I got to know Beth because she was a friend and neighbor of my mothers, MaryJane Hocker, at Somerby!!

She was always such a delightful person and I enjoyed conversations with Beth!

She amazed me, by doing 500 piece puzzles, in memory care. Such a bright light!!

Sending prayers to Beth’s family!❤️

Beth and I played together as children at the big Walton home on 24th Ave., South, along with Jimmy, Judy and John. We also attended Belmont Methodist Church together. Although Beth was older than I, she always made me feel included. She was my ideal "big sister" and I have remembered her for 65 years. Always will.

Oh sweet Beth...I met you thru my beloved Aunt, Betty Baker. We became fast friends and I so loved listening to all your tales of traveling with the airlines. It was a big adjustment for everyone when you left the Cloisters. It is good to know that you are at peace with our Lord in heaven. God speed sweet Beth.

Beth was a dear sweet person who never met a stranger, She could be seen at any given time strolling through the cloister with her friends and pets, always kind to animals and people. We will miss you dear Beth. Love from all your friends in the cloister.

Beth was a wonderful friend. She brought much happiness and laughter into the lives of everyone she came in contact with. When she lived at the Cloisters we would see each other every day. She always had a kind word to say about everyone. We shared a love of animals. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time of sorrow.
