RUSHVILLE — Beth A. Malcom, 65, a longtime Rushville resident, passed on into Heaven Thursday morning, Dec. 13, 2012, with her loving family by her side.

Beth was a florist’s assistant early in life for both Vogel’s and Wendells Florists. Shortly after her marriage to Dick, the couple moved to Martinsville where they spent nearly 10 years. While in Martinsville, Beth became one of the founding members of Eastview Christian Church, began her first full-time job as a teacher’s assistant at Robert Hammonds School for Handicapped Children and was office manager for the Indiana Democratic Central Committee.

In 1989, Beth was presented a plaque from the Rush County Chamber of Commerce for outstanding performance as Executive Director and from the Rushville Republican party for being selected as the most influential woman in Rush County during the 1980s. Her proudest professional accomplishments included Fijitsu Ten announcing that their company selected Rushville as their site for their first American facility, Walmart announcing that they would build in Rushville, Intermet Corporation purchasing the vacant Dana Building and Industrial Cab purchasing the vacant Meto-Kote building.  All of these things transpired while Beth was director of the Chamber of Commerce.
