Beth Ann Webster of Cave Creek, Ariz., passed on Jan. 15 with her former husband by her side. Bethie was 49.

She loved her visits to the Gunnison country and liked to tease about raising “show sheep” on a ranch which overlooks the Tomichi as it meanders along the valley floor.

She rescued Stryker, Brenda, Lucinda and finally Joseph, giving them a loving forever home. Her dogs have welcomed her across the rainbow bridge.

She was preceded in death by her mother Dianne. Bethie is missed by her former husband Tom Walsh, who took a leave of absence to care for her during her final illness; friends Dan and Carleen Brophy and many others in Gunnison and Arizona. Peace darling. You are forever young and beautiful.
