Beth Allison Steetle Reed

| January 16, 2019

Beth Allison Steetle Reed, born July 15, 1959 to Charles Robert Steetle, who survives her, and Alice Loraine (Heffernan) Steetle in Indiana, PA, was called home to be with the Lord on January 13, 2019.

Beth was raised alongside her siblings, Robin Eakin of Utica; Karen Steetle of Utica; Chuck Steetle of Utica; Brice Steetle of Utica; Scott Steetle of Utica; Keith Steetle and wife, Teresa, of Polk, and Todd Steetle of Utica.

On December 5, 1987, Beth married the love of her life, David M. Reed, Sr., of Minerva, OH, and together they raised their son, David Mitchell Reed, Jr., and his wife, Santanna Addair, of Minerva, whom was the apple of his mother’s eye.

Beth was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

Beth fought a long and hard battle to cancer and during her journey, her daughter-in-law, Santanna Addair, remained by her side.

Beth loved her life; spoiling her grandson, Wyatt Anthony Reed; sitting by the pool; gardening; cooking; and driving her husband crazy, one German Shepherd at a time, along with the other animals she took in.

She left this world as a warrior and was surrounded by her loved ones and animals.

Beth was preceded in death by her mother, Alice, and her niece, Ivy Steetle.

Beth lived a beautiful life and touched so many people’s lives; she will be missed dearly.
