, Richard Woods.

Beth passed away on June 21, 2020. No services are planned at this time.

You always loved to watch the birds in your yard.

The robins were always busy hunting for worms in the grass.

You stood on a little wooden stool looking through the back window, as the others ate seed and suet from your feeders and splashed around in their birdbath

You always kept the feeders full and it always made you so happy to take care of them and know that their little bellies were full.

The squirrels were also your little friends chasing each other around, climbing high and hopping from tree to tree.

You were so loving and kind to all the animals.
Angi and I are so glad to have you as our mother
We miss you very much.

I worked with Beth at Bohn Aluminum for 2 years back in the late 80’s. She was so knowledgeable on their payroll system, antiquated as it was! She took great pride in doing perfect work!

She always reminded me of the actress Frances Bavier (Aunt Bea) on the Andy Griffin Show.

Rest In Peace Beth you will be missed!
