Jean was an avid gardener spending countless hours in her garden. She was an active member of the Delaware Valley Hosta Society continually hosting events at her home in Malvern inviting guests to explore and enjoy her many, many Hosta. She was also an amazing artist and her family will cherish her many paintings and drawings.

She is survived by her children, Bret (Chutima), Brook Stevens (Sean) and Jason (Colleen); grandchildren, Cassandra Hartz (Ben), Katie Brennan, Jack Brennan and Colin Stevens; and great-grandson Colton Hartz.
