Beth was my aunt and I called her Boo ever since I can remember. She will be missed a lot. This is an unexpected time of grieving for all of us but the fam is here to support each other. Boo left behind her legacy in Becca who reminds me a lot of her mom. See you in Heaven one day.

I’m so very sorry for the loss. Sending prayers to all.

Love ad peace be with the family

Kirk and I hold a special place in our hearts for our dear, sweet Beth. She played match maker 41 years ago by introducing us at First Assembly Academy. We are eternally grateful that she was the instrument that God used to bring us together. I will never forget her laugh or how she was always chewing gum. I loved her hair and her freckles! She was a joy to be around. You will be greatly missed Beth! Our love and prayers go out to the family.

Beth was my roommate in college in Metairie. I’ve known her all of my life. Her mom and my grandmother were good friends. I’m so saddened to hear this. My heart goes out to Rebecca and her family.

Beth was THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN! I worked with her for sometime while she was an advocate for the Abused Adult Resource Center. She had a heart of gold. She always treated victims with love, respect, and dignity. She went out of her way to praise others who also advocated for victims.

She was always talking about her daughter and how proud she was of her. Rebecca, I’m in prayer for you. You don’t know me but I’ve heard lots of loving stories about you.


Rest easy.
