Rafell Collins(Rachel), February 23, 2021 I worked with Mary Beth, and her family, when I was the QMRP some years ago. Mary Beth had the best smile! She always looked sunny! I have, and will always, miss that about her. She definitely enriched my life having known her and having spent time with her. Prayers for peace for her family.
