Nelson; the fifth of seven children, three boys and four girls. The family moved to Utah in 1934.  As a youngster, Beth loved to sing and her mother taught her to play the piano.  She graduated from Ogden High School.

Beth was married three times, surviving all her husbands. She married Bert C. Carr in Ogden on November 2, 1940.  She joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and they were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple April 26, 1956. He passed away at age 48 on April 26, 1967.

She found great enjoyment in dancing and was a member of several Square Dance Clubs.

She was employed full-time for most of her adult life. Early on she worked at a commercial bakery, but was primarily employed by American Food Stores and Smith’s Food; working first in the meat department, then the bakery and for many years as a “checker” (cashier).
