Obituary

Emily F. Steere entered this world on December 18, 1927 in Chicago, Illinois, born to Martin and Katarina Foys. She left this world peacefully on Thursday, Feb 13, 2020 at her home in New Hope, PA. Emily was preceded in death by her loving husband, Manson F. Steere; four siblings, Martin Foys, Joseph Foys, Albina Hook, and Alice Foys-Coyle; niece and nephew, Margaret Ciesla and Richard Foys. She is survived by her son and his wife, Michael G. Matturro (father Ben Matturro) and Loran M. Lobdell-Matturro from New Hope, PA; her granddaughters Claire E. Matturro and Lauren M. Matturro (their mother Heather M. Martin), her infant great granddaughter Ariuna Orenda Matturro (mother Claire Matturro/father Leon Yerenburg); her nieces and nephews: Robert M. and his wife, Melinda R. Foys, Bishop Roger J. Foys, Bryon J. Foys, Christine M. Foys, Catherine A. Foys-Fleury, and Martin K. Foys

A loving mother, Emily worked as homemaker, real estate agent, and as an administrative assistant at many different businesses over the years including the Headquarters Field Command of the Defense Atomic Support Agency in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she received achievement recognition for her duties. She was clear thinking and very aware of political affairs and worldly news until the end of her life and had the capacity for great attention to detail. She was known to family and friend for her sparkling eyes, her smile, the directness and an attitude that let her always tell you what was on her mind. Surprisingly, her name was hard to pronounce by her other young siblings and later her nephew. She was affectionately nicknamed “Milche” and “Emenee”. She had a love of family and the depth, complexity and richness of generations. She could by memory tell you the dates of birth, death, marriage, baptism, and confirmation of everyone in her family. She was memorable and fair to all she met. Her faith in God kept her strong her whole life and she often supported charitable organizations that help the poor.

Emily will be laid to rest with her husband, Manson, at the Fort Logan National Cemetery after a visitation and a Mass at the Archdiocese of Denver Mortuary.

Donations can be made to any non-profit group in her name that provides assistance to those in poverty or in need of help. She often prayed for those who were alone or abandoned.
