RIP 'Too Crazy Ladies' - RVing cousins

Red and Beth the 'Too Crazy Ladies' (Julianne G. Crane)
The following feature was originally posted on May 11, 2012. Since then, Red passed away circa 2016. Beth passed away on Feb. 11, 2019, peacefully in her motor home in Mesa, Az.” RIP Crazy Ladies.

These 'Too Crazy Ladies' are longtime friends, in fact, have they have known each other all their lives, or at least all of Beth's life. Red is a tad bit older than her cousin, Beth. (Their mothers were sisters.)

Since 1994 these two strong, independent women have been a familiar presence at Quartzsite, RV rallies, and numerous dog (and horse) shows. They've been engraving name badges, license plate frames, judges badges and lapel pins.

"It took us nine husbands and 30 years to get our act together," erupts Beth in laughter.

For years Too Crazy Ladies spent most of their time on the road traveling from one event to another.

"We love meeting new people, and being around the shows," says Beth, "however, the older we get, the less we like traveling long distances." These days, while they still hit the road, most of their business is done through the Internet.

In addition, each of the ladies have a few physical challenges. Four years ago, Red had a hip replacement. "But," says Beth, "they put her leg back on wrong, and she had to have a knee replacement after that."

As for Beth, she was run over by a motor home in 1978, has arthritic hips, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and diabetes. "But, by God," says this gutsy gal, "I’m not quitting."
