She was preceded in death by her mother.
Our beautiful mother was full of kindness and compassion for people and animals. She always had warm words for everyone, except if you cut her off in traffic. She had the best smile and laugh, especially when she really got going. She would cover her mouth; rock backward, and stomp one of her feet.
Our mother was creative and inspiring. She was an avid reader with 16 pairs of readers found in varying conditions. She loved her dog, Luna. She loved her plants and was so proud of her aloe vera. She used to sew and puff paint the heck out of some matching shirts for us when we were kids. She always pushed people to want more and to be more...but to always remember where they came from.
Most of all, she loved her family. Being Grandma Bean was one of her greatest joys of her life. She was a woman of faith and often reminded us to say our prayers and to be grateful. But we are the ones that are grateful to have had you in our lives. You will be missed so dearly. We love you so much...to the moon and back.
