Jeanine A. Steimer, 71, of White Oak and Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, died Sunday, May 28, 2023, at home in White Oak. She was a 1970 graduate of McKeesport Area High School and a member of its Reunion Committee. Jeanine began working at Mary’s Kitchen, at the lake, as a waitress, followed by assistant manager at Two Brothers Boutique at Eastland, then Lerner’s where she retired as a manager.

Geneva-on-the-Lake was Jeanine’s home as a young adult and lifelong friends were made there. This led to the lake and a cottage at Allen Court becoming her home away from home since 2012. Her aunts, uncles and cousins looked forward to vacations there and spending time with her at the cottage. She relished the role of “house mother” and everyone was welcome for coffee and cocktails, and talks on the porch. Family memories and stories were plentiful and laughter could always be heard long into the evening.

Born March 19, 1952, in Geneva, Ohio, she was the beloved daughter of the late Jean and Joan Townsend Steimer. She is survived by her sister and best friend, Janet (Fran) Spang of White Oak; brothers, Jim (Martha) Steimer of Bethel Park, and John (the late Rachele) Steimer of Saybrook, Ohio; nieces, Jessica (Brian) Sweeney, Sarah Steimer, Hannah Steimer, Paige Spang and Maura Spang; great nephews, Patrick and Matthew Sweeney; cousins; many friends and a very tight knit circle of girlfriends.

Paige and Maura were especially fortunate to have Aunt Jeanine. They loved being a part of each other’s lives and always felt lucky to have each other. Memories of vacations and funny moments will always be cherished.

Friends will be received on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. in the MALOY-SCHLEIFER FUNERAL HOME, INC., 915 KENNEDY AVE., DUQUESNE, 15110, 412-466-3300, WILLIAM B. SCHLEIFER, SUPERVISOR, WILLIAM BRIAN SCHLEIFER, FUNERAL DIRECTOR.
