Marie Fontenot Bean, 89, Orange

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Margie Fontenot Bean, our loving and devoted mother, and friend to all whose lives she touched. She left us while sleeping, on April 25, 2020 in Lafayette, Louisiana, at Lady of the Oaks Retirement Manor.


Margie was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana on July 6, 1931. She moved to Orange, Texas in 1956, after marrying her beloved husband, Lawrence Ray Bean.  She loved to cook, care for children and nurtured a home environment where all were welcome.  She worked at Keble's Kuttery for many years, as a receptionist and bookkeeper.  Her warm disposition, beautiful smile and contagious sense of humor would light up any room, and always brought joy and comfort to others.


Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her children strong values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.


Margie is survived by her children Dianne Mabie and her husband Chris, David Bean and his wife Georgiana, and Christine "Chrissie"  Hargraves and her husband Michael; her grandson Marqus Bean, whom she raised and he referred to her as mother; her grandsons Brandon Taylor, David Lawrence Bean, Jim Bean, Kyle Mabie, Justin Hargraves, Tyler Hargraves, and Slade Hargraves; her granddaughter Buffy Bean; her many great-grandchildren; and her dear sister Claudette Henry and her husband Danny.


Margie is predeceased by her husband Lawrence Ray Bean, her son Barry Bean, her grandson Dannon Bean, her brother Raymond "Cheeks" Fontenot, and her parents Claude and Ophelia Fontenot.
