Mary Beth was a strong willed person who was never afraid to speak her mind, but she was also generous with her unconditional love for her family. She was a woman of strong faith and is undoubtedly rejoicing with her Lord and loved ones.
Of the many jobs she held, the one closest to her heart was as a dispatcher for the Burnet County Sheriff’s Department. She was a member of the East Lake Buchanan Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, serving as president. In her long life, she had many friends. Around Burnet she knew most people, and most people knew her. She was a fighter, battling breast cancer for the last 11 years. She loved the Hill Country, never more than in the spring when the bluebonnets were in bloom.
