Fannie Bell Beane - RIP

Word has reached us through her son, Phillip, that Fannie Bell Beane passed away unexpectedly this Sunday, 16 May 2010.

Fannie Bell Beane - 2007 Beane Family Reunion

Fannie Margaret Bell was born 14 Dec 1920 in Saint Albans, Kanawha County, West Virginia to Romie Bell and Ida Russell Bell.

Fannie married James Edward Beane [1914-1993] on 22 Oct 1939 in Russell, Kentucky. The couple were the parents of Phillip Beane and Ronald Beane.

Fannie, and her husband Jim, are well known in the Beane family for their great works in establishing the genealogy and family tree research for the family. The travelled across the United States gathering information and researching individuals in the family's history in order to make the family tree as complete as possible. Their work was inexhaustible. Fannie spent many hours mentoring me, and providing me with information she had garnered over the many years of her research. She shared freely and with a giving and loving spirit. If not for Fannie, I would not have found the wonder of genealogy research when I did, and be where I am today.

It is with saddened heart that we say goodbye to Fannie. She will be sorely and deeply missed by all.
