She grew up in Anaconda but lived and spent time in Butte and Missoula as well.

Beth was extremely talented at whatever she endeavored, whether it was playing the guitar, singing, drawing, or crocheting and crafting. She loved music, plants, flowers, and gardening. Some of her fondest memories were of Harley Davidson rides, camping, fishing and floating in our beautiful state. She had a beautiful smile and laugh that would light up the room. She was a friend to many and will be greatly missed. She leaves behind her daughters and grandchildren and several brothers and sisters: Jim and Bonnie Greek of Roy WA; Janice and Bill Hamilton of Puyallup WA; Kathy and Mike Riley of Butte MT; Tom O’Brien of Butte, MT; and Colleen Foster and Jim Miller of Butte, MT. She also leaves numerous nieces and nephews: Casey, Riley, Megan, Kelsey, Jennifer, Shaylyn, Matt, Melissa, and Cody.
