M. Elaine (Barron) Steeves, 69, of Hillsborough
passed away peacefully on December 4th, 2017 at the Moncton Hospital
with her family by her side.
Elaine was born in Moncton on November 29th, 1948 the daughter of the late Maurice "Mike" Anthony Barron and Muriel (Pearson) Barron. She was lovingly raised by her stepmother,Lois (Ives) Barron, as her birth mother passed away when she was four years old.
Elaine worked at the Moncton Hospital for 15 years. She attended the Hillsborough United Church. Elaine had a one of a kind personality and loved to laugh. She would fill the room with her wit and sense of humour, would love to tell stories of her life experiences and was always generous, kind and welcoming. When she was more confined to her home, she did not stay idle. She kept busy with visitors, crocheting, puzzles, sudoko and reading. She loved her family very much and was quick to tell everyone of all of her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments and how they were doing. They were definitely her pride and joy. She felt blessed to have met and married Russell, and cherished their love and time together. She would want everyone to remember her in happy times and to have a laugh in her honour as you reminisce and tell funny stories about your times together. She was a loving and beautiful person. "May fond memories cling".
She will be deeply missed by her husband, Russell A. Steeves; daughters Veronica Alward of Edmonton, AB, Jacqueline Milner (Sergei) of Fall River, NS and Samantha Milner of Beaumont, AB; son, Michael Milner of Beaumont AB; her treasured grandchildren, Danielle, Laura, Nicole, Jesse and all of her segregate sons, daughters and grandchildren; sister, Joan Cameron of Hillsborough and Frances Steeves (Roy) of Salem Rd.; brothers, David Ives (Judy) of Harvey Station and John Ives of Winnipeg, MB. She will also be missed by several nieces and nephews and by all of Russell’s family and her extended family.
Besides her parents and step-mother, she was predeceased by sisters; Marion (Clinton), Louise (Garnet), Mardi (Stewart), Muriel "Betty"; brother's, Jim and Bud; brother-in-law, Blair and niece Nancy.
