It is with great sadness that the family of Nancy
Steele announce her peaceful passing on July 3, 2009 at the age of 97 years. Born in Sweden on November 2, 1911. Predeceased by her husband
Henry in 1976. She is survived by her loving family, daughter Jane (George) McKinley, son Walter Steele, granddaughter Samantha (Kristen) Eck, and greatgrandchildren Hannah and Angus – who were loved by GG. The family would like to thank Dr. John Laing, the staff at the Nanaimo General Hospital and all other health care professionals over the years. Private family cremation. Friends are invited to an open house at the home of Jane & George – the date to be announced later.
Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there,
I do not sleep I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight in ripened grain
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled fl ight.
I am the soft star that shines at night
So don’t stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
