Beth Ann Dunlap was born on November 13, 1955 to parents Ronnie and Laurel (Mock) Jones of Austintown, Ohio. Beth passed away December 2, 2019 at the age of 64 surrounded by her family and friends. Her earthly body is free and her next adventure has started.
She had many good memories from growing up in Austintown during the 1960’s & 1970’s, of which she would often reminisce. She graduated from Austintown Fitch High School in 1973 where she played clarinet in the marching band and symphonic band. In her early life she worked for Fremar Management in Austintown, Ohio.
For the past twenty plus years, Beth resided in Oklahoma where she and her husband Rick had their own business supporting Home Depot, installing window treatments purchased through the store. She formed real relationships with those she worked with. She was loved.
Beth was an amazing wife, sister, aunt and cousin. A close friend, to many, and friend to many more. She was beautiful inside and out. Her positive spirit, sharp wit, friendly sarcasm, and her fierce love were hallmarks of her personality. She was not afraid to be herself. She was comfortable in her own skin. She knew who she was and whose she was. She was deeply loved by many. She valiantly fought her health battles. Never dishonest about the toll they took on her, but always finding the encouraging parts to hold on to. She held close to her faith. She loved animals, especially her dogs. She was a leader when required, but by nature supportive; encourager; true friend.
Beth was preceded in death by her parents Ronnie and Laurel as well as close family friend Marina DeSalvo; her uncles’ Phil Jones, Bob Taynor and her cousin Paul Wilkens.
Survivors include her beloved husband Rick and their fur babies Tiffy (pointer mix) and Mabel (red boned hound dog) of Wellston, OK. In the Youngstown area she leaves her brother Mark (Roberta), nieces Sarah & Marina, nephew Andrew, great niece Maddison Beiling whom she loved to spoil, and life-long best friend Judy (Rich) Dill. She also leaves Aunts’ Del Taynor, Cookie Jones, Suzie (Bernie) Wilkens; cousins Jennifer, Steffie, Allie, Pamela and Linda with whom she shared many childhood memories.
