I honestly don't know what to say. I just found out about this and talked to her daughter-in-law on the phone just a few minutes ago. She passed last night and was found this morning. For those of us who've gotten to know Beth over the years, this is a heartbreaking day for everyone, especially her family. Please keep her family in prayers and for those of us who knew her through our smoking support group, please reach out to one another and this is devastating news. She was such a tough lady who inside, was sweet, loving and would do anything for anybody.

GreenLover was there in Sarge's first days (at The Other Place). She later revealed herself as Beth, and reminded Sarge soooooo much of his Grandma on Mom's side. Still does.

 

For what it's worth, GreenLover - you made it. All the way to the end as a non-smoker. A true Lifer.

 

You made it.

 

Sarge salutes you and is honored to present your final promotion.

 

Sergeant Major GreenLover Beth, It was a privilege to have known you and my life is better for having done so.

You guys... this loss is major to me... I have seen so many pass away since I joined the quit community about 8 years ago... but Beth was my best friend of all of them.  I don't know what to do right now, I'm crying and can't stop.  I talked to her almost daily on facebook in private messages and she had told me she thought there was something wrong with her lungs because she was quite short of breath lately.

 

I am just so sad... our dear friend had a very tough life but she always did what she needed to, no complaining.  Damn, we lost a major wonderful lady today.

Beth and I butted heads so much on the start of my quit journey.  Anyone who was witness to this either found it painful...or highly entertaining.  What most people did not see were the countless messages going back and forth for over a year that brought us to an unusual but cool bond.  Beth was genuine...a loving heart who would literally give someone the shirt off her back.  Loved her no nonsense approach...her sense of humor...her loving heart.  

 

Gonna miss you so much miss rolly eyes!!

My last text message on my phone from Beth was from January 26th, 2016.  It read, "Hey just for laughs can you put a judge judy pic on my post?"  She was referring to a .GIF of Judge Judy with her eyes rolling and she wanted it in her signature, where it was but she since removed it.

I am so shocked... and sad!!! I'm just out of words, I will pray, as she would have... I've never been affected like this, never met Beth in real life but as said on facebook: the quittrain is a family, always!!! Overwhelmed.
Rest in peace, Beth

Beth, I'm going to miss you so much.  Thanks for the PM's of encouragement and for always being so genuine.  Your life was not easy but you kept going and made the best of it.  You're in the arms of God now.  Rest easy.  xx

beth will be missed. she butted heads with a bunch...but then again we all did or we wouldn't have a train. She just liked something of mine the other day, which was rare from her, wished her prayers on a post, sad but prayers are what everyone needs sometimes.

 

 

SO more prayers to you Beth, I don't get squishy with emotions, but feel rather upset right now.

Hi, just joined out of my respect for Beth. Thank you rain for letting me know today...Beth, I will miss you! I will miss all of the battles we had all of those years ago...WOW some of them were doosies, but you and I have always had the stubborn kindred spirit thing going on between us...we always remained friends in spite of it all. I remember once you thanking me for never giving up on you, but it is YOU I Thanked for showing me how, that no matter what in this life, no matter the obstacles, to never ever give up! You did it too!! You became smober! And then I was able to watch you give back to others with that no-nonsense, no bs, laced with humor you had...I know you are enjoying a well-deserved rest with our God...but I want you to know-- 'cause I think you are watching ;) and because it is true, I will miss you and I love you lady.....katiem

I am so sorry to hear this. Beth was quite the character and will be missed.

I can only hope that she passed quickly and did not suffer.

I am so upset. :( I loved her! She was so refreshing and seemed to be such a true person, an honest person, which to me is one of the most important things to be. I hope you are in heaven with your sister now and you are free

I, too, am so sad and shocked to hear this news.  I don't even know what to say.  I got an email from her once out of the blue and before I opened it I wondered if I had said something to make here mad or something.  I opened it and she was just saying something really sweet about me getting over a craving or hitting some really random milestone (don't quite remember as it was a while ago).  I was completely touched.  She certainly holds a special little place in my heart.

We didn't have a long history, but the few interactions we had, she was always kind and supportive of my quit, offering sound advise with a twist of humor.  I'm grateful to have known her and I wish we'd have had more time.

 

Warm hugs to the Quit Train family members who knew her well.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
