Remembering Beth Walburn
The Celebration of Life for Beth Walburn will be held at Frederick Meijer Garden’s, Sunday March 11th 2pm.
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear friend Beth Walburn on March 1, 2018. Beth has worked with GRBS for 18 years and has been an invaluable member of our team. Beth worked tirelessly on ensuring a safe, fair and ethical workplace in her role as Director of Human Resources, but she also always had time for the phone call from an employee in need. It is through her great heart that she was able to reach out to so many to help them overcome a financial or emotional hurdle. Her program, “Christmas All Year Round,” funded so many of our team members through difficult times. We will keep her program alive as a tribute to her generous spirit and loyal devotion for our team members.
We are awaiting information on the funeral arrangements. Feel free to post thoughts and memories below of our good friend, especially those including her fantastic sense of humor. Oh how I will miss her laughter, contagious and joyful, with tears running down our face at a shared memory or story. May we share those together now.
I will start.
Beth and I had the opportunity to share in a trip to Cancun many moons ago with our husbands, Mike and Dane. One lovely afternoon, Beth and I floated the hours away on rafts in a huge pool, drinking banana daiquiris at a swim up bar and enjoying the most beautiful sunshine. There are so many memories, tears, laughter, sadness, joy through our 15 years together, and I will ALWAYS be grateful we remembered to sometimes just enjoy life in this beautiful world. Love you my friend, Karin
