Obituary of Anna M Steelman
Anna entered into the arms of our Lord on Dec. 1, 2022.
Anna was born to Nunziata and Luigi Palmentieri in Atlantic City, NJ on Feb. 13, 1935. She attended St Michael’s School and Atlantic City High School. After high school Anna met her soulmate, Charles Steelman, and the two were married for 48 years. Anna and Charlie spent most of their married years living in Egg Harbor City. Anna retired from working for the city of Egg Harbor as a secretary in the building department. Anna was a devout Catholic. She was an active parishioner at St. Nicholas’ Church where she volunteered endlessly in ministries such as the Altar Rosary Society and spent many hours assisting in the parish school. After moving to the Fairways she became a member of St. Katharine Drexel Parish.
Anna and Charlie spent many wonderful years together and they truly enjoyed traveling. They had beautiful memories of trips throughout the US and abroad. If not traveling they were working together in their garden or watching a Philies game. Anna was extremely close to her sister Dolly. The two lived together for the past several years and gained the nickname “The Golden Girls”. Anna was a kind, loving person, quick to help in any way she could.
Anna is predeceased by her parents, her husband Charles Steelman, her brothers Pompei, August, Ralph, and John Palmentieri; her sister Angie Festa.
She is survived and will be dearly missed by her sister Dolores Flanagan, her niece and caretaker Annmarie Mullen (Bob), her sister in laws Louise Palmentieri and Nancy Waters and many nieces and nephews.
