June 15, 1926 — May 19, 2014

Jean "Aunt Jean" Steward of Hayes Center passed away Monday, May 19, 2014 at El Dorado Nursing Home in Trenton at the age of 87.

Jean was born on June 15, 1926 at Alva, OK to Cyrus S. and Linda B. (Barney) Steward. The family moved to Vega, Texas where Jean spent most of her childhood. She attended school in Colorado before making a decision to quit so she could help her family. She spent many years going to different sibling's homes where she helped with the children and household chores. When her parents grew older she returned to Vega, TX to care for them. After her father's passing Jean and her mother moved to Rocky Ford, CO for a few years until her mother's passing.

She moved to Hayes Center in the late 70's where she opened Jean's Daycare. She devoted 36 years to children in and around Hayes Center until her health prevented her from working.
