They were married in the Mesa Arizona Temple November 18, 1954. After Dewey completed his service in the Air Force, they made Pocatello their home, where they raised 5 children, Gail (Heman) Smith, Carol (Cliff) Barnes, Lance (Cami) Taysom, Darren (Danene) Taysom, and Linda (Robert) Eggimann.

Beth and Dewey's time together on this earth was cut short when Dewey was killed in a plane crash in 1973.
