Marge was born in Flint on April 20, 1934, the daughter of the late Darrell and Betty (Tressic) Obertein. Marge graduated from Fairgrove High School. On September 12, 1953, Marge married the love of her life, Edward Steffek. Through their many years together they shared four children, many polka dances, and countless memories. Marge opened a cake decorating business that she owned and operated for several years and later, sold real estate for 20 years. She was a dedicated parishioner of St. Norbert Church and continued on with St. Jude Thaddeus Parish. Marge loved tending her garden and was known for her creativity – especially in painting, quilting, and stained glass. She enjoyed traveling, taking trips to Hawaii, all along the east coast, cruises to the Caribbean and Alaska, and deer hunting in Wyoming. Marge was an excellent cook and baker; no one ever went hungry at her house, always cooking enough for a small army. Time spent at the cottage in Lewiston with her husband was always treasured. Above all, Marge’s family was the light of her life, her strong and selfless ways will live on for generations to come. Marge leaves to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 66 years, Edward; children, Mark (Sue) Steffek of Reese, Michael (Cheryl) Steffek of Tennessee, Timothy Steffek of Texas, and Julie Steffek (Jim Babinski) of Bay City; grandchildren, Jennifer (Kevin) Storm, Staci Steffek (Jason Andrews), Brandon (Nikki) Steffek, Kelly (Paul) Walz, Brent Steffek, Matthew (Carolyn) Steffek, Ashley (Noah) Cruz, Brandi (Josh) Robinson, and Lacey Steffek; great-grandchildren, Hope, Brayden, Zachary, Abbigail, Annabelle, Tyler, Logan, Ryan, Ellie, Alice, Sofia, and Chloe; great-great-grandson, Maverick; siblings, James (Janice) Obertein, Donna (Howard) Ellison, and Barbara (Eugene) Daenzer, along with several nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to her parents, Marge was welcomed home to heaven by her in-laws, Stephen and Alice Steffek; daughter-in-law, Lisa Steffek, and her sister-in-law, Virginia (Raymond) Hensel.

  2. I’ve known Marge since I was 12 years old and she taught me cake decorating. I use these skills to bake birthday cakes for my two grandsons, 2 and 4 years old. She also baked our wedding cake 37 years ago. Prayers of peace and comfort to the family. May they find joy remembering Marge during this sad time.

  3. Special lady / remember her well.
    Prayers for Mark, Mike, Tim, Julie and all their families – and especially for Ed
