Jean Stulbarg, formerly of Rancho Santa Fe, passed away peacefully July 3, 2013, at age 92, in Vancouver, WA. She was born October 26, 1920, to Helen and Henry Orton in Hollywood, CA.|
The majority of her life was spent in Cincinnati, OH. Jean attended Tulane University until WWII broke out and she met the love of her life, Milton Stulbarg. Married in 1941, they were together for 63 happy years. Jean loved having a family and being the mother of three boys. Her most important task was being a caring mother and grandmother, "the most important day in your life are when your children are born. It's what life is all about and you love them so much."
Jean and her husband traveled all over the world including China, Europe and Antarctica. Jean moved to Vancouver, WA, in 2006 to live closer to her son and family.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Milton; brother, Stewart Orton; and son, Dr. Michael Stulbarg. She is survived by her sons, John, Bill and his wife, Margaret; six grandchildren, Andy, Katy, Christina, Kelsey, Jay and Kristin; and seven great-grandchildren.
