Meet Beth Klaassen, a valued
volunteer with Campbell County Health in Gillette, Wyoming.
Beth is a natural when it comes to her volunteer role: working in the
Gift Shoppe at Campbell County Memorial Hospital. She owned a small dress boutique
in Casper for eight years, so she knows how to display merchandise so
it will sell quickly.
Beth also taught all grades of elementary school in the
Campbell County School District for 20 years at Wagonwheel, Hillcrest, and Westwood schools. She says
she really loved the kids, and building relationships with students, parents
Beth and her husband Larry have two sons, one living in Cheyenne and one
in Gillette. The couple has six grandchildren, ranging from Fourth to
12th grades, with three grandsons living in Gillette. Beth loves following
her grandkids in all their activities. She also plays the piano for her
own enjoyment, and can play by ear.
Beth has volunteered in the Gift Shoppe since 2017, and has 400 volunteer
hours under her belt. She says that volunteering brings her lots of joy
and satisfaction, and really enjoys serving the community and the CCH
staff who shop there.
Worship is very important to Beth, and she enjoys reading spiritual books
and the Bible. She has taught Sunday School for many years to mixed age
groups. A favorite memory of Beth’s is being part of a mission team
of 20 people that went to Siberia, focusing on ministry and encouragement
to women. She also traveled to an orphanage in Honduras with her family
on a ministry as part of her church. Both trips had a significant impact
on Beth’s life.
Beth embodies the spirit of volunteerism; giving her time for the opportunity
to help others. Thank you for giving so much of your time and talents to CCH.
