Beth Youngblood, age 60, left her hurting earthly body to be welcomed home in the arms of Jesus on Sunday May 23, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents John Garrett and Lila (Harper) Garrett.
She is survived by three brothers, Mike Garrett of Asheville, NC, Randy Garrett of Webb City, MO, David Garrett of Terra Haute, IN, three children Emily Garrett of Neosho, MO, Jacob Youngblood of Neosho, MO and Carley (Alex) Mikeska of Joplin, MO, 8 grandchildren Hannah (Gabriel) Cole, Alexis Youngblood, Elijah Garrett, Aubrey, Jax and Zavin Youngblood, Harper and Taysom Mikeska as well as two bonus grandsons Corey and Camden Clark. She is also survived by her closest friend Tricia Braden.
Beth grew up with her family in the Webb city area, she then raised her children there as well. She served people her entire life, she was kind, generous and always knew what to say at the right time. She had many titles as mother, sister, and friend but her favorite title of all was grandma. Beth loved her grandkids more than life itself. Her best days were spent with all her kids and grandkids laughing and playing in her home. Those who knew her loved her and laughed with her, she enjoyed coloring with Aubrey, having Tuesday night dinners with Taysom and Harper, taking naps with Alexis, and spending her evenings with Hannah and Eli. She loved having her younger grandsons Zavin and Jax over to play.
Beth has been struggling with her health for years and has been home bound for a while but she continued to live her life for God even when she was unable to attend church, she enjoyed watching online and listening to worship music. She was a fervent prayer worrier just like her mother before her. There is nothing more she wanted than her family to know how much she loved them. She said on her last day she was awake that she had the perfect life. Beth is with us today and every day, she is in the presence of the Lord and walking the streets of gold finally pain free.
The family will have a memorial service on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at 11:00 AM at the Joplin Full Gospel Church, 2601 South Indiana Avenue, Joplin, Missouri 64804. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Simpson Funeral Home in Webb City. Visit www.simpsonfh.com for online condolences.
