Mary Beth was beautiful soul who will be so sorely missed by all of us.  Her family has our deepest sympathies and we share you loss. She was a true friend to our Boston Terriers.

Mary Beth Rapp, 54, a lifelong Pawling resident, died Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, at her home.

The daughter of Charles Colman and Irene (Callahan) Colman, Rapp was born in Poughkeepsie on June 19, 1958. She married Michael Rapp in St. John’s Church in Pawling on May 24, 1981.

She was a member of the Pawling Fire Department Auxiliary. She bred, raised and showed quarter horses and was a volunteer with the Northeast Boston terrier Rescue organization.

She is survived by her husband; her daughter, Christina Carlson of Sheffield, Mass.; her brother, Charles Colman Jr. of Brookfield, Conn.; and her sister, Charlene See of Pawling.

Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue (NEBTR) is comprised of volunteers based in NY, NJ, PA, CT and DE and serves Boston Terriers in need within reach of our helping hands. Most dogs in foster care for placement are adolescent to adult dogs in need of re-homing in life for a multitude of reasons and will need caring hands to guide them as they transition into new homes. All of our rescue dogs are fostered and evaluated for a 2 week minimum to allow us to assess their personality and provide them with basic foundation skills - House/Crate training, basic manners - to ease their transition into new homes. It is our belief such work in foster care better prepares dogs for success and helps forms lasting bonds.
