Juanita Jean Urban was born Sept. 21, 1934, in Mound, the daughter of John and Katherine (Hayes) Stein. She was baptized as an infant and confirmed in her faith as a youth at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Mound. She received her education in Mound, and was a graduate of the Mound High School class of 1952. In her youth, she worked at Mound State Bank.
 
On Aug. 7, 1954, she was united in marriage to James Urban at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Mound. Their marriage was blessed with four children, Thomas, Raymond, Debra and Steven. The couple resided in St. Paul until they purchased their farm in rural Glencoe in 1959. They shared 52 years of marriage before Mr. Urban’s death on March 28, 2006.
 
In addition to being a loving homemaker and mother, Mrs. Urban was a partner in the farming operation. She attended St. Anastasia Catholic Church, where she served as a librarian, rummage sale chairperson and was a member of the Council of Catholic Women (CCW). She also was a member of the Western Fraternal Association, the Hutchinson Historical Society, and volunteered at the Twice As Nice store in Hutchinson. In addition, she assisted at the adult day activity center in Biscay.
 
Mrs. Urban enjoyed embroidery, tending to her garden and traveling. She also enjoyed going to the casino and playing cards. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and playing with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
 
She was able to stay on the farm with assistance with her family. When she needed more assistance than her family could provide, she became a resident of Oak Terrace Care Center on Oct. 30, 2015.
