Mary Steimer Dale

March 8, 1929 — October 10, 2023

Age 94, of Mt. Lebanon, died Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023, after a wonderful life filled with love for family, friends and adventure.

Having grown up in a large, happy family in Duquesne, PA, Mary raised a family with husband Earl in Irwin, where they were highly involved in youth sports and where Mary held multiple leadership roles in Immaculate Conception Church organizations. Mary and Earl were masters of family camping and explored the United States and Canada with their children.  A favorite spot was Rollins Pond in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.

Mary retired as Director of National Advertising for the McKeesport Daily News in 1998 and moved to Great Falls, VA, then Warren NJ, and finally Mt. Lebanon, PA, spending those years living with her children and grandchildren until the nests were empty and she started another new chapter, moving to independent living at Asbury Heights Senior Community in Mt. Lebanon.  Her curiosity, intellect and sense of humor made each move a renewal of enthusiasm for life. 

Daughter of the late Edward and Mary Weber Steimer, she was born March 8, 1929, in Duquesne, PA.  Wife of the late Albert Earl Dale who died in 1989, she was preceded in death by daughter Carolyn in 1998 and by son Brian on September 11, 2001.

She is survived by children Kevin (Jeanette) Dale of Fernandina Beach, FL; daughter-in-law Louanne Baily; and Lauren (Ken) Rice of Pittsburgh, PA; grandchildren Emily Dale, Jacob, Russell and Rachel Dale, and Madelyn and Joseph Rice; sister-in-law Jean Steimer of Pittsburgh; as well as cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her Steimer siblings and in-laws Edward Jr., Joseph (Esther), Merl (Pola), Glenn (Reath), Jean (Joan), Orvis, Paul (Marcie), Carole (Albert) Pastrick and Felix. 

Family and friends will be received on Friday, October 20, from 3-8 P.M. in William Slater II Funeral Service, (412-563-2800) 1650 Greentree Rd., Scott Township.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, October 21 at 10 a.m. at St. Bernard Church, St. Michael the Archangel Parish, 311 Washington Road, Mt. Lebanon. 

Mary was an avid reader her entire life. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, where Mary had been a volunteer.
