Bethany was born on March 1, 1981 and passed away suddenly on November 20, 2021. 

Youngest daughter of David F. Lemma & stepdaughter of Rhonda Lemma.  Beloved sister of Erin Lemma (Hunt) and Chris Hunt.  Loving mother of 2 beautiful daughters, Ainsley Paige and Lochlyn Kaet.

Bethany was a Registered Nurse following a long line of nurses in her family. One of her proudest moments was graduating from nursing school as a 3rd generation RN. Both of Bethany's parents were RN's, her grandmother was an RN, and her sister is an RN. 

Bethany continued this family legacy with honor.

Bethany was a passionate animal lover and rescued many cats and dogs.  She continued to donate to rescue groups to help and save pets and animals often.

Bethany leaves behind many friends and family members.  Special cousins Casey, Matt, Megan, Landyn, and many more.  Cherished Aunts Jude and Stephanie.

Bethany was preceded in death by her mother, Sandra K. Buchanan, and her grandparents, Robert and Esta Lemma and Richard Hewdell & Willa Buchanan.

The family is currently establishing a trust fund for her 2 young daughter’s future and contributions can be made by contacting her sister directly.

A Celebration of Life will be held on December 18, 2021 at One Under Banquet Hall, North Room.

The Nurse Honor Guard will be present and a ceremony releasing Bethany from duty will be performed at 12:00 noon. We ask that as many nurses and healthcare workers be present for this very special moment as it will only be a few short moments.
