Donna Jean Bean, age 93, of New Philadelphia, died Monday, January 1, 2018 in Park Village Health Care Center at Dover following a period of declining health.

Born at New Philadelphia, Ohio on June 19, 1924, Donna was the daughter of the late Byron C. and Zella Florence Parcell Herron.

She was a graduate of New Philadelphia High School and married Clyde T. “Tommy” Bean at Greenup, Kentucky on June 8, 1943. Together the couple shared in 60 years of marriage prior to his passing on April 10, 2004.

Donna was a longtime member of Mt. Carmel Church. She retired from Groove Fold at Newcomerstown but worked into her late 80s for Wendy’s on the Boulevard; where her kind smile and warm hello often brightened the days of many customers through the years. She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother who also enjoyed working in her flower gardens and vegetable gardens; and even kept tomato plants up until last summer.

She is survived by her children, Sandra Olinger of New Philadelphia, Margaret “Peg” (Jim) Gallagher of Columbus and Clyde H. (Connie) Bean of Piedmont; four grandchildren, Donna “Shelly” (Richard) Lehman, Mike (Luann) Todd, Seana (Phil) Fortune, and Chris (Krista) Bean, 10 great-grandchildren and a great-great grandson.

In addition to her parents and husband, Donna was preceded in death by a son, Gary T. Bean; a grandson, John C. Kissel, III, and a son-in-law, Charles G. Olinger.

The family will greet guests on Sunday, January 7, 2018 from 1-2 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia where a service led by Pastor Brian Flood will begin at 2 PM in the funeral home’s chapel. Private burial will take place in the West Union Cemetery at Gilmore.

So Sorry to hear Beaner passed away. I worked with her at Groovfold for a lot of years an she was such a joy to work with, never a dull moment! When somebody would come up behind her a scare her she would smack whoever was close either with her hand or her purse an I lost track of how many times she smacked me then she would always appologize an feel bad but the person who scared her got an ear full! She was missed when she retired an will always be missed!

Donna was my wonderful next door neighbor on 2nd St many years ago. She was always the sunshine of every day when I got up and got my kids ready to play outside. We would talk about everything from current events to telling jokes over the fence to each other while the kids played in my backyard. We always had our flowers we planted in common and she would let me know what I was doing wrong because mine would always die and hers were beautiful. I will miss my friend of so many years ago. Prayers to the family. God bless you!
