Elizabeth Alice Brown VanSyckle 09/29/1957 - 03/10/2023 Born in Bitburg, Germany to Col. Raymond Sedgwick Brown and Harriet Louise Reed. Survived by her husband and Soulmate of 43 years, Michael VanSyckle and daughter Meredith. Her Grandchildren, Myles, Mason and Madeleine, Her brothers, Tom (Norma), Jerry (Marion), John (Julie), Niece Mindy (Tom), Nephew Christian (Joyce), numerous brothers and sisters in law, many family members and countless friends past and present. Beth retired in October 2022 as an RNC at Driscoll Children's Hospital after 25 years. She worked as a NICU Nurse for 44 years, in Texas, Arizona and California. Beth loved her babies... truly loved the babies she cared for. She worked on the heart transplant team for Preemies at Loma Linda, Ca University Hospital for several years. She never gave a thought to changing her specialty in nursing, it was always about the most defenseless that she was most determined to work with. Her love in her relationships with her co-workers made her heart sing. Her many, many friendships were simply stunning. Nurses share an amazing sisterhood! Beth was a lifelong rescuer of dogs, she loved the theater and arts, musicals, film, plays. She was an avid reader, often reading 3-4 books a week. She could have owned Chicos after her intense relationship with them for a decade, she enjoyed shopping, she loved to cook and was happiest at home with her Michael and Meredith. Beth shared Michael's passion for the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns football team. You could often find them at a game enjoying each other's company and screaming for their favorite teams. She adored her Grandchildren, Myles, Mason and Madeleine. She read with them, played with them, cooked with them. She was so proud to be their Mimi, so very proud. Beth suffered from diabetes her entire life and its many opportunistic illnesses. She was the most valiant warrior, strong, courageous, intelligent, loving, kind and amazingly funny woman. She never complained about her health, instead always asking for the welfare of others. Beth was a kidney transplant survivor, she made it through open heart surgery, she suffered through serious gut issues. She never complained, she fought on. She was tiny, but she was mighty! We will all forever be blessed to have known her, to have loved her and to be loved by her. We will never forget this most amazing of women. God bless and God rest our darling Beth. Celebration of Life service will be held Friday, March 31st at The Art Center 100 N. Shoreline Blvd. Corpus Christi, TX 78401, The Bay View Room, 10:30-1:30 In Lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be made to Kidney.org in memory of Elizabeth VanSyckle
