Laura Augusta Steeves
Laura Augusta Steeves, 86, of Hillsborough , widow of Milton "Mood" Steeves, went to be with her Lord and Saviour on September 6th, 2018. She passed away at the Moncton Hospital with her family by her side.
Laura was born in Hillsborough on February 4th, 1932 the daughter of the late John M. and Sarah A. Steeves. She worked at T.E. Eaton Company in her earlier years. Later she worked as a custodian at Caledonia Regional High School where she retired. Her faith was very important to her, she was a member of the Hillsborough Baptist Church. She enjoyed making bread and cookies and spent a lot of time in the kitchen baking for her family and friends. She enjoyed being with her family and enjoyed going with her family on their annual shopping bus trips when she was able. Laura was always up for a fun time and loved to laugh. She never shied away from anything whether doing a skit or just clowning around, she will be remembered for her great smile. She was glad to have maintained her Independence and stayed in her own place going to the hospital just last week. She did not want a lot of tears and sadness as she is just moving onto the next step and she would say "It is not goodbye but see you later". Until we meet again. "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5 vs.8
