Leslie Ann Beans, age 58, of Dover, died in a quiet, beautiful moment on Sunday morning, March 15, 2020, in her residence, surrounded by her loved ones, following a brief battle with cancer.

Born in Union Hospital at Dover on December 11, 1961, Leslie is survived by her father and step-mother, John and Ruth Roth of Dover.

She was a 1980 graduate of New Philadelphia High School and a longtime employee of ProVia Door at Sugarcreek. Leslie was a member of Winfield United Methodist Church and enjoyed traveling. She especially enjoyed trips to Montana and most recently made a very special trip to Punta Cana. She will always be remembered for her smile and her dry sense of humor. Family meant everything to Leslie and she especially enjoyed holiday gatherings and Thursday night dinners.

In addition to her father and step-mother, Leslie is survived by her three children, Kelsie (Raymond) Shanefelt of Dover, Jordan Beans of New Philadelphia and Jeremy (Maggie Murphy) Beans of Dover; her beloved grandchildren, Emma Shanefelt and Mason Beans; her longtime companion, Jim Loibl of Dover; her siblings, John (Vera) Roth of Woodsfield, Joseph (Jeanmarie) Roth of New Philadelphia and Linda (Tim Humphrey) Miller of Stonecreek and her nieces and nephews, Veronica, Floie, Sam, Rachel, Abby and Timothy.

Leslie was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Emogene (Demuth) Roth; an infant brother, William Roth and a nephew, Terry Roth.

Leslie deserves a beautiful tribute. However, we appreciate in this unknown time with the COVID-19 pandemic that attending a visitation may not be in your best health interest. Please be with the family in prayer. Should you be able to celebrate her life, friends may join the family from 4:00 – 6:30 PM on Thursday, March 19, 2020, in the Geib Funeral Center at Dover for a memorial visitation.

Memorial contributions in Leslie’s name may be directed to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Avenue SW, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

Heaven welcomed a beautiful soul. Les and I always sat close to each other I was the Q to her R. I saw her last at our 15th, class reunion and a few chance meetings after that. When I remember her I will always see her in her bibs and her boots joking about her hairy legs. May the many smiles she left you with carry you all until you meet again.

Leslie became a valued member of our Pinewood Community very quickly. Her sweet personality and amazing sense of humor will be sorely missed. She became my hero during her cancer journey....she was warrior! Our hope is, Kelsie, Jeremy, and Jordan, that her resilience, compassion, intellect, and humor will carry you and all her grandchildren throughout your lives. Dave and I are better people for having been blessed by her friendship! Good bye sweet friend...see you in Gods palace.

I worked with Leslie at Kent Elastomer Products in Winesburg. She was a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. When we were laid off from our jobs I got a phone call saying she had located work at ProVia and asking if I found work. She was exceptionally caring that way. My sympathies to members of her family.
