(Saturday - October 17, 2020) - Margaret Steiner lived a full life (October 1934-2020).

In her 86 years she experienced a deep, abiding love with Joseph, her husband of 67 years. She was a fun-loving mother and grandmother. Over the years she was a mentor, teacher, and coach to so many of this community's youth. She was a trailblazer and champion for girls athletics as she formed and coached the first girls gymnastics and track teams as well as volleyball teams for women and teens.

She was an exceptionally gifted self-taught artist who shared that gift as an art teacher for adults and children through the Dickinson County Community Schools. She shared her flair for drama, song, dance and comedy as a member and organizer of the Amidon Follies, an entertainment variety show performed by our talented local seniors. Margaret's years of service to our community was formally recognized by Governor James Blanchard and the State of Michigan for her outstanding community spirit and her contributions to public education.

Margaret lived her past few years quietly in Manorcare however, the complications from COVID-19 proved too much for this little dynamo. Her family grieves deeply for her and for all families whose lives have been impacted by this pandemic.

At Margaret's request, private family services will be held.
