She played pickleball and bridge at the Senior Center and worked out at the Wellness Center. She worked at TCN in Xenia.
Bethany was always honest, polite, considerate, tender-hearted and a lot of fun. She volunteered at many organizations throughout her life, most recently at 4 Paws for Ability and the Yellow Springs Senior Center.
