She is survived by her brother, Charles; sister, Rita; niece, Linda; nephew, David; and a great-niece and three great-nephews. Miss Steiner was born in Baltimore, Md., raised and educated in Richmond, Va., where she began her studies. She graduated from Richmond Professional Institute (now VCU), and continued her studies at the National Academy of Fine Arts in New York, N.Y. and the Shuler School of Fine Arts. She worked professionally for many years as a fashion illustrator and lay-out artist. Her works were published by newspapers in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Md., Richmond, Va., and Miami, Fla. She returned to fine arts, working with various media including watercolor, oils, pen and ink wash and etching. Her works may be found in private and public collections, some on display in the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., and others reaching as far as Tokyo and Bangkok.

More than 40 of her original art works were sold during a one-woman showing in Israel, with all proceeds donated toward the development of "HAI-BAR," the National Biblical Wildlife Preserve near Elat.
