Marjorie (Allen) Bean of Chelmsford, MA

 

5744 BeanLoving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, friend.

Marjorie (Allen) Bean, 91, a longtime resident of Chelmsford died peacefully on March 8, 2016 with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife of the late Melvin E. Bean who died in 2002. Born in Alfred Maine on December 5, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Melverta (Whitney) Allen.

Marjorie completed her education in Maine and moved to Vermont for a short time. She met Melvin and both transferred to CT for work at Pratt and Whitney Aircraft. They married in 1954 and started their family. They moved to Chelmsford in 1963. Her priority was always her family and she cherished every moment with them.   Marjorie enjoyed weekends at her Vermont get-away, trips to Florida with her sister, and traveling throughout New England.

Marjorie was a gentle, loving, honest person who had a gift of making those around her feel special. She saw everyone as equal and never placed judgment.  She was a fun mother and grandmother who never hesitated to take a road trip, jump on a toboggan, toss a baseball, or play a mean game of ping pong with her grand children. She never complained. Ever.  She was a beautiful lady in every aspect.

Majorie is survived and will be deeply missed by her 6 children, Deborah deMontigny and her husband Ken of Tyngsboro; Cheryl Nicholas of Chelmsford; Donna Kenyon of Townsend; Wendy Bean and her husband Jim Sullivan of Westford; Glenn Bean and his wife Helen of Londonderry NH; Thomas Bean of Chelmsford. She leaves 13 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. She also leaves her beloved sister Beverly Acker and her husband Albert, and many loving nieces and nephews.

She was the mother of the late Frank Bean who died in infancy, and the sister of the late Mabel Keenan, Edward Allen, Robert Allen, Dorothy Astle, Sidney Allen, Forrest (Bud) Allen, and Stanley Allen. She was the mother in law of the late William J. Kenyon, Jr.

    Dear cousins,
    All of the “Pearsons” clan were sadden to hear of Aunt Margie’s passing. She was a wonderful lady who always made us laugh. We have great memories of our many visits when we were kids. Always knew we would have a fun time. When you get 10 cousins together look out! Lots of noise, calamities, laughter, getting into mischief, yelling, smiling, did I mention the noise? Memories are a wonderful gift from God. Don’t ever forget them. Let those memories bring a smile to your face, even when you feel sad. Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Love cousin Diane (Pearsons) Lagunowich

  14. Bev and family says:

    Margie has always been blessed with family and friends.She was a good sport and traveled to a lot of places with me. I teased her about navigation as she couldn’t read a map,but if we didn’t get where intended, we got somewhere.In her young years,she helped me grow up. We went to dances dressed in jeans,white shirts,and bobby socks. Hey,it was our style.I was so lucky to have her for a few more years after our other siblings died. Al and our children really enjoyed her company. She and Al would fence with their canes and give each other a little sass.Marge and her brother Edwin had polio at the same time. We lost Edwin,Marge went on to have a happy life with her late husband Mel and her children who took care of her with love. Rest in peace,Marge, I believe Dot ,Mel, and family are waiting to see you.
    You will always be in my thoughts,
    Bev and family
