  1. I loved, talking with aunt Beth. I know she loved her husband very much. As they say in the Hymm, God be with you till we meet again. She is a grand lady and she helped me in my younder years, as well as my mother. I will miss her.

  2. I had not seen Beth for many years,but in conversations and correspondence, she always remembered me with fond sayings and hoped I was doing well, while retired. Joyce Arebalo

  3. We’d call each other talk about many things. When her and Mom were were kids. She was very knowledgeable about a lot things. I will miss her a lot !!!!!!

  4. My memories of Beth were of the Bergen backyard family BBQ’s at our place on 23rd Sreet in Ogden in the 50’s. Maybe Dad (Delore) will organize one for those on the other side to welcome Beth.

  5. When I was going over some family records 3 1/2 years ago, I noticed that Aunt Beth’s 90th birthday was just days away. I had her telephone number so I called to wish her a happy birthday. About two hours later, I promised to call her again the next month, and I will miss the monthly conversations I’ve had with her since. When Aunt Beth and Uncle Al visited when I was a little kid, I found her intimidating but quite fascinating. I’ve told her that when I would try to imagine what I would look like as an adult – that I would never imagine myself as looking like my mother, but rather looking like her (although sister Kathy got the auburn hair and I was stuck with brown). Beth was my dad’s favorite sister and I’m glad I finally got a chance to know her as a person. I knew all the personalities in her stories and was interested to hear her perspective on the family. I took enough notes to have a few reminiscences to share with the rest of the family. She spoke fondly of Ran, and if he will contact me (the email address I had for him no longer works), I have something to share with him. I’m sure she is having a wonderful reunion with Uncle Al.
