Beth Harward

2/21/1927 ~ 4/11/2020

Beth Harward, born February 21, 1927, died April 11, 2020. Wife of DeVere Harward. Mother of JB & Roger Harward and Cassandra (Don) Chambers.
Beth and DeVere lived and raised their children in Chester along with turkeys , sheep, pigs and many loving grandchildren.
She thought everyone was her friend and treated them that way. They taught their children to work hard, have compassion and friendship for others and never take a hand out. Pay your way. She always had a full time job and many creative hobbies and church jobs.
She had a long happy well lived life and will be missed.
She has been a resident of Country Lane Assisted Living since June 2014. She loved the people who work and live there like family and indeed they were. The loving care and friendship she had there was the best anyone could have asked for. There will be a family service in the future. Online condolences at rasmussenmortuary.com

    Sadly, I didn’t have the privilege of knowing Beth. But I did know her sweet daughter “Cassie”. Beth must have been a wonderful mother to raise such a kind, thoughtful, helpful daughter. Parting is such a SWEET SORROW. I have never liked “goodbyes”. But I have to think of all Beth’s family and friends who were so happy to have her back with them. I send my love and sympathy to all of Beth’s family. May God be with you ’till you meet again!

    I loved Beth. I first met her while I was serving in the stake Relief Society. She was a wonderful lady, so talented. She suffered with her arthritis but never did she complain. You are all so lucky to have such a beautiful mother. She was my dear friend.
