It is with great sadness that the family of Marie Beulah Steever, wife of the late Joseph (Joe) Arthur Steever announce her passing at her home on November 19th 2022 as per her wishes.  She was the daughter of the late Harry and Bertha Young and was born in Bryants Corner NB on June 1, 1925.

Marie moved to Fredericton at 16 and worked at the Grand Hotel and waitressed at the Princess grill.  She met Joe and married in June 1944.  At Princess grill she met her lifelong friend Barbara LeGassie and had many good times travelling on bus trips.  When Barbara passed away, she continued to travel with Dad and friends.  Marie and Joe purchased their home on Hanson Street in 1958 where they resided for 52 years and brought up their family.  She was a stay-at-home mom while the children were growing up and then went to work in retail until she retired.

Marie enjoyed knitting, reading and crossword puzzles until her eyesight failed. CNIB provided her with talking books which helped pass the time.  She was also a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion for 55 years and she was ready to lend a helping hand with Bingo, banquets and distribution of the poppies.  Marie and Joe had many a good time at the legion participating at activities and attending Friday and Saturday might dances.

She is survived by her children Barbara (Late Danny), Sheila (George), John (Mabel) and daughter-in-law (Paulette Price-Steever).  She was predeceased by her husband Joseph (2012) and son Billie (2021).  She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.  She is survived by her 6 grandchildren, Matthew, Angela, Jill, Lisa, Kyle and Jeremy, 10 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews in Canada and US.

The family would like to thank, Extra Mural for always being there when we called, to her angels from Bayshore, Lynn, Connie, Connie, Wendy, Marlene and Debbie.  She loved you all and the family thanks you for all your care, compassion and kindness, Thank You also to CNIB for all your help when her vision deteriorated.

Resting at Bishop’s Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road, Fredericton on Thursday November 24th 2022 from 6-8 PM.  A Funeral Mass will be held from St Dunstan’s Catholic Church on Friday November 25 at 11 AM.  Interment in the spring at Forest Hill Cemetery.

Due to Covid, there will be no reception.  The family requests that everyone wear a mask.
