Mary Jane Steib
November 2, 1944 – February 24, 2019
Mary Jane Steib, 74, of Pine Beach, New Jersey passed away peacefully at home on February 24, 2019. Born and raised in Canton, Ohio to Nicholas and Anna Pastor, she grew up alongside her cherished sister Patricia. She graduated Timken High School and then attended nearby Walsh College. It was there where she hit her first jackpot and met the love of her life, John S. Steib, on the library steps. Their amazing life together started on June 18, 1966 when they married. Her husband whisked her away to beautiful Ocean County, New Jersey in 1970 where she raised a wonderful son and two daughters, obtained her bachelor’s degree in education at Georgian Court College, and started a career in government finance. Ever one to take a chance she rolled the dice again starting a new business with her husband and children, Water Works Pool Service and Supply was born in 1978. From that point on her adventures never stopped, she traveled the world with her husband and family, enjoying day trips to Atlantic City , Broadway shows in New York, family trips to Disney World, and places of adventure in Europe, Asia and Africa. Among her many titles were Chief Financial Officer in Pine Beach, NJ, helping children as a teacher’s aide in the Toms River Schools System, owner of the family business, mother, wife, grammy, and a woman who never once stopped taking care of others. Predeceased by her husband in 2012, she is survived by her son, Christopher Steib, daughter Kathryn Stegemann and her husband Heath, daughter Leslie Florke, and her sister Patricia Trubisky along with her Ohio family. Extended family includes Jody Nolan, Melissa Brownlee, and Michele Moutal. She will be remembered for her generosity and kindness to others and to say she will be missed is a huge understatement. For once in her life, she was early.

Lei Lei (Leslie) and I met when we bought our 1st home on Mill Creek, ( Big as a House Pregnant in the summer ),being the POOL VIRGINS that we were; Lei Lei, Homer (her dad affectionately called ) Marge ( her Mom affectionately called ) taught us all we needed to know about in -ground pools and then some! It started out by me getting my " Pregnancy Fix" of a CHILI DOG ALL THE WAY" from Wonder Weiner across the street from there store and hang out with them all ! We all became friends and ,Lei Lei was Finns 1 st babysitter ! My boys trick or treated at Marge and Homers; spent a couple holidays together .Finn and Declan looked forward to always driving by seeing what "Simpson" inflatables would be up and always enjoyed swimming in their pool.How many people can say they became dear friends with someone they did business with ? We were and still are blessed. May you all know your parents were loved and cherished and they are together again as HOMER & Marge and all the wonderful happy memories heal your hearts at this time .
SO FAR THE PRESENT ,YOU ARE ALSO IN SORROW(in distress and depressed); BUT I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN AND THEN YOUR HEARTS WILL REJOICE, AND NO ONE CAN TAKE FROM YOU YOUR JOY (JOHN 16:22) taken from Joyce Meyer's " WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE"

There wasn't a better pair of parents in the world. Your dad and I shared many hours at the conventions talking about family, vacations and business. We felt like two old friends. Your mom was my twin. So funny, dependable and strong. As you can tell, I felt close to both of them. I always feel your father's presence when I see a shiny dime on the floor. Their memories will live on in all of you, their beloved family. My deepest condolences. Love Sheila Wexler (Jonas)
