Jean Stauter

Jean Stauter was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, Aug. 12, 1932, to Loys Ameila and James Callaway Hartline. She was the sixth of seven children.
The family moved to Valliant, Okla., when she was 6 months old. She graduated high school and moved to Oklahoma City to work for a wholesale grocery company. 
She married William Conaway and together they had two children. They resided in Oklahoma City but eventually moved to Norman, Ark. After 10 years of marriage they divorced. 
She later married Robert Stauter. They blended their families and moved to Idabel, Okla., and went into the banking business. In 1968 they would relocate the family again to Hill City, S.D., where they built Stauter Lumber Comapny. 
When Jean wasn’t working she enjoyed reading, nightly walks with a girlfriend and toll painting. She was also hooked on her crossword puzzles. But mostly she loved having her grandchildren near and was always ready to play games or cards with them.  She stayed in the Black Hills of South Dakota until her death.   
Many souls were rejoicing and celebrating when she joined her loved ones in Heaven. Jean was preceded in death by her parents; four sisters; one brother; son, John Marion; and great granddaughter, Isabella Kate.
Jean went home to be with Jesus Jan. 13, 2022. She was 89. 
Thankful for a lifetime of sweet memories are  one very special sister, Sylvia Barnett of Oklahoma City; one daughter, Brenda Conaway of Hill City; three granddaughters, Rebecca Glasmann of Longmont, Colo., Corinne Nichols of Cheyenne, Wyo., and Mia (Aaron) McKinney of Port Allen, La.; one grandson, John William Camp of West Monroe, La.; 12 great -grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.   
Services will be held Saturday, Jan. 22, at The Little White Church in Hill City at 2 p.m.
