Beth grew up in Minnetonka, graduating from Hopkins High School, the class of 1971. Following her graduation she focused on taking care of her family. She then attended St. Mary’s College and graduated with a degree in counseling focusing on family and chemical dependency. Beth worked at Hazelden as a counselor in the family center for many years, as well as various other jobs in the counseling field, devoting a large portion of her life to helping others. In 2002 she began her most important and happiest contribution as a grandmother. Her granddaughters fulfilled and brought unspeakable joy to her life and she loved passing on traditions to her children and grandchildren.
Beth enjoyed many hobbies including gardening, bird watching and crocheting. She also loved nature, animals and her regular coffee order from Caribou. Above all else, she loved her grandchildren and family. She will always be remembered for her strength, compassion and drive among many other things. She will be dearly missed.
Beth is survived by her children, Christopher (Heather) Gardner, Charlynn (Tim) Kohner and Megan (Brian) Dreckman; granddaughters, Hannah and Haven Kohner and Leah and Johanna Dreckman; siblings, Sue (Dick) Hilman, Jayne (Vern) Jaszcak, Bill Potrament and Chuck (Faye) Potrament; along with many other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
