I hold Bethy close in my heart as a childhood friend. We played everyday on Church Street, biking together, hopscotch, barbies, hide and seek, and in your yard. We had "shows" in the Summa's garage and danced to the "Blood Sweat and Tears" to Spinnig Wheel for a quarter! I have so many beautiful memories of our childhood and so many were with Bethy. We have not seen each other since high school except for one time a few years ago. Both our childhoods were shaped by the countless hours playing together with so much love.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

All my love,
Carol Clemens, Verna

Our thoughts and love are with all of you. We cannot express the shock and heartache of your loss. Maribeth was loved life and all of you so much. A little story... the week before Michael Jr wedding she and I met at Malcolms both of us getting our hair done. She talked with love about Cal, Shawna, and Joe and said how well Corc was doing at his job. Told me the plans Cal was making for school. She laughed and joked about our upcoming wedding and all the work that is needed for one day. Plus how fast the kids grew up. Her smile and uplifting conversation will be something I will always remember. She will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.

Love, kiss and hugs to all of you,

Karen Sienkiewich and family
