Jane A. Stephan passed away peacefully Friday, April 26, 2013, at Blowing Rock Extended Care in Blowing Rock, NC, at the age of 91.
Her son, Paul, and daughter-in-law, Susan, were at her side. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who cherished all of her family.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Paul, and two children, a daughter Ann and a son Chuck.
Jane and her husband lived in various places but spent much of their life in Landenberg, PA, before moving to NC in 1979, where they lived near Linville and then the Asheville area. Jane moved to Boone, NC, in 2010 after the death of her husband. She was a resident at Appalachian/Brian Estates,
The couple was active in churches in each location, most recently in Fletcher Methodist Church, Fletcher, NC. For many years they also enjoyed traveling in their RV all over the country.
Jane's remains are being cremated. No services are planned, but a small family gathering will take place at a future time.
