Jean Mildred (Herring) Stinson, age 88, passed away on July 9, 2015, at Ottawa Retirement Village. She was born August 2, 1926 at her parents’ home in Princeton, KS, the daughter of Troy Herring and Grace (Winters) Herring.

She was a member of the First Christian Church of Ottawa, Kansas Meat Processors Association, Kansas Livestock Association, National Angus Association, Franklin County Farm Bureau, Night Crawlers Camping Club, Acorn 4-H Club, and Princeton Jolly Workers 4-H Club.

Jean was a wonderful cook. She enjoyed having her family get together and feed them all. She always followed up the “get togethers” with several pictures of the family. She loved to capture the moments with her family together, especially eating at the table. She also enjoyed camping and fishing, especially on trips to Canada. She loved to watch basketball and of course most precious to her was the time spent playing with her grandkids and great grandkids. They held a special spot in her heart. She was a true family person who loved all of her family.
