Beth loved playing tennis in her younger years. In her older years, she loved playing Bingo, going to the movies, going on road trips with family and trying different restaurants. Beth was a very loving and giving person.
Even though she didn’t have a lot, Beth would give you her last dime… and her last $2.00 bill.

May she rest in Peace.
