  • She was such a positive light! I will never forget my visits at her house growing up with Robin and her hospitality. My condolences to the Stein family and may Gram Rest In Peace. Love Tiffany Schettig Gonzalez

  • Our deepest sympathy to the Stein family. Jean as we knew her and my first cousin was the highlight of the weekends in the late 60's. While visiting Muzz and Puzz on Front Street it was a sure thing to go up the hill and pay a visit to the Stein Home. Jean had a contagious smile and laugh that was her signature, hospitality was always the thing when you came to visit. These memories that we have of Jean will be cherished forever. Jean you will be sadly missed, always remembered and never forgotten. May you rest in eternal peace. Lynn & Ginny Gurchik New London, Connecticut
