Marcia Bein Obituary

Marcia Marie Bein (nee Jensen), 85, of Ringwood, peacefully passed away Tuesday, September 19, 2023, at JourneyCare, Barrington.  She was born May 9, 1938, in Chicago, to the late James and Evelyn (nee Petersen) Jensen.

Marcia grew up in Wooster Lake in Ingleside, where she loved to spend time at the beach.  She was a 1956 graduate of Grant Community High School.  While at Grant, she was prom queen and played the lead in many school musicals.  Most importantly, Marcia met her high-school sweetheart, Robert “Bob” Bein, and they went on to enjoy the next 69 years together.

Marcia enjoyed singing in church choirs, gardening, traveling, crocheting, sewing, painting (rosemaling), spending time boating on the Chain of Lakes, and was known to tell a good joke.  She was a former administrative assistant at Big Hollow, Spring Grove, and Warren Schools.

Survivors include her husband of 65 years, Bob Bein; sons, Mark (Suzette), Gary (Angela), and Douglas (Ana Cordova) Bein; grandchildren, Erica (Sean) Kypreos, Jessica (Ryan) Hoelker, Lyndsey (Bryce) Holevas, Joseph Bein, and Tyler B.; great-grandchildren, Peyton, Addison, Easton, and Harrison Kypreos; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Marcia was preceded in death by siblings, James Jensen and Linda Nolan; and a host of loving dogs—especially Rocco.

Visitation Saturday, September 23, from 9 a.m. until the time of service at 11 a.m., at Hamsher Lakeside Funerals & Cremations, 12 N. Pistakee Lake Rd., Fox Lake.  A reception will immediately follow.  Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Marcia's name to Shadow Jumper, appreciated.  Shadow Jumpers is a nonprofit whose mission means a lot to us and Marcia’s 12-year-old magical great-granddaughter Addison. Addison was born with a rare genetic disease, Erythropoietic Protoporphyria  (EPP)— this rare disease causes her to be extremely allergic to the sun as well as causes liver failure. Marcia loved every moment she spent with Addison, as they had a lot in common. Shadow Jumpers provides meaningful experiences and a sense of community to individuals and families living with sun-related disorders and disabilities, like Addi. Shadow Jumpers allows families to go on sun-proof vacations, assists with retrofitting their homes, and provides financial help to families behind on their bills due to medical expenses, and so much more. They always go above and beyond for their families.  This year, Shadow Jumpers picked Addison and they entirely built/ renovated a bedroom and bathroom for Addi in the basement, along with fully furnishing the room for Addison. 

Thank you for loving Marcia and her family.
