I met Mary Beth when my mother was in hospice care. Mary Beth had a very peaceful, calming presence about her - she helped us both. When I heard her calming voice, I knew things would be all right. May she Rest In Peace.

I also worked with Mary Beth at Notre Dame. I see her standing before the Beloved One who says, "Thank you Mary, good and faithful servant; you truly made the world a more loving place." My heart and prayers are with her Notre Dame family and with her family of origin.

I was so very sorry to hear about Mary Beth. My mother was assigned to a hospice program and Mary Beth was the Chaplin. From the moment I met her, I was genuinely taken with her kindness, compassion and sincerity. She was there for both my mother and I and I will truly remember her with the greatest admiration. To her friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Hold your memories close.

To Therese and all of Mary Beth's family, I extend my deepest sympathies. Mary Beth was a very good friend to me. I knew her for about 9 years, and in that time, we shared many good times and memories. Mary Beth enjoyed bird watching, which we did on occasion. We also traveled together and shared many dinners and movies together. I am going to miss Mary Beth's kindness, her ability to listen, and be a caring, warm presence especially during hard times in life. Her love for others showed in the way she treated people. She will be missed greatly. God rest your soul, Mary Beth.

I was very saddened to hear about Mary Beth's passing.  My deepest sympathy to all the family.

Mary Beth was a compassionate, gentle and kind woman, an awesome co-worker and friend. We worked together at Notre Dame  Hospice in the same office. We shared many intimate stories family, enjoyed little things like watching a hawk in a tree outside our office window or the first snow of the season.

I will miss her but will never forget her. The memories I have I shall treasure forever -
