Michelle Steiner

January 27, 1964 — February 23, 2024

Michelle Steiner, a resident of Mobile, AL since 1983 went to be with the Lord on February 23, 2024 after a courageous, even joy-filled battle with stomach cancer.  She peacefully passed away in the comfort of her home lovingly surrounded by her adoring children and husband, and her Momma.

Michelle was born in Grants, NM on January 27, 1964 to Joyce and Ed Scott.  She was the middle sibling between two brothers, Russell and Kevin, who she loved dearly.  She graduated from Westside High School in Augusta Georgia in 1982 where she enjoyed cheerleading, track, basketball, and horseback riding.  After graduating, she followed her older brother Rusty to Livingston University where she met Linwood Steiner.  They were married May 28, 1983.  She put her academic pursuits on hold to start a family.

She excelled as mother to her four children who are forever grateful for her sacrificial, unconditional love and christ-centered admonition.  In 1995, while raising four young children, Michelle enrolled at the University of South Alabama and began pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  She graduated from USA in 2002 (the same year her oldest daughter graduated High-School) and began a 21 year career in Education.  In 2012, she earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling.  It was Michelle’s expressed desire to use these degrees for God’s glory.  Her talent, kindness, creativity, energy, compassion, nurturing spirit, and genuine love for others was clearly seen in her teaching and counseling.

Michelle’s faith in Christ, her sure hope of Heaven, and her Joy in the Lord during her last months on this earth were a living testimony of the sovereign grace of God in her life; an inspiration to all.  In her last days, unable to eat or drink, barely able to speak, she would wake up each morning, smile, lift her eyes, and proclaim “this is the day that the Lord has made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it.”

She is survived and will be profoundly missed by her husband of 41 years, Linwood, their four children Windy (Joseph) Kees, Lauren (William) Latta, Lee (Carolyn) Steiner, Savannah (Steven) Nobles; her 11 grandchildren, Charlotte, Steven, Linwood, Bentley, Susanna, Scotty, Luke, Beau, Ellie, Rhett and Joseph; her mother, Joyce; her siblings Russell (Ann) and Kevin. 

She is also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, extended family, friends, and students who she loved dearly. 
She is preceded in death by her father Lionel Edward Scott.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Mobile Memorial Gardens on February 28th, with visitation at 10:00 and service at 12:00. 

In honor of Michelle, in lieu of flowers, the family has requested that you please consider making a small donation to HeartCry Ministries.
