Jean was preceded in death by Gene, her husband of 52 years; parents, Garland and Alta Stump; and brother, Roxel Stump. She is survived by her daughters, Sharon (Tom) Dykstra of Byron, Michigan, and Pam (Bill) Thompson of Tallmadge, Ohio; her son, Don (Diane) Boggs of Clinton, Ohio; her sisters, Susan Nutter, and Marge Gherke of Grantsville, WV; and her brother, Mike Stump of Parkersburg, WV.

A memorial service will be held at noon on Thursday, April 19 at the Bacher Funeral Home, 3250 Greenwich Rd., Norton, Ohio, where the family will receive friends from 10 a.m. until the time of service. Pastor Steve Bucy will officiate.
