    In the late 1960s in Pasadena, Mary Beth and her roommate Sarah, took a passel of young Marines under their wings, me included. We loved her. She was a wonderful friend. I have missed her for 50 years, and now I miss her again. All my love, Mary Beth, all my love.

    Extending my deepest sympathy to MaryBeth’s children and brothers. I loved MaryBeth and learned so much from her about Nursing and life in general. She was a selfless and caring person, always doing for others, and she loved her children and her dogs. I feel so blessed to have known MaryBeth and to have been her friend for over 45+ years. I will miss her.

    I've lost my best friend. Her love for dogs and her commitment to helping as many animals as she could brought us together, and we shared many stories, many life situations and I am proud to have been able to have her as a friend. RIP MaryBeth
