Jean L. Steinbrecher

May 6, 1932 — February 23, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend - Jean Steinbrecher. She was the epitome of generosity and love, always with an amazingly cheerful smile, and will be missed dearly by all who knew her.


Jean L. Steinbrecher, age 90 of Oshkosh, passed away at Bethel Home on Thursday, February 23, 2023. She was born in Brillion, Wisconsin on May 6, 1932, to the late Elmer and Wilma (Bastian) Schnell. Jean was united in marriage to Glenn Steinbrecher on September 5, 1953, in Green Bay.


While raising six children, Jean was active in church events and choir. Jean worked many years as the secretary for Algoma Boulevard Methodist Church and later as her husband’s partner at Oshkosh Insurance Services. She thrived on gardening, birding, and being out in nature. Jean enjoyed playing card games with her family and her bridge groups. She had a passion for entertaining and hosting events for family and friends. Jean was an active member of PEO for 42 years, recently serving as their Chaplain.
