Loss of Beth McVay

Thank you to all of you in the Buzz Community for this notification. I just found out the news of her death and am stunned and crushed. Beth was a paddling buddy years ago. She attended the Boulder College of Massage Therapy after graduating she worked as a staff massage therapist at in Boulder. She eventually studied nursing and became a registered nurse in Denver. We are very sad to lose her as a friend and colleague.

Beth was, and surely still is among the whitewater family as she "gave her heart to the mountains the minute she stood beside the river with its spray in her face..." I appreciate and will always remember the many shuttles we rode and rivers that we ran together.

Peace Beth!

Just a couple of weeks ago, she and I were at the takeout for Black Rock talking about boating in our mid to late 30's. She was understandably concerned about an upcoming birthday and I told her not to worry -there were many years of boating left.

This whole thing is just so tragic. I'm going to miss seeing you out there, Beth.

This is such a shock. I'm so, so sorry to hear this. The boating community has lost a damn good soul. My thoughts are with her family and her many, many friends.

The boating community lost a great one.
I thought I only knew her online (she posted here as "ednaout") until the photo was posted and I realized I had seen her on several rivers.

Peace to her family and boating buddies!

Terrible news. I'm glad we had the privilege of knowing her.

Beth was all smiles, enthusiastic, talented, full of boofs, and a wonderful person. I can't believe that we lost her! I'm stunned right now. Before moving to Idaho, my front range crew and I used to paddle regularly with Beth. We all loved having her along. Her positive outlook and mood were very contagious and you couldn't help but smile while on the river with her.

I'm so sorry this happened, and my heart goes out to her family. If anyone gets more detailed info on memorial floats or the service, please post it.
