Kristen Elizabeth Bean

Kristen Elizabeth Bean entered this world on Sept. 28, 1989, and entered into heaven on Aug. 22, 2014.

Kristen was a special angel, born to show the love and miracles of the Lord, and teach others. She had many medical challenges but her spirit was unwavering. Her smile and laugh made everyone around her smile too. She proved that a true quality of life is about being loved and cherished unconditionally and giving this back to others. She will be greatly missed by all those who had the pleasure of having her in their lives.

Greeting her into heaven along with the Lord was her uncle, Scott Morris; great aunts; and great-grandparents.

She is survived by her mother, Tracy Morris, and her father, Jeffery Bean (Tineka and their daughter Emma); her sister, and nephew Shannon and Jackson Bean; grandparents, Joann Nutter, Olis Morris (Judy and their son Kelly), Michael Bean, and Sara Donna; her aunts, Anne Hart (Terry), Kelly Hopkins and Jennifer Bean (Norah); many cousins; a great-uncle; and her special friends, Shannon Minko and family.

She graduated from Parkersburg South in 2009. She was often seen at Parkersburg South football and basketball games with her mother and grandmother Joann, with whom she had a special bond and who taught her a love of sports.

Services will be 2 p.m. Monday at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, Mineral Wells, with the Rev. Kevin Lantz officiating. Visitation will be Monday from 1-2 p.m. at the church.

Leavitt Funeral Home, Parkersburg, is assisting the family with arrangements.

Donations may be made in her memory to the Erickson All Sport Facility instead of flowers.
