Jean Cecilia (Schrader) Steen, age 80, of Davenport, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Monday, July 3, 2023 after an extended illness. Per Jean’s request, there will be a private burial service where she will be laid to rest with her husband, beside her parents at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Davenport.
