Obituary of Cathy Lynn Steimer

Cathy Lynn Steimer, 52, of Salisbury, left this earth on Wednesday, December 26, 2018. Born in Salisbury, she was the daughter of Mary Louise (Donaway) Steimer and the late William Gerald Steimer, Jr.

 Cathy is survived by two children, Tabitha Lynn Roessler & her husband, Christian and their two children, Paisley and Lincoln and William Richard Root of Estancia, NM; her sister, Kimberly Sue Steimer – Mason and her husband, Lee of Smithfield, NC and her niece Allison Mason.  Cathy left behind three uncles and many cousins that she loved dearly and cherished deeply.

Cathy fought a courageous, lifelong battle with cancer starting when she was just 13 years old.  She graduated from Arundel High School and Anne Arundel Community College with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  Cathy always had a huge place in her heart for children.  She was a Girl Scout leader for many years.  She spent the majority of her career teaching and caring for children.  Cathy was a passionate and active member in Relay For Life.  She just loved going to team meetings, Relay events, and most certainly loved dressing the part in themed events.  She enjoyed her grandchildren more than anything in this world.  Every chance she got, she was doing arts and crafts and spending time with her grand babies and niece.

Anyone who knew Cathy felt her kindness and compassion.  Regardless of her physical limitations she was always ready to partake in any adventure.  She loved live music, singing and dancing.  Cathy left an impression on everyone who crossed her path.

A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Saturday, January 5, 2019, 2:00 pm at the Christ United Methodist Church in Salisbury.  Cathy never wanted anyone to mourn her loss or wear black when the time came.  Cathy was a very decorated individual and her family would love nothing more than to honor her spunky spirit with bright color clothes, hair and flowers at her celebration.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her memory to Wicomico County Relay For Life and or Christ United Methodist Church.

Arrangements are in the care of Holloway Funeral Home, PA, 501 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury, MD 21804.  Please visit to express condolences to the family.
