     Sarah Elizabeth “Beth” Reideler was born in Cherokee, Iowa, on September 30, 1944, to loving parents RJ and Helenrose Reideler. She was soon joined by two sisters, Mary and Roberta, and the family eventually settled in Rockwell City, Iowa. After graduating from high school, Beth attended Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, before heading out for adventure in the West, eventually landing in Montrose, Colorado, to start a family.
     Beth was a lifelong artist, specializing in woven wall hangings. She enjoyed decorating her house with the seasons and caring for the many pets she loved. She spent her professional career helping the less fortunate, and throughout her life, gave generously to causes and organizations she believed in. She loved the outdoors and was quick to smile and laugh.

“Dearest Beth, I am so sad that you are gone but relieved you are not suffering any longer. You were such a great sister-in-law and we loved visiting you every time we came to Colorado. You always made us feel so special and so welcome. I found a photo recently the summer that Brent and I met in 1976 at your house. We were so stupid crazy in love already even after three days. I hope that you’ve met up with Brent in the afterlife and you’re having a good gabfest. Sending your family love. Marjie ”

“I remember going with my brother, Bo, to Twin Lakes & spent some time with Beth. This was a few years back, but the memory lingers! Keep the memories, & remember "Goodbyes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again." My deepest sympathy to loved ones left behind! RIP, Beth!”

“Beth was a few years ahead of me in school, I always thought she was so pretty and friendly. I was closer in age to Mary and Roberta. We are praying for you all, Beth is in a better place now.✝️”
