Obituary Condolences

Jean Myers Colton

Jean Myers Colton passed away peacefully, at age 96, in her home in Belvedere, California, as she wished. A third generation San Franciscan, she attended Lowell High School and Stanford University. She was married to Lenard Colton, who predeceased her in 1977. Jean will be remembered as a wonderful mother to her four children, a dear friend to many, a consummate traveler, a dedicated community volunteer, a patron of the arts, and a woman of strong will and determination. She'll probably best be remembered for her annual Fourth of July party, which began in 1954 and continued through last year.

Jean is survived by her children, Wendy, Larry, Andrea and Bruce, as well as her grandchildren, Stacey, Wade and Nick Patten, and sister-in-law Faye Marshall. She will be missed by many, but wonderful memories will live on.
