My condolences, Jerry showed me around school on my first day at NCHS in 1950. Great guy.
~ Jerry Sterner - April 9, 2020
I was sorry to read of Jerry's passing. I didn't know him as he was 9 years ahead of me in school, but I knew his parents and knew Sandy and Chip while going through school. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
~ Don & Betty Dammast - April 1, 2020
So sorry to hear about your dad. I remember him and your mom coming to our softball games. They were the nicest people ever! Please know that I am thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.
~ Leanea (Prochaska) Wales - March 30, 2020
I know we have drifted apart over the years but I do think of you often and hope you're well. I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your father. I didn't know him well, but I did know him as I had bought appliance from him through the years. He was such a kind man and clearly loved his children. Please know that I keep you, your father, and your family in my thoughts. Peace to you.

Dear Julie, Brian, Greg, and Lisa, and other family members,
I was so sad to hear that my dear Uncle Jerry is no longer with us here on earth. The good news is he is now in his heavenly home with sweet, precious Aunt Mary, and they are smiling and dancing together. I will always remember him as a positive, kind, and uplifting uncle who was always interested in what I was doing. He and Aunt Mary were like parents to me. I will never forget how he called me at the Holiday Inn in Ogallala the morning after my wedding in 1973. It was early, he woke me up, and said he was calling to say hello, wishing us well. We loved the reunions on Labor Day weekends to see your family, and have great memories of visiting you in Columbus, Nebraska, in Carl Junction (loved the creek closeby where we found fossils), and the wonderful home in the woods outside of Topeka. You have our heartfelt sympathy for your Dad who had a life well lived. Thank you so much for the video. It meant so much. Much love, Terri (Thiesfeld) and Scott Light
~ Terri Light - March 28, 2020
Our sincerest condolences to Jerry's family and all those who will miss him. He was truly one of the "good guys" and we're certain his reward in Heaven will be great. Kim & Bob Swain
~ Kim & Bob Swain - March 26, 2020
So sorry to hear of Uncle Jerry's passing. It was a very good video that you shared. I have good memories of Uncle Jerry, Aunt Mary and of the many others in the video that have since died. I miss them all. Thankfully, he was a Christian and is in eternity with our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
My sincere condolences to the family and many friends he had. Jerry will be missed!
~ GORDON THIESFELD - March 26, 2020
I enjoyed viewing the memorial video! What a beautiful tribute! My sincere condolences to the entire Stever family!
~ Janice Greenlee - March 26, 2020
Brother Jerry was a kind and compassionate man who loved his family to the upmost. My memories of Jerry include his smile, his sense of humor, always teasing everyone, and his love for Mary. He had high standards that he lived to the fullest. He always had something nice to say about those he met. I mostly admire Jerry's attitude in fighting MS. He told me one time that there was somebody out there worse off than him. Such humbleness. We miss him and know he's reunited with Mary. Rest in peace.

One of our greatest memories was our Easter Services and visits with Jerry's family while they were living in Carl Junction and Topeka. The outdoor picnics, hiding the Easter eggs, swinging over the creek on the rope Jerry lassoed to a huge limb, the campfires at night embellished with Jerry's campfire stories and Easter Sunday morning church service; all of these are treasures to recall as we remember those good times with the family. The Lord was always present in our in family get- togethers.

Hi, my name is Margaret Harney, I volunteered with Jerry at the M.S. Society and Julie used to draw my blood at the hospital. I attended Jerry's birthday party at Lexington Park Assisted Living. He was the "Best" person in the World to work with and truly a gentleman. I am glad his suffering has ended and now he is free to reunite with his wife and start their next adventure together. May God bless Jerry and the entire family.
~ Margaret Harney - March 24, 2020
Stever family. So sorry for your loss of your dad. My parents would never buy anything at Montgomery Wards unless Mr. Stever sold it to them, and if he wasn't working at that time they would come back when he was. Condolence and prayer to you.
~ Marcia White - March 24, 2020
My sincere condolences to Jerry's family. My memories of Jerry are as a hospice volunteer the past 3 years. His pleasant smile and positive attitude EVERY time I saw him was remarkable. Jerry had the unique ability to make every single person that knew him a better person themselves. Jerry was one of a kind.
~ Gordon Schmid - March 24, 2020
Just watched the video and was truly in awe of all of you. What a beautiful video celebrating Uncle Jerry and his love for family. Its been so long since we've seen one another but watching this video and seeing pictures of all my cousins and their beautiful kids just brings it all back. Uncle Jerry and Aunt MaryAnn lived such a full life together and now they're together again. Such a nice thought in this time of sadness. He will be missed greatly and you have all the wonderful moments and memories to last forever.
With love and heartfelt condolences,
~ Catherine (Kit ) Stever - March 24, 2020
I'm so sorry for the loss of your Father and Grandfather. I worked at Lexington Park for a year and I loved talking to your Dad. He was a Wonderful person and will be greatly missed. Prayers to his Family and Friends.
~ Shelley Garrett - March 23, 2020
Kenny & I both had the opportunity to work with Jerry at Montgomery Wards! He definitely was an awesome person & a pleasure to work with!
~ Pam Elder Lierz - March 23, 2020
What a wonderful tribute to Jerry. I always looked forward to see Jerry around the Labor Day. It wouldn't be complete if we didn't talk Huskers, Jayhawks, Wildcats, Royals and Chiefs. It just wasn't the same when Jerry couldn't make it to Nebraska City and DeAnn and I always cherished when we were in Topeka, we stopped by and visit him. The first thing we noticed as he met us was his motorized scooter having a Husker logo on it. We're sorry, do the outbreak of the Corona virus, that we weren't able to come down for the memorial services. Uncle Jerry, you had a wonderful family that I always enjoyed visiting. It was great, before your passing, you witnessed Nebraska win 5 National Championships, for the Royals to win two World Series, and for the Chiefs to Super Bowls. Enjoy your eternity in heaven with your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and your the rest of your loving Family.
Fred and DeAnn Valverde.
~ Fred Valverde - March 23, 2020
Our sympathy to you all! Loved the video, those family reunions were a blast! I hope the Mitzner reunion has continued in heaven! God bless!
~ Claudia Kraus - March 23, 2020
It is with heavy heart to learn of the passing of our dear friend Jerry. Jerry was more than a friend, he was a kind, generous loving man to many. Some 40 years ago Jerry became a mentor and ‘ 2nd father’ to me in my formative years growing up while hoping to become a gentleman and caring man as he. He always challenged and inspired me. The Stever family has always and will continue to be an important part of our lives. Blessings and Love to the Stever family. Jim and Sylvia Frieze Columbus, NE

Jerry was one of the people I and two other ladies took holy communion to on Sunday mornings. He was a true gentleman and a joy to visit with. He also kept us informed of some of the other Catholics in the building. We will miss him very much.
