I first met Beth years ago when she had a craft table at the Kmart/Safeway mall in Port Alberni. I loved her craft work and have bought a number of gifts from her tables at various craft fairs over the years. When my Mom passed away, I received one of her Bibles and I took it to Beth to ask if she could make a small floral silk arrangement to affix on to the top cover of the Bible, but in such a way that the Bible could still be opened. She did such a beautiful job of that unusual request, using magenta coloured roses, babies breath and greenery. It was just lovely and I still have it on display in our home. What a special thing she did for me in honour of my wonderful Mom ... 28 years ago. Beth was such a warm person, so creative and so genuine. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Larson family.

I am so sorry to hear of Beth's passing. Through the many years she was my side kick with crafts. Joy Scott had adopted her into our family in a manner of speaking and I am so grateful she did. To the family - I know that you will hear this often...she was one great lady. May she rest in peace now without the struggles.

I am very sorry for your loss. Beth was a wonderful lady who had a big heart and cared so much about other people. I have known this family for 40 years and growing up have always considered them my family too. Another Angel gone far too soon.
May she now R.I.P
