Meet Shirley (Steckmyer) Gleason and Jean Steckmyer. Not only are they friends but they are also brother and sister. Our Primrose “family” even reunites families.

Shirley and Jean were both born and raised in Grand Island along with two other brothers, but after graduation, they both went their separate ways with families of their own.

Shirley and her family lived in many different locations, but lived in Texas for the past 20+ years. She moved to Primrose Retirement Community in July of 2012 to be closer to some of her children.

Jean and his wife Joyce Steckmyer lived many years in Central City, Nebraska where they owned and operated a business together. After retirement, they lived at Primrose for about a year (2010-2011) and then returned to Primrose in September of 2013. Shirley has an Assisted Apt. and Jean and Joyce live in an Independent Apt., but what fun for these siblings and friends to get to see each other at mealtime, play Bingo together, and enjoy social events all within the same community.
