Jan Stephanie Zeid, February 27, 2023

Beloved wife of Stewart Zeid for almost 43 years.  Dear mother of Ashley Zeid and Brittany (Andrew) Jerram.  Loving grandmother of Aubree Rose Jerram and Xander Jonathan Jerram.  Dear sister of Robin Weiss.  Beloved daughter of the late Harold and Marlene Weiss.  Dear sister-in-law of Neal Zeid.  Beloved daughter-in-law of Marian and the late Irvin Zeid.  Dear cousin and friend.

Jan was born and raised in St. Louis and was a graduate of Parkway Central High School.  She first met Stewart in August of 1973.  After a semester at Mizzou, Jan returned home to work.  Jan and Stewart married in May of 1980, and raised two daughters, Ashley, and Brittany.  She and Stewart were very active in school activities at Ross Elementary, Northeast Middle, and Parkway North High School with their daughters.

Jan went back to work in 2001 at The Tiger’s Eye jewelry store in Frontenac.  It was a natural fit for her.  When The Tiger’s Eye closed in 2004, Jan joined Vincent’s Jewelers in Creve Coeur.  She was known as the store’s mom, responsible for greeting customers, and writing up sales and repair orders.  Jan’s knowledge of precious and semi-precious gemstones was phenomenal.  She was fortunate to find a job dealing with something she had a passion for.

Besides work, Jan enjoyed time with friends and family.  She loved traveling with their best friends, and went on many vacations together to Cancun, Mexico as well as Florida.  In addition to those trips, Jan and Stewart traveled to Spain, Hawaii, and various destinations in the United States.  Among the trips that Jan went on, she loved going to Chicago with Ashley, Brittany, and Stewart.  Jan was a voracious reader of fiction novels in the romance and murder mystery genres.  She will be missed by her family, her friends, her Vincent’s Jewelry family and their customers.
