Mary was born in Mauston, WI to Earl and Isabel Fraser on March 7, 1937. She was married to the love of her life, Howard Steiner, in Bellingham on August 20, 1954. Mary enjoyed ceramics, crocheting, and was a graceful dancer – taking part in both square and round dancing. However, there was nothing she enjoyed more than spending time with her family and spoiling her loved ones.
She is predeceased by her parents, and her sister Joyce Sapp.
Survivors include her husband of 65 years, Howard; son, Larry Steiner; daughters, Linda Cochran and Nancy Keel; granddaughters, Jaimie (Dan) Larson, Nicolle (Shawn) Molner, and Krissy (Craig Smith) Keel; grandson, Ryan Cochran; and 6 beloved great-grandchildren.
Mary was laid to rest at Greenacres Memorial Park at a private family service. An open house-style celebration of her life will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 20th from 2pm-4pm at Moles Farewell Tributes Greenacres (5700 NW Dr. Ferndale).
