She was influential and active on the Prairieburg Fire Department for over 35 years. For many years, she was also a bartender at Prairie Moon Ballroom. Beth loved doing arts and crafts and really enjoyed camping and fishing with her loved ones. She loved socializing, driving around town, going from house to house having coffee with all her friends. Spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, was her greatest joy. Beth will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
