Welcome to WillardBean.com. This site is dedicated to the life and mission of Willard and Rebecca Bean and their family. Here is where we collect and share photos, stories and recordings of their lives and keep their legacy of missionary work alive.
Willard and Rebecca spent most of their lives as Missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In February of 1915, they were asked to leave their home in Utah, and move back to Palmyra New York to care for the Joseph Smith Farm and be Missionaries and emissaries for the LDS Church in that area. What was initially a 5 year mission grew into a life. The Beans lived in Palymra for over 24 years before finally returning back to Utah.
