Laura M. Steidley, age 92, went home to be with the Lord on January 28, 2019. She passed peacefully with family by her side. Lolly was born December 24, 1926, in Covina, California. She attended Salinas and LaVerne High Schools. Lolly went on to attend Frank Wiggins Trade School in Los Angeles, where her emphasis was dress designing and later enrolled in Mount San Antonio College, where she focused on mathematics. It was in her physics class that she met Robert Steidley, they later married and moved to Torrance, California. When the boys were at a young age, Lolly contracted polio. After overcoming and defeating the disease, she worked as a library assistant for the school district and for the City of Torrance. During her tenure with the City of Torrance, she worked at all the branches and she was the Story Time teller for the deaf and preschoolers. Lolly was always looking for the good and positive in everything she touched and had an adventuresome spirit. After the loss of her spouse she started to travel. Her first trip was with the YMCA to Italy, and from there she traveled to France, Portugal, Spain, Denmark, and many other countries. She is survived by her 3 sons, Ken, Robert, and James and their families including 5 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
A memorial service was held at the Huntington Retirement Home on January 29, 2019. The Neptune Society will place her with her beloved husband at sea. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Lolly's name to Torrance YMCA.
