Jeneanne Hutto Bean passed away, peacefully, on Oct. 30. She was born in July, 1939 and grew up in Black’s Bayou. She was a member of Little Cypress Baptist Church, graduated from Lutcher Stark High School where she was a Rope Twirler in the Bengal Guards, and always loved to dance. She drove a school bus for Little Cypress-Mauriceville for many years and then became a tour bus driver in Arizona before she retired in 2000.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father, “Red” and Katherine Hutto, and sister, Patsy.

She is survived by five daughters; Kathy Payne Thrailkille of Orange, Kim Payne Alexander of Lake Charles, Penny Stone and spouse, Karen, of Seattle, Wa., Danna Denton and husband, Greg, of Orange and Dorothy Bean, of Orange; seven grandchildren, Sara Thrailkille-Anderson and husband, Arden (“Chip”), Katy Thrailkille, Wesley Thrailkille, Taylor Denton, Korey Denton, Calder Stone, Graham Stone and a great-grandson, Trey Anderson.

A gathering of friends and loved ones to honor and celebrate her life is planned for Saturday, Nov. 10 at Danna & Greg’s home, with a private graveside memorial at Wilkinson’s Cemetery on Sunday. In lieu of flowers, “Mimi” would ask that you make a donation to your favorite church or charity in her honor.
