On June 13, 1953, she married Lyle Gosse at St. Felix Catholic Church. While in Wabasha, they had five children. In 1965, they moved to Rochester where the family grew by two, and she began work at Methodist Hospital as a RN. She was an avid reader who loved crossword puzzles, sewing, knitting, traveling and taking care of her family.

Our deepest sympathy in the lost of your wonderful Mother,Beth. I remember many good times I had having coffee with Beth and Peggy and Patty playing with Darcia. Beth was always busy with life and her family. I enjoyed working with her at the hospital where I first met her. Hope to attend the memorial service in October
