Jeannie Joan Mallarian

Jeannie Joan Mallarian was born July 6, 1947, in Fargo, N.D. She passed away on Jan. 23, 2022, at home with her dear friend Betty Bowman at her side.

Jeannie is preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, her husbands Junior Hellarood and Mike Mallarian and her son-in-law Glenn Davis. She is survived by her daughter Maggie Mallarian Davis; granddaughter Georgia Davis and grandsons Dylan and Spencer Davis; sister Linda (Ralph); and brother Danny (Vonnie); special nieces, nephews and many cherished friends.

She was a long-time resident in Laguna Beach who could be easily spotted working at The Jolly Roger for 25 years and then at The White House for another eight years. You also could see her frequently walking along her favorite, Main Beach, chatting with perfect strangers as if they were family or at Patch Cunningham’s toe ring booth at the Sawdust Festival. Jeannie will be missed beyond words. She truly was a Laguna Beach icon.

Stop by Dizz’s patio on Saturday, March 19 at noon to mingle with old friends and remember Jeannie, Laguna’s favorite waitress.

Light snacks and soft drinks will be provided and there will be a no host bar.

To all of you who have loved and supported Jeannie throughout the years and during her cancer battle THANK YOU!
