Dear Ann, Michael, Robert, and James Both Lynne and I were very sad to hear of the passing of your sister Mary Beth. While we don't see each other often, being with you at the reunions was always sheer pleasure for us. Please accept our most sincere condolences. Mary will be missed by many. I know we will miss hearing her laughter, but most of all, her presence with us. May the Lord be with all of you at this sorrowful time.

I wanted to take this time to say that I am so sorry for your loss! She was my partner in crime at work. We sat beside one another policing the AZ site and we talked every day even on weekend sometime! I wanted to say thank you for making work fun. We've known each other for many years but we never been closer than this period of time. I will MISS YOU a great deal. Rest in peace my friend. Until we meet again. I am praying for your family.

My thoughts and prayers of peace to Mary Beths family. Although I only had the privilege of working with her for 2 years, she was someone that was authentic and sweet at the core. She was always so kind and genuine. She would randomly get me little things that she knew would put a smile to my face. She was that person that wanted everyone to smile and be happy. I will miss our laughs and everyday chats. We will miss you terribly.

It was my pleasure to have worked closely with Mary Beth at AstraZeneca until my retirement in 2019. She was a major part of my work life and helped me immensely by her forethought, personal productivity and her insights on how to get things done efficiently. Mary Beth's intelligence and independent thinking stick with me. I miss hearing about her travels and her quilting group projects. During the time we worked together, Mary Beth showed me her caring and supportive nature, and she made sure to never let me get away with taking a short-cut that wasn't the right course of action! I thank her for that. I cannot imagine how her death will affect her family and close friends, it is a devastating loss. Rest in Peace Mary Beth. My sincere condolences to all those who love you.

I will cherish my memories with Mary Beth and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her for over 21 years. She was someone you wanted on your team as she built up her colleagues and wanted the best for everyone. She was dedicated, hard working, reliable, and creative. I will miss sharing stories and most of all the laughter. She was part of our AZ family and we will miss her immensely.

Mary Beth will be greatly missed at AstraZeneca. During this Covid experience, she has managed the safety of our employees in an amazing way. We are all grateful for her dedication and concern over her many years at AZ, but in 2020/21 her everyday presence on site and daily contact with employees was absolutely essential to keeping our employees on site and in the field safe and feeling well cared for. I would check in with her frequently during the course of a week and I will miss her sense of purpose and engagement. I hope you, her family and friends, can fully understand how much Mary Beth meant to all of us at AZ.

I was so saddened to hear of Mary Beth's passing. She was an important, constant, and long-term (almost four decades!) member of the AstraZeneca (AZ) Wilmington community, who took her very crucial job role very seriously and helped to keep all AZ employees safe, well, and healthy. She will be greatly missed and very hard to replace.

I am so sorry for your loss. MaryBeth was the first person I would see in the morning at work, we had breakfast and laughs and helped each other. We both loved our Royal Caribbean cruises and would talk about our trips and upcoming trips. She sparked my interest in sewing and welcomed me in her home several times and we spent hours sewing and creating all kinds of things. She even made us a "wedding" pillow from the train of my dress and gave it to us on our anniversary. More recently we'd have sewing lessons via FaceTime due to the pandemic. She was so talented and always smiled when she was behind her sewing machine. I will miss my sewing buddy. My thoughts and prayers are with her family

I have a lot of great memories of Mary Beth. One of my favorites was attending a cake decorating class up at the Cake Boss establishment! She was so patient when I came over to stay and made so much noise. Cannot forget about our cruise adventures! She will be missed. I'm so sorry for your loss and will pray for your family and your comfort. I am here for you always, Anne.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
