Beth was born on April 16, 1931, to Allen and Mona Beene, in Hemphill County, Texas. Her family moved from Allison, Texas, in 1936 during the depression to Amarillo where her father started a neighborhood grocery store in the Glenwood area. Beth started school in Amarillo and graduated from Amarillo High School in 1949. She began her college career at Texas Women’s University in Denton, Texas, and after one year she transferred to West Texas State University and was involved in the West Texas State University choir and graduated in 1953 with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. 

She then began her teaching career in Vega as the high school business teacher. In Vega she met the love of her life and on November 17, 1957, she married Roger L.

She taught for 35 years and retired when she was 70 years old. 

She was a follower of Christ and an active member of the Vega Methodist Church and the Golden Buff Alumni Association. She volunteered with the local Food Pantry and enjoyed the Meet and Eat Club each month as well as assisted with many funeral dinners over the years. 

She took great delight supporting her grandchildren; traveling to watch them compete in various sports and ag activities.
