Frances M. Steinberg, age 90, of Mena, passed away Friday, February 27, 2015 at Mena Regional Health System.
She was born in Wiccopee, New York on May 8, 1924 to the late Lewis A. Mekeel and Maude Taylor Mekeel. She met her husband-to-be in the Fishkill Drum Corp at the age of 16. He joined the Army and fought in World War II and they corresponded for five years. Upon his return, they were engaged and were married in 1947. She was a wonderful homemaker and very devoted to her husband and three children. After her children were grown, she worked part-time at a Hallmark card store. She was a very classy lady, always cheerful, never judgmental and family meant everything to her. Our hearts are broken with her passing, but she is with those who are already with our Savior.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Albert B. Steinberg; and her son, Allan M. Steinberg.
She is survived by son, Barry B. Steinberg of Greenville, PA; daughter, Caren and Bob Brewer Jr., of Hatfield, Arkansas; grandson, Adam and Ashley Steinberg of Rhode Island; granddaughter, Leah Warner of Scottsdale, Arizona; sisters, Beatrice Gurdineer of Montrose, New York, Charlotte R. Mekeel of Lanscaster, PA; and also her constant canine companion, Pita.
Mrs. Steinberg was sent for cremation under the direction of the Beasley Wood Funeral Home. A memorial will be held at a later date.
