    I read with admiration about Jean's life and family. I am Charlie Stebner's daughter, Marilyn, and was so pleased that your family remembered mine. I know that Dad had a special relationship with his dental assistants and they were truly members of our family. Condolences to you all for your loss. Marilyn Stebner Kite

    Jean had a wonderful sense of humor and always found joy in everything. We shared many great times while quilting at Trinity Lutheran Church. I will miss her smile, laughter and positive outlook on life. Until we meet again, R.I.P.
