Marie K. Steve, 64, of Dubuque, died Monday, February 27, 2017 at home surrounded by her family. Private family funeral services were held. Burial will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery at a later date.
Marie was born on March 6, 1952 in Dubuque, the daughter of Richard and Virginia (Williamson) Pregler. She graduated from Senior High School in 1970. On June 2, 1972 she married the love of her life Larry Steve at Holy Trinity Catholic Church.
She was blessed with two children, Angela and Chad, whom she devoted her life to. In addition to raising her children, Marie worked side by side with her family at Burt Steve & Son Garage in the office, greeting guests and managing the books.
A natural care-giver, Marie would do anything for a person in need - whether it was a kind word, advice, down to the shirt off her back - nothing was out of the question. Marie especially loved spending time with her grandchildren - she would spend hours playing with them and making sure they didn't have a want in the world.
Surviving is her husband, Larry Steve; her son Chad (Jessica Rapp) Steve; grandsons, Scout and Cash Steve; sister, Judy Thorpe; nieces, Allie, Abby and nephew Kaiden; son-in-law, Peter Leisen; and granddaughter, Sophia Leisen.
She was preceded her in death by her father; her daughter, Angela K. Steve Leisen; and mother and father-in-law, Maxine and Burt Steve.
Marie’s family would like to extend a special thank you to April Till, Jeanne Foht, Hospice of Dubuque and anyone else who helped our family and Marie during this difficult time.
