Beth Schucker was a champion of jazz. Her Maryland license plate read "Save Jazz" . The inscription was famous around Oxford, Maryland where she and her husband Ray retired after careers at NIH in Washington DC where they raised three daughters. Beth was an annual visitor to Key West, reviewing restaurants for various publications and researching the history of the local shrimp industry. 
Widowhood launched her into the art of bar stool dinner conversations and immediate friendships with interesting people. 
An excellent cook and consummate hostess, she threw great cocktail parties at Truman Annex.
In recent years she and her beloved companion Lee Phillips could be found daily at Fort Zac reading under the pines and watching the beautiful sunsets. 
Her goal last January was to recover enough strength to get back to Key West but sadly it was not to be, She lived a vibrant 79 years. We miss her.
