What a wonderful and classy lady. Enjoyed being neighbors and walks together. Simply a joy to know. So sadden.

Mary Jane had so many good qualities that it is hard to choose the best - she had a zest for life that defied the situation in which she found herself last October.  She was determined to live life to its fullest until that final day and I hope she was able to do just that.  I think that I admire her philosophy more than anything else.  May she receive her just reward - which will  be something great.

So many great memories of Mary Jane- Buncombe Street church from basketball, handbells, choir and Sunday School.  Mary Jane always had a smile and positive thing to say.

I walked to take piano at Mrs. Steele’s house every week for my entire childhood. I wasn’t a great piano player by any means, and would have stopped taking lessons long before I did if I didn’t love her so much. She was so good to me, so positive, joyful and upbeat. Sometimes I would just ask her to play for me. She was extremely talented. What a great lady.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mrs. Steele could light up a room with her smile and loving nature, and meant so much to her family, many friends, church and community. I pray for God’s comfort and grace for her family. She lives on in Heaven and in our hearts.

I knew Mary Jane and her husband as a youth growing up in Buncombe St. UMC. She and her husband taught Sunday School and were wonderful teachers. Mary Jane had such a special gift with children and she was choir director when I was a child.

I've worked with Mary Jane for over 50 years in Crescent Music Club.  What a wonderful colleague.  I will miss her so very much; we shared many happy times in Past Presidents gatherings.  Prayers and love go with you.  Margaret Ulmer

Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you. Mary Jane touched our lives with her gift of music. She was part of our life with all our children as we watched them grow up in church. Then in more recent years, I was blessed to be with her on BSUMC trips and we took bible studies etc.

Mary Jane Steele was a lovely lady: kind, gracious, gentle, helpful, and always encouraging. May you know His “grace, mercy, and peace” at this time of loss.
