SILVER SPRING, MD – On Saturday, December 11, 2021, BETH LARAWAY McNEAL of Silver Spring, MD passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family. She is survived by her husband of 58 years, JON McNEAL, daughters JENNIFER McNEAL and SHARON DAVIDSON (Lance,) grandsons BRANDON and JUSTIN CHUCKEREL, DUSTAN and DYLAN DAVIDSON, sister ELLEN GURGONE (Phil Huffman,) brother DAVID LARAWAY (Meg,) and nieces and nephews MELISSA BOYLE, MATTHEW GURGONE, NEIL LARAWAY and JACQUI LOUPIS. She is pre-deceased by her parents KENNETH AND GRACE LARAWAY and her son WILLIAM (BILL) McNEAL.
Beth was born in Albany, New York in 1944 while her father served overseas in WWII. When she was 18, she met her future husband, the love of her life, at a church youth fellowship social. They were married a year later in 1963. Bill and Jenni came quickly thereafter, and the family moved to Silver Spring in 1970 with Sharon coming along a couple years later.
Beth loved being a mom to her children most of all, so to keep an eye on them she joined MCPS where she made many lifelong friends over her 20 year career. When her four grandsons arrived, she was in her glory.
In retirement Beth and Jon doted on their family, volunteered for MCPD, traveled, and shared the generosity of their life. Beth will be missed by all those whose life she touched for so many years. She had faith that one day she would be with God and her Bill again. We are sure they are together now, flying with the angels. She will always be a part of all of us. Rest in peace Mom, Beth, Mimi. We love you! To leave a message of condolence for the family please visit HansFuneralHome.com .
