She was born in Spangler Aug. 23, 1922, the daughter of John V. and Isabel Goss Moore.
Beth was a graduate of Conemaugh Valley School of Nursing, class of 1943. She enlisted in the Army Nurse Corps in September 1944 and volunteered for overseas duty where she served with the 233rd General Hospital in the Pacific Theater, culminating with duty on Okinawa. Upon her discharge, Beth entered and was graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1951 with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing education, and thereafter was employed as an instructor at Presbyterian Hospital until moving to Indiana in 1955. Prior to this period of career development, in September 1950, Beth was joined in marriage with Robert Klar of Jefferson County. In July of 1957 this union was blessed by the addition of a son, John Frederick. In Indiana, Beth served as an instructor with the Indiana Hospital School of Nursing until 1979, and continued as the Health Nurse for hospital employees after the school closed, until her retirement in 1985. In retirement, she volunteered at the Hospital Medical Library; at Grace Methodist Church, she participated in Circle activities.
