Past Grand Bethel Honored Queens

After the successful 1974 term of Pennsylvania Honorary Grand Bethel, Grand Council decided to turn the Honorary Grand Bethel into an official Grand Bethel. Mrs. Judi Grove, PHQ, outgoing Grand Guardian, headed a committee for organizing the ritual and bylaws for this new order. In August 1975, during Debbie Gross’s term as Honorary Grand Bethel Honored Queen, Supreme Council accepted our application for Grand Bethel. We were to be known as the Mary Etta Wright Grand Bethel after our first Supreme Guardian from Pennsylvania. In June 1976, at Indiana University, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Judy Millhouse was installed as the first Grand Bethel Honored Queen in a ceremony following Grand Council installation. Miss Jackie Steele and Mr. G. Clayton Seaman were elected Grand Bethel Guardian and Grand Bethel Associate Guardian. Since then, Grand Bethel has been growing and changing to have the most productive Grand Bethel possible.

The very first meeting of the Mary Etta Wright Grand Bethel was held on July 9, 1976 at Patton Campus. Judy Millhouse was the first Grand Bethel Honored Queen. Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Reese was the Grand Guardian at the time. The first Grand Bethel Guardian was Miss Jackie Steele and Mr. Clayton Seaman was Grand Bethel Associate Guardian.
