Condolences to the family of Beth Evenson. She was my wonderful next-door neighbor from 1969 until she entered the nursing home, almost 50 years. She enjoyed seeing the neighborhood children grow up and did thoughtful things for them. We had many conversations over the back fence, and we have lots of good memories from those years. She was a blessing to many people. --Iris
Bethy was such a wonderful friend to my mom Joyce, coming to pick her up and they would go out for Mexican food etc, sorry to hear she has passed but know she is in a better place.
My deepest sympathies goes out to the family. May you find comfort in one another as well as in God's promises for the future. Revelation 21:4
