Caitlin Joanne Bean passed from this life on Thursday, April 29, 2021. She fought the hard fight, but could not recover from the tragic accident that happened April 25. She is survived by her mother (her dearest friend) and step-father, Jessica and Michael Bradley, her younger brother, Carter, will truly miss his big sister. Also left behind are her grandparents, Joanne Parrish and Paula and Doyal Bean. Numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins from North Carolina and California will miss her too. Caitlin lived life fully and with so much gusto. She was an artist at heart- she could touch things and make them more beautiful. She loved her family, her friends and life itself. She was unapologetically herself. Caitlin was a 2020 graduate of Dade County High School. She loved her Walmart family. A special thank you to the medical staff at SICU, Erlanger Medical Center. They were so very kind and gentle. The family will receive friends from 12-3 Saturday, May 15 at the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home, a memorial service will follow at 3:00 in the chapel.

I remember how she was such a artist . I’m not an artist at all but I remember how well she could draw . I used to pick on her and call her catilyn green bean . She always laughed at that . She will be forever missed by her class mates

I had the pleasure of working with both Caitlin and her mother at Servpro, it blew me away when I found out what happened. Caitlin was a free spirit but if I put her on a task she typically stuck to it. She was a very fun person to be around even though she seemed shy at times, I would catch her and my other employees always cracking up about something. I honestly can’t think of many times she wasn’t smiling.

Caitlin it is still so hard for me to believe that you are gone. You were the most beautifully unique soul ever. I loved the fact that you had no filter and your face always said what your mouth didn’t. Four years was not enough time with you. You are truly miss and your memory will live on. Love you forever !

Caitlin was such a special person and a joy to be around. I was blessed to be her teacher in 6th grade and her high school counselor. She would often come to my office just to chat. I looked forward to seeing her smiling face and listening to her stories. She was such a blessing to many people and I consider it an honor to have been part of her life.

You were such a beautiful soul and such a ray of sunshine. No matter how bad my day was I could text you and you would make it so much better. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you, you made me who I am. You made life so much better by being yourself. Thank you for being in my life, I truly don’t know where I would be without you
Love, Your pal, Pee in the grass ♥️

My precious girl, I love you so! From the moment you were born, you filled my heart with such joy. You were a beautiful gift to this world, and your passing has left a void that no one can fill. I love you Caitlin and I'm so grateful for the years we had together. Your exuberance and love of life were so infectious- sometimes you just bubbled over! Rest gently my beautiful granddaughter. Love forever, Granny
