She was born in Sutton, WV on April 26, 1942 to William P. and Nora L. Mace. Beth was raised in Layland, OH where she attended grade school. After graduating high school at Killbuck, OH, she moved to Columbus, OH to work at Dollar federal Savings and Loan and take classes at OSU. She met the love of her life in Columbus and they were married on April 21, 1962. Two weeks later along with Bill and his 5 year old son, Paul (who became her son to this day) she headed to Rexford, MT to start what was to become an amazing life story. Beth loved the idea of family and family life and she considered that her top priority and crowing achievement.



Beth had many gifts and skills that she continued to develop taking extension classes at U of M and Flathead Community College. She published a book about her life in the Lord. She was room mother in her children's school, assisted with reading programs, active in 4H, Brownies and coached children's softball.

They have eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
