Beb held numerous positions within the chapter, both elective and appointive. She was serving a second term as corresponding secretary at the time of her death. Beb worked in Richmond for most of her career serving at McGuire VA Hospital, the Instructional Visiting Nurse Association, and Saint Mary's Hospital.
