Baptized in early infancy and later confirmed in the Lutheran faith, she remained steadfast to her Lord and Savior throughout her lifetime. A long time resident of the farming community around Milberger, she was united in marriage to Fred Steinert in 1910 and assumed her duties as a farm wife and homemaker.

They continued farming in the Milberger area for a number of years and then in 1949 they came to Russell to establish their home at 600 Grant Street. Here also, she soon became a beloved, esteemed and trusted member of the community.
