I, John A. Miller, Mayor, City of Fernandina Beach, hereby order that City flags at all City facilities be lowered to half-staff until 5:00 PM, April 30, 2020, in memory and recognition of MRS. JOAN BEAN.
Mrs. Bean passed away on April 22, 2020, after a lifetime of dedication to the City of Fernandina Beach, which included operating a successful downtown business and, with her husband, Lewis “Red” Bean, raising a large family of nine children: Diane, Mark, Warren, David, Drue, Mason, Gary, Steven, and Aaron, who formerly served as City Commissioner, Mayor, and State Representative and now serves as a State Senator, representing the City of Fernandina Beach. Mrs. Bean was also the grandmother of several grandchildren.
Mrs. Bean’s presence and comments, both witty and insightful, but always polite and respectful, will be missed at City Commission meetings.
On behalf of the City Commission and the entire community, please accept my condolences and support during this time of grief.
