1959 ~ 2012|
Our Mom, Lisa Bean Fitch completed her adventure on earth and returned Home on May 31, 2012.
Lisa was born on January 20, 1959 to David and Elaine Bean. She grew up on Crestwood Road in Kaysville, Utah, the third of ten children. She graduated from Davis High School in 1977 and then graduated from the nursing program at BYU in 1981. She married Timothy Fitch in 1982 and they raised their five children in west Kaysville on a 'mini farm' with lots of animals, laughter and much love. After they separated, Lisa moved back to Crestwood Road among old friends and family.
Lisa found joy in all of God's creations, especially mountains, lakes, spring flowers and fall leaves. She was a terrific Mom who taught love and patience by example and did everything she could to help her children achieve their dreams. She was a doting Grandma and created opportunities to see her grandsons and hug them every chance she had. Lisa had a gift with animals, children, and people with special needs and always treated those who were most vulnerable with all the love and gentleness they deserved. She was always willing to share another's burden and lighten someone else's load, even though the load she carried was sometimes very heavy. She was an angel on earth and blessed others through her love and quiet service. She is loved and missed by many.
Lisa is survived by her five children: Leslie (Kimball) Judd, Joe (Andrea), Hannah, Mark and Samantha, and her two grandsons, Caleb and Tate Judd. She is also survived by her dog Max who was by her side to the end. Also surviving, her father David E. Bean (Lois), siblings Carolie (Glenn) Parker, Shauna (Jeffrey) Yarbrough, Cory (Alayna) Bean, Gaynell (Guy) Parker, Joseph (Eve) Bean, Clark (Sharon) Bean, Emilie (Charles) Baxter, Daniel (Katy) Bean. Preceded in death by her mother, Elaine, her brother, Steven, and her niece Stephanie Parker.
Two special blessings in Lisa's life were her children, Mark and Hannah, who are currently serving full time missions for the LDS Church. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the LDS Church Missionary Fund. Lisa's children are grateful for the outpouring of love from friends and family, and for the gratitude that has been expressed for our Mom being part of their lives.
