Bethany was born on April 25, 1989 at St. John’s Hospital (now Mercy) in Springfield, Missouri, but grew up in Ozark, and graduated from Ozark High School in 2007. She was always full of life, and as a young girl enjoyed gymnastics, had a special love for the outdoors, and also liked to read and journal. She loved listening to the Beatles, and her favorite movie was The Princess Bride. Bethany was dearly loved by Tanner Pentecost, numerous friends and extended family, and was recently baptized at Passion Assembly of God in Springfield. She had a beautiful smile, contagious laugh, and will be greatly missed by those who had the privilege of knowing her.
