Bethany Joy Herbert passed peacefully into heaven on March 16, 2020 surrounded by her family and faithful nurse of 16 years. Bethany was the oldest of six children and deeply loved by her parents Jeffrey and Irene, sisters Allison and Genevieve, and her three brothers John Patrick, Joseph and James.
Bethany was the sweetest soul with a beautiful smile and trusting heart. She attended Longview school and graduated in 2013 at the age of 21. The teachers and staff there took her on weekly outings, swimming and numerous activities that enriched her life immensely. Bethany and her family made lifelong friends from Longview and the support she had from that community was the best.
Bethany’s extended family, grandparents, aunts, uncles and first cousins loved her with the purest of love and she felt that deeply. The fact that she has now joined some of them in heaven brings more comfort to our souls than you could imagine.
The community of love from family, church, friends and the fire department made all the difference in supporting us through our 28 years with precious Bethany. We are comforted that she is free from suffering and limitations and safe in the arms of Jesus.
