Elizabeth “Beth” Catherine Meidl was born on May 12, 1937 to John and Ann (Regan) Schaffer in St Paul, Minnesota. She graduated from Holy Trinity Secondary School. Shortly after graduating, Beth married Martin Meidl at Holy Trinity Cathedral in New Ulm. The couple moved to Lamberton, where they owned and operated The Music Mart, and Beth focused on raising their children. When she wasn’t working or spending time with her family, Beth often helped St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Lamberton and the San Lucas Tolimon Mission in Guatemala. She also enjoyed playing Bridge Club with her friends. Above all, Beth’s family was central to her life and she loved every minute she could spend with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Beth will be greatly missed by those who knew her. Blessed be his memory.
