Condolence & Memory Journal

On behalf our family Anna, Grace and Matthew, Angela and I offer our deepest sympathy to the entire Armstrong family and friends.

We were neighbors to the Armstrong's for a number of years in Fort Wayne. Beth was always so very generous and dedicated to her husband Ron and her family; especially her extended family and her work family at Blackhawk. We remember her as very helpful, complimentary, and was always doting on our small children, who made themselves very comfortable next door! Our prayers go out to Ron and the family. just know she is with the other Angels in Heaven right now. Rest easy, Beth.

Beth and Ron have always been reliable and courageous members of Blackhawk. The success of Christmas with Blackhawk would not have been so successful if it were not for Beth (and Ron).

I (we all) will miss her dedication to the ministry work at Blackhawk. And are grateful to both Beth and Ron for their unwavering service over the years.

May she experience the joy unspeakable awaiting all of us in the presence of the Lord!
