Beth Ann Dristas, 58, of Indianapolis, has left us to be with her Lord after a long and courageous battle with cancer that returned fifteen years following her initial triumph. She passed as she lived, beautiful, funny, loving, graceful, and filled with faith. Selflessness has defined her and will continue to do so until the end of time. She leaves behind her adoring husband, daughters, son-in-law and grandson. Her cherished siblings and their families along with countless friends are as equally heartbroken as they are grateful to have had her in their lives for far too short a time.
Beth was born to the late Robert & Gloria Wojkovich in Gary, Indiana on October 6, 1964. Beth is a proud graduate of Andrean High School-Class of 1983 and Purdue University-Class of 1987. Beth was a very talented Interior Designer, and her work can be admired all around the state of Indiana. Beth was a long-time member of St. Jude Catholic Church in Indianapolis and previously sat on the Finance Board, Parish Council and “M.O.M.S.”, President, Room Parent Coordinator. Most recently Beth enjoyed working with St. Vincent De Paul as the “Coordinator of Changing Lives Forever. She could also be found helping in the family business at Churchman Animal Hospital PC. Beth enjoyed entertaining friends and spending time with family. She was an accomplished slalom water skier, a fierce cornhole competitor, as well as a gifted painter, gardener and cook.
