My sincere condolences.

Beth was my best bud during the one year that I attended St. Elizabeth's School of Nursing. She was kind and sweet, with a gentle yet strong spirit. She made me feel unconditionally accepted and I always knew she was there for me. Her smile was infectious and her eyes always sparkled.
She was an angel on earth, caring for the sick for 40 years. I am grateful that she was in my life. She left a big impression on my heart, even so briefly, it's a feeling that I will always cherish.
Rest in Peace, Beth.
With Love,
Laura Meyers

I had the pleasure of attending St. Elizabeth's with Beth. Her heart was gentle, her laugh an encouragement. When I think back on our years together in school, she was often very like Dori in Finding Nemo. If something hard would happen, as it always did to us in school, she would just keep swimming and encourage by example. She was a quiet inspiration. May the loving arms of Our Savior encircle all those Beth loves. May the circle be unbroken.

Prayerfully,
Kat Cavanaugh LaMantia
