It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Nancy Lucille Steeves on Sunday, November 14, 2021 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Born on June 20, 1953, she was the daughter of the late James McClean and Florence Sarah (Swan) Craig.
Nancy will be missed by her husband of 39 years, Richard Steeves; children Angela Lynne Steeves and Lisa Dawn LeBlanc, grandchildren Abbigail LeBlanc and Hope Smith, beloved cat Ruby; as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.
Nancy had a passion for animals. She spent most of her life caring for one critter or another. She had volunteered her time in her earlier years fostering animals and caring for them when they needed a home to call their own.
Friends and Fellowship with NB Mental Health was a large part of her life. Mental health of others and herself was very important to Nancy. She made many friendships there that she cherished.
Nancy could often be known as the jokester. She was always trying to make others laugh or feel good. Her corky personality will be missed by her family and friends.
At Nancy’s request, there will be no funeral or visitation. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Oromocto SPCA and Muscular Dystrophy Canada would be appreciated by the family.

Mrs. Steeves was incredibly kind, assertive, humorous and positive. Her love for cats shall never die, even with her gone. I am terribly sorry for what happened, and I pray for her sake in the afterlife. She shall always be remembered.
