Bevleen Y. (Mentzer) Leib, 55, of Elizabethtown, died unexpectedly at her home of natural causes on Tuesday, March 14, 2017.

In addition to her husband, Michael, she will be lovingly missed by a daughter, Lori Leib, fiancé of John George, III and a son, Daniel Leib, all of Elizabethtown. Also surviving are a grandson, Warren Leib and two brothers, Patrick and Michael Mentzer.
Bevleen enjoyed crocheting, arts and crafts and painting ceramics. She also enjoyed playing with her grandson, Warren and sneaking treats to him while he played on the swingset and slide. Bevleen and Warren also loved taking the dog, Gunner, out to play in the snow as well as play fetch.
Mrs. Leib was a diabetic since she was 9 years old and had other various medical conditions but her family never heard her complain. She always learned and used her experiences to teach others. One of Bevleen’s proudest accomplishments was going back to school at York Technical Institute (YTI) in her 40’s and was the recipient of the Recognition of Excellence Award at YTI in 2007.
