Mary Beth Jernigan, 71, died June 23, 2012, with her family by her side in La Jolla California. Despite her weak condition she showed strong resolve until her final moments.|
Mary Beth was a patron of the arts and a world traveler. She was an active member of The Mingei Museum, The Asian Arts Council, The Japanese Friendship Garden, The Atheneum, and never missed a La Jolla Playhouse Opening.

Mary Beth was preceded in death too early in life by her husband, Richard Jernigan.
