Beth was also a community leader in her town having served as the Town of Foster Tax Collector and as an elected member of the Foster Town Council. Beth was an avid golfer, seamstress, and bookworm. She loved to travel . One of her favorite places for adventure was a small cabin in the Maine wilderness. She and Ed, during his life, shared their cabin with family and friends - a place of quiet repose along with raucous laughter.
