Can someone translate into English the phrase "Shtimmer Bebic". I believe it is Yiddish or perhaps Hungarian or Polish in origin.

Shtimmer is a Yiddish word that means someone who has a speech defect of deficiency, probably related to the German word "stumm" = mute, as in deaf-mute. http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache:V2HFrKZ6O-UJ:www.jews-for-jesus.com/library/vays/vays09-09.htm++shtimmer+OR+schtimmer&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2 (Sorry, but only the cache version would open.) Bebic is a Slavic family name, perhaps specifically Croatian. There is also a small town in Hungary of that name. Would this make sense in your context: a person with the surname Bebic who had a speech deficiency?
