Beth Rotondo Hadrava


Many of you have met and worked with Beth over the years.  Some of you may have known that she’s been ill for several months.  Some of you may not know that she passed over yesterday around noon.

I met Beth through patients that we both cared for.  For many years, Beth provided homeopathy consultations in the greater Philadelphia area, mostly doing home visits although she has worked in other medical practices in the past.  Several years ago when she moved to Brick, NJ, she started mentioning to some patients how difficult it would be to do that hour long drive, then spend the day driving around to different homes to see her clients.  So a few of them came to me and said “Hey, don’t you have space for her?”

Having Beth join MIB was a riot.  Although she was only here one day a week, she was like a cool breeze on a hot day…..she’d saunter into the building, usually wearing some crazy bright outfit, full of smiles even if the traffic had been crazy.  She was the first to ask if we had plans for a party (anytime!) and was quick to invite us all to the shore for gatherings.  Her patients are among the most dedicated I’ve ever seen; it was lovely to watch her work with them.

During the late winter and spring, she became fatigued and short of breath.  It turned out to be metastatic adenocarcinoma, and it landed her in the hospital for a short time.  Yep, Beth in a hospital.  Apparently the staff there now know more than most about homeopathy!  She had the opportunity to move in with family here in PA, so she was surrounded by friends and her family and community during her last days.

Beth was a wise soul, someone who had seen a lot and lived large.  Her space among us won’t be filled anytime soon.

At the time of this writing, we don’t yet know details regarding a service.  I’ll post it as soon as it becomes available.  If you are a patient of hers, or a potential patient, please call the office to get the contact information for the homeopath to whom we’re currently referring .  During this week, we’re holding sacred space in her room at the office.  If you would like to come and spend time saying goodbye to her spirit, please feel free.

I’ll just keep remembering her great laugh…..

    I have to convey my respect for your kindness in support of all those that require assistance with this question. Your very own dedication to getting the message all through had become really insightful and have constantly enabled guys and women just like me to get to their targets. The invaluable suggestions can mean much a person like me and still more to my fellow workers. Thanks a ton; from everyone of us.

    I will miss Beth very much. I met her about ten years ago. She has been helping me through a tough illness.
    Beth and I hit it off well right away. We used to discuss vaccines at length.
    I use to adjust her, but was unable for years and was looking forward to adjusting her again as I regained strength.
    She helped my son with Lyme.
    I will miss talking to her every 3 to 4 months.
    She made the world a better place.
    Until I see you again someday, I’m glad you’re at peace, but I sure will miss your physical presence. Love , Jerry

    To Whome It May Concern; My condolences To Beth’s family, and friends. May I introduce myself? My name is Jenny, mother of Marquis. I first met Beth Rotondo 2 1/2 yrs ago, for Marquis, Dx with autism. A year after, she took me on as a patient. My son is only 9 yrs old. One day I will tell him about Beth, and the wonderful great things she has done for our family. She will always be part of us. Even though our consults were over the phone, it was as if her (strong) spirit was present in the room. She was one powerful lady. Her connection with her patients, was always in pure love. She never made me feel like I was small or less then, even though she was capable of moving mountains. I never heared her complain about herself, or make known she was ever in the hospital. I wish I knew. I’m in tears as I’m writing this, but knowing Beth I don’t think we would want that. I must be strong. Beth once told me; “Just be yourself, because everyone else is taken.” She always knew what to say, at the right time. I know now as I always felt then, we were very fortunate to have her as a soul friend, and homeopathic. Her humor was like no other. She could always make me laugh, no matter what. How did she do it? Having Beth as a homeopath, we got the whole package all in one. I always looked forward to our consults. She would answer the phone by saying, “Hello” Funny as it may sound, the best hello expression I ever heard from anyone. Thank you Beth for everything, because you gave everything. No words can express our deep sadness. We will miss you Beth. We Love You!

    May God Bless her family, & friends.

    Jenny & Marquis Schembri,
