Obituary

Obituary for Carolyn Jane Flesch (Steele)

Carolyn J. Steele Flesch, 71

EAST LIVERPOOL – Carolyn J. Steele Flesch, of Tiltonsville, passed away Saturday, November 30, 2019, following a long illness at the Sienna Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wintersville. She was 71.

Born in East Liverpool, August 9, 1948, she was a daughter of the late George Kenneth Steele, Jr. and Jane Allison Steele. She was a member of the East Liverpool High School Class of 1966 and lived most of her life in the Toronto area. She furthered her studies at Kent State University East Liverpool campus and Jefferson Technical College, earning an associate's degree in accounting, with honors. Carolyn had lived 15 years in Florida at one time. She worked as a bank teller for over 30 years.

She was a person of faith throughout her life, teaching Sunday school and working as a church librarian at First United Methodist Church in Toronto. She later embraced Judaism, and taught herself to read the Torah in its original Hebrew.

In addition to her being a loving sister, mother and grandmother, Carolyn's great loves of her life were her two dogs, Lucky and Fuji. She personally rescued each of them--Lucky from a box at the side of a busy highway and Fuji from a neglectful owner--and they were her loyal and devoted companions for many years.

She is survived by two sons, Rob Flesch and his wife, Jennifer, of Columbus, and Douglas Flesch and his wife, Heather, of Tiltonsville. There are three grandchildren: Zachary, Jacob and Alex.

Other survivors include three brothers: Robert Steele and his wife, Leslie, of Florida, Kenneth Steele and his wife, Marla, of Florida, and Richard Steele and his wife, Marcie, of East Liverpool.

A graveside service will be conducted at 12:00 noon Wednesday at Riverview Cemetery. The Dawson Funeral Home has been entrusted with these arrangements.

Rob, Doug, and family - I was so sorry to hear about Carolyn's passing. We got to be good friends while working together at UniBank and going to school in the evening at Jeff Tech. We had the same classes and it worked out perfect the classes I hated she liked and what she hated I liked so we were the perfect team. I am sorry I didn't know she was at Sienna Skilled Nursing I would have gone and seen here. She was a wonderful person.
