Jean Stahl, nee Smith, of O’Fallon, Ill., formerly of Piggott, Ark., passed away July 21, 2020, at the age of 91. She was born to Nathan Zelmer and Luda Bell, nee Brandon, Smith on December 19, 1928, in Piggott.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Felix Stahl; her six siblings, Ezra, Oral, James, Lem, Mary Ellen and Junell; her daughter-in-law, Teresa; and a granddaughter, Allison Stahl.
She devoted her life to her family and the Church of Christ.
Jean is survived by, and will be missed by, three children, Thomas Stahl, Polly (Stephen) Stover, Jeff (Loretta) Stahl; seven grandchildren, Melissa Quigley, Anthony Stahl, Shelley Meyers, Jenny Fox, Mindy Fox Harmon, Cassie Fox, Philip Fox; along with 16 great-grandchildren.
Jean’s work here is done. She received the call home and was not scared, for she knew it is just the beginning of her next journey. As a faithful member of the Church of Christ, she was nothing but prepared and happy to reunite with family and friends she has not seen in a long time.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
