Edith Steele

The death of Edith Steele occurred on May 7, 2016 at the Saint John Regional Hospital surrounded by family. Born in Saint John, NB on August 28, 1922. She attended Saint John High School and graduated from Rothesay Netherwood School.
She is survived by her four children Michael (Joan) Steele, of Nauwigewauk, NB; Mary Jane Steele of Saint John, NB; Barbara (Wendell) Sicard and Joseph Steele both of Nauwigewauk NB. Three grandchildren, Tamara Steele (David) of Saint John, NB; Gregory (Hilary) Steele of Saint John, NB; and Michael Steele of Hampton, NB; brother, John (Patricia) Gandy of Oakville, ON.
She was predeceased by her husband Joseph Steele, daughter Joanne Steele and brother William Gandy.
Edith volunteered her services in World War 2 and risked her life in London during the bombings. She worked at the Queen Victoria Hospital on a ward for burn victims of the war. She was a kind and gracious person who always put others first. She loved to engage with people of all ages and walks of life. Her giving and compassionate nature was ever present. She had many interest but it was classical music, travel, genealogy, gardening, birding and wildlife sightings that brought her the most joy. We were truly blessed to have such a lovely lady as our Mom and she will be greatly missed.
Our family would like to extend our thanks to caregivers, Amy Lucas and Priscilla Brown for the wonderful support and care they gave our Mom.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John (634-7424). There will be no visitation. A celebration of Edith’s life will be held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Rothesay on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 11:00 am.
Donations may be made to Romero House.
