Her three grandsons and their wives meant the world to her, and with their support it made many days seem so easy. She especially loved her great-grandson, Peter, who she so adored with every visit.

Steiner; daughter, Shannon (Tom Wertz) Pasternak, of West Newton; three special grandsons, Seth (Nadine) Pasternak, Jesse (Jamie Kemp) Pasternak and Jake (Danielle) Pasternak; and special great-grandson, Peter Pasternak; two brothers, Clair Hollis and Jim Hollis, both of West Mifflin; and a sister, Dawn (Bill) Kosinski, of Baldwin, numerous nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews. Edie was a very special lady and was loved by all who knew her, she will be dearly missed. The family would like to thank brother-in-law, Larry Steiner, for his endless deeds of help and generosity and Edie's caregiver, Vicki Hamilton, for all her love and compassionate care. A special thank you to the neighbors, Aunt Dorothy and Phil, along with Nan and Jody, for always being there for the family.
