Janet “Jan” Slominski-Bean – dear wife, mother, nana, and friend to all, was unexpectedly called home by Lord Jesus on March 16th, 2021 in East Wenatchee, WA at the early age of 69.
Jan was born in Eugene, OR on April 16th, 1951 to Duel and Doris Smalling. She attended Lynwood High School in Lynwood, CA and attended Lane Community College in Eugene, OR. Jan has always had a special place in her heart to serve and care for others. She followed that calling and was a nurse for 18 years in Corona, CA.
Jan call Norco, CA her home. She married Robert “Bob” Slominski on November 15th, 1969. They were gifted with a son Duel Lance Slominski on March 9th, 1973 and adopted a daughter Heather “Heathie” Sue Slominski on January 11th, 1985. Bob passed away on March 30th, 1985 – he was a retired Los Angeles Police Department Motor Officer. Jan was given another chance at love on November 18th, 1988 when she found the courage to ask Gregory “Greg” Karl Bean on a date for coffee in which she did not drink. Jan and Greg married on May 18th, 1990. Jan and Greg relocated to East Wenatchee, WA in December of 1993. They settled into the Wenatchee Valley and made a new life together where they lived happily for 28 wonderful years. They gained a wealth of friendships over the years who were all considered family as she made a place in her heart for all she came into contact with.
Jan, as we all know, loved the Lord, and walked with Him every day. Her laugh was contagious, and her smile would light the dark. She enjoyed camping with her friends, being with her women’s church group, and never turned away from a challenge. She enjoyed entertaining, gardening, and the ever-cherished family time. She took great pride in being “Nana” and loved all of her grandchildren. She enjoyed swimming in the pool where she taught her grandchildren to swim, and always stated she wanted to be a dolphin since she loved the water that much. Jan also loved providing couples with a wedding venue to be able to showcase her beautiful property that her and Greg worked so hard to create.
Jan is survived by her loving husband Greg Bean of East Wenatchee, WA; her daughter Heather (Garrett) Curtis of Moses Lake, WA: brother Roger (Diane) Smalling of Miami, FL; grandchildren Gabriella, Caden, Kai’ler, Timber, and Natalia; along with many other family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents Duel and Doris Smalling, first husband Bob Slominski, sister Marcia Dean, and son Lance Slominski.
