Our foundation was formed in 2019 in order to continue to honor the memory of Beth Vissing Nieman by offering tuition assistance to a student or students of LaSalle and/or Mercy McAuley High Schools who are affected in some way by cancer, whether it be a loved one's illness or the student's illness.
Beth had many friends and brought many people together. She was the kind of friend that had a good time in any situation. Even when Beth was going through her own personal struggles, she was always there for others.
Beth died just five days shy of turning the big 5-0 and her funeral was held on that special day. Her college and childhood friends discussed the fact that Beth would never turn 50 and will always be 49. She would be Forever 49.
We wish Beth had been here with us to celebrate her 50th birthday, but we know that we can keep her memory, her love of a great time, and her kindness alive by continuing to celebrate her through this foundation. We are “forever” grateful that she was in our lives.
