    For Marybeth and her entire family,
    I will miss you so.
    We worked together at PW for over 14 years.
    so many stories ,lots of laughs and lots of tears, alot of dancing at the Christmas parties.
    Red bull, frozen water, computers, and Golden Girls will always remind me of YOU!
    May you rest now in eternal peace.
    you will be missed here but I know you must be rejoicing to be with your family that you have missed for so long.
    and for your family,

    “when your shoulders are heavy, don’t worry..that’s just Marybeth resting her wings”.

    Christine, co-nurse @ PW.

    I’m so sorry to read about Marybeths passing. She taught our baby class back when we had our first born 10 years ago. She was our first impression of Pediatrics West. I was so glad to see her again recently at the Groton office. I’m sad to hear she won’t be there anymore. Sending many condolences to her family. She was a lovely woman and was so good to my kids.
