    What an amazing lady our Aunt Beth was! We called her our little energizer bunny…always so full of positive energy & she could out walk us all on our many visits to Washington DC. When Charlie & I visited with Mom & Dad to introduce her to our newborn Lucy (named after her mother, my grandmother) as she held Lucy, Lucy gave her the biggest smile (& her first really true smile!!) which also gave Aunt Beth the biggest laugh & smile! (Still one of my favorite pictures!) I’ll fondly remember a visit to Alexandria after Uncle Chuck passed & Aunt Beth & I had the best time in DC, riding the Metro, having a lovely lunch & visit to the Art Museum, hitting the antique mall, Mount Vernon Inn & just enjoying the birds & flowers in their beautiful backyard. She loved whenever my whole gang visited & always was so interested in our lives & adventures! She called to thank me for some flowers in January while we were driving cross country taking Ginny to Cal State. We happened to be driving through Texas at the time & she shared memories of when the Lee family moved to Texas as a young girl. Her love of life was infectious & even as her health declined (& just in the last year!) she always had an optimistic outlook. I loved that chuckle & her often mischievous smile! Dearest Carolyn, Bob & Keith, you were blessed with an amazing mother who led such a long & fulfilled life, impacting so many. Now your mom & dad are dancing in Heaven! Love you all very much…stay safe & strong & look forward to seeing you soon.

    Our Aunt Beth was little but mighty – with emphasis on mighty in so many ways. She was a great traveling companion and I especially enjoyed traveling with her back to the “Farley” farm in Nov. of 2013 where two bald eagles graced us with their presence as they danced in the sky above us. We wondered if it weren’t Keith and John greeting us.
    She had more stamina than anyone I know and that proof was in her longevity of 99 years on this planet. She outlived all her siblings, even though she was the eldest.
    Enjoy your next chapter, Aunt Beth.
    Bobby, Caroline, and Keith, I look forward to getting together with you all next Spring or whenever it is humanly possible. Stay healthy and strong.
    Love you all,

    Aunt Beth was a truly caring, energetic, fun and wonderful lady. She was a gracious hostess to our family whenever we visited her in Virginia. Her love of travel brought her to Minnesota to see us a couple times and she so loved her flowers and especially the visit to Munsinger Gardens while traveling with her brother Harry. We were all better for having known her and will miss that brilliant smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with family and God Bless you all.

    Teresa “Lee” Haas & husband Jerry Haas
