ANNE STEINBERG Anne Steinberg, a long-time Tucson resident and one of the founders of Old Pueblo Traders and the Vicky Wayne store, died Friday morning, April 27th, at 94 years of age. Graveside funeral services will be held at East Lawn Cemetery at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1st. In memory of Anne Steinberg, my mother. Always the bell of the ball. My mother, Anna Rachel, was born in Poland in 1912. She immigrated to the United States as a young child with nothing but an indomitable spirit and a dream for a better life. Anne got her first job when she was only 14. This was in New York. Her mother had admired a tea set she had seen on a push cart, and with her first paycheck, Mom bought Grandma that tea set. Family is what my mother lived for. Everything that she and my Dad built was for their family. Not just Vicki and me, but nieces, nephews, sisters, brothers, and in-laws. Anne believed in helping the community. When we lived in New York she was honored as "Mrs. Hadassah" in seven states. She continued her commitment to Hadassah here in Tucson. Anne built Old Pueblo Traders and Vicky Wayne with creative tenacity and natural business acumen. She never had formal business training -what she did have was a huge talent and that beautiful spirit she came to this country with. My mother, Anne Steinberg, was a pioneer. Few women of her time or since have accomplished what she did. She loved her family with abandon, and we loved and still love her. She is survived by daughter Monique; grandchildren Lacey and Justin; great-grandchildren Drake, Layla and Gavyn; and her sisters Faye and Edna. Mom, the last dance is for you. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
