Rose Carrie Landis Steinke passed peacefully at her home on March 7, 2018. She was born on November 27, 1924 in Topeka, KS to the late John F. Landis and Alta R. Colter. She married Harold A. Steinke on May 26, 1951 at the First United Methodist Church in Midland.
Rose was a devoted wife, loving mother, and caring grandmother. Harold and Rose raised their family in Midland, and then moved to Beaverton, MI in 1977, where they were very active in the community. They moved back to Midland in 2005 to be closer to family. Rose always enjoyed interacting with her great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her daughter Kim Steinke, sons, Kirk Steinke, Mark (Linda) Steinke, all of
Midland; grandchildren: Kayley (Luther) Gates, Travis (Stephanie) Steinke, Jonathan (Robin)
Steinke, Caitlin (Matt) DeMayo, Aaron Steinke, and Bart Steinke; and great-grandchildren, Reagan
and Henry Gates, and Oliver DeMayo. She is also survived by her siblings Mercedes Ross, Freda Sommers, and Sonya (Harrison) Scott.
Along with her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her siblings: Adiel Landis, Cayley Landis, Nanine Noneman; infant grandson, Matthew John Steinke; daughter-in-law, Mary
Steinke; and several in-laws.
The family would like to thank Southern Care Hospice of Saginaw, especially her immediate team
of Janelle, Tammy, Gwin, Don, Dee and Randy. Their support and compassion for Rose, along with
their endless support for family during her last year of life was remarkable.
A graveside service will be held on March 19, 2018 at Midland City Cemetery with a Memorial Service held at a later date.
Smith-Miner Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences can be left at smithminer.com.
