Jean Stock passed away in Lone Tree, Iowa on Sept. 2, 2023, at the age of 104 years and 292 days.
Born Nov. 15, 1918, to John D. Musser and Mary Fountain Musser on a farm west of Lone Tree, Jean was the youngest of 11 and lived all but three years in this community.
Over the years she was a Girl Scout leader, member of the Lone Tree Fireman’s Auxiliary, member of the Lone Tree American Legion Auxiliary, lifetime member of the 96th Infantry Division Auxiliary, and lifetime member of the D.A.V. Auxiliary.
She especially enjoyed collecting rocks from around the world, listening to music, and spoiling her grandchildren.
Jean was preceded in death by her parents: John D. Musser and Mary Fountain Musser; 10 siblings: Harry Musser (Velma), Josephine Sherburne (Jack), Gladys Musser, Fay Musser (Ethel), Willis Musser (Alice), Naomi Hale (Ed), Robert Musser (Dorothy), Dana Musser (Roberta), Donald Musser (Marcella), John D. Musser IV; husband: Howard Stock; and daughter: Meredith Stock Meyer.
She is survived by daughter: Meta Stock Phelps (Garry) of Nisswa, Minnesota; five grandchildren: Rick Meyer of Lone Tree, Steve Meyer of Everman, Texas, Scott Meyer of Lone Tree, Sarah Phelps of Kent, Washington, and Tim Phelps (Courtney) of Dripping Springs, Texas; three great-grandchildren: Emma and Evan Phelps of Dripping Springs, Texas and Sydney Griffiths of Kent, Washington.
Our family would like to thank the staff of the Lone Tree Health Care Center for their attentive care provided over the years. Thank you to Promedica Hospice for their supportive care in the final days.
Per Jean’s wishes the family has requested NO FLOWERS (a waste of money in her opinion). In lieu of flowers, please consider one of the following: Make a donation to the Lone Tree Alumni Scholarship (P.O. Box 73, Lone Tree, IA 52755) or treat a friend to ice cream. Jean also suggested teach a child to walk on a barrel or stilts, volunteer to help a child read, find a 4-leaf clover, go fishing, roller skate, laugh, play a harmonica, dance a polka, and ride a bike.
