Maureen Steinberg Obituary
February 9, 1931 - July 6, 2015 This proud Los Angeles native led such a big, bold life that it's easier to list the things she didn't do. She didn't cheat, not on a diet (why, when she ate cheese and hated vegetables), not at cards, and not in the business she started and ran for 20 years, Steinberg and Associates property management. She didn't boast. Although she could have introduced herself as the developer of the first condo co-op in Los Angeles, she didn't. She'd ask about you, your dog, then maybe slip that in. She wasn't vain. In fact, her well-tailored clothes and Italian shoes were really a sign of respect for you. She didn't do things casually. Instead of just watching movies, she cataloged and cross-referenced them to Leonard Maltin reviews. When she got into model boat building? She chose the kind that requires watchmaker tools and the hand of a bomb dismantler. And never knowingly did Maureen hurt a feeling or break a heart. Until now, as her many friends, cousins and especially her partner of 30+ years and spouse since 2014, Rosemary, feel the full weight of her goodbye.
