Elizabeth Standen

When Beth was a teenager she was already a writer and her short stories were both wise and humorous. Among her gifts was a belief in the powers of exaggeration, supported through her love of nature and of all the living beings in the world. The middle child in a family of five, she was the pillar of this family.

Beth was a powerful woman, a nurturer, a loving mother to three sons, a loving wife to her loving husband Jeremy, and a grandmother. Her career was as a therapist, and she was a forerunner in the natural birth movement, both as an educator and as a birthing coach. She was compassionate, brave, humble, full of wit and love, and much loved by all of us who knew her.

Beth's memorial service will be held on Friday June 27, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at Moles Farewell Tributes - Greenacres (5700 Northwest Dr. Ferndale, WA), with a reception following.
