Alma K. Bean

October 2, 1935 — April 3, 2023


Alma K. Bean, 87, of Boscawen, NH passed away peacefully at home Monday, April 3, 2023, following a period of declining health.

Alma was born in Romania October 2, 1935, to August and Olga (Rauser) Kruger, and was raised and educated in Germany. She came to the United States in 1958 where she raised six children and enjoyed a lengthy career as a supervisor with Sprague Electric and then Beede Electric.

In her earlier, more active years, Alma enjoyed traveling, camping, biking, and visiting the ocean. More recently, she spent her time at home tending to her gardens and watching the hummingbirds she lovingly referred to as “my babies.” Though her interests and hobbies changed over time, one thing remained constant throughout her life. Alma’s love for her family was always her top priority and her greatest purpose was making sure her loved ones were cared for.

Alma is survived by her husband of nearly 55 years, Gerald Bean; her children, Irene Wright of Sanbornton, NH, Raymond Hollins and wife Holly of East Andover, NH, Cindy Peterson and husband Joseph of Loudon, NH, Susie Laughy and husband Dean of Franklin, NH, Diane Ross and husband Clayton “Chip” of Boscawen, NH, and Donna Osborn and husband Jeff of Boscawen, NH. She also leaves behind many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other extended family.

Alma will be laid to rest during a privately attended committal service at Pine Grove Cemetery in Boscawen.
