Beth went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 1, 2024.

She worked at The Courthouse Restaurant in Gloucester among other restaurants throughout her life. She never met a stranger and had a smile that would light up a room. She leaves behind a daughter, Sara Shipley, and a son, Kent Beshears, and three grandchildren, Grace, Faith, and Junior McCurry. She had six siblings, Sherry, Bebe, Donna, Glenn, Dana, and Robbie, with multiple nieces and nephews and great-nieces and -nephews who fondly called her Granny. She will be greatly missed by many.
