She was a lifelong resident of Poquoson, a member of Trinity United Methodist Church, and was raised during the Depression Era. Miss Bethany could take the simplest of items and turn them into something magical. She loved children and animals and would not tolerate either to be mistreated. Miss Bethany was preceded in death by her husband, Richard E. Diggs; parents, Andrew and Annie Forrest; brothers, Nelson Forrest, Joe Forrest, and Henderson Forrest; sister-in-law, Ann Arcovitch; and niece, Myrna Gail Wechsler. She is survived by her daughter, Fimiah Pauls & husband Lester; grandson, John Pauls & wife Amanda; great-grandchildren, Baylor, Hayden, and Hudson; and many nieces, nephews, and close friends who always found time to share fellowship. The family will receive friends Saturday, December 17, 1-2:00 PM, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson, immediately followed by a Celebration of Miss Bethany's life at 2:00 PM, led by Rev. Charles R. Stacy. Interment will follow at Weston Cemetery, Poquoson. At other times the family will be at her daughter's home.
