Anita Marilynn "Lynn" Steele

May 13, 1945 — September 29, 2021

Anita Marilynn “Lynn” Steele, age 76, of Meadowview, Va., went home to Heaven on September 29, 2021, after passing away peacefully in the home she and her husband shared. Lynn was a very warm and loving woman who would rather be outside doing yard work than inside cooking. She was proud of her flower gardens and enjoyed taking care of them. Lynn was an attentive and caring mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was a best friend and supporter to her only son, John. Her granddaughter, Kalyn was the light of Lynn’s life and the times they spent together were filled with love and joy.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Worth Farris and Vera Farris; and numerous aunts and uncles.

Lynn is survived by her husband of 56 years, Bob Steele; son, John Steele; sister, Carole Blevins; granddaughter, Kalyn Steele; sister-in-law, Judy Barnes; a special nephew, Ric Jackson; many other nieces and nephews; and many friends.
