Eleanor Glater Steier
Eleanor G. Steier died on May 30, 2010 following a long and courageous fight with cancer. She was born April 29 1923. Eleanor Steier is survived by her husband of nearly 70 years, Richard Steier. She is also survived by her brother, I.W. Glater and his wife Phyllis of Exeter, New Hampshire, formerly of West Hartford. Eleanor is survived by her four children and their spouses, Mark and Holly Steier, Rod and Elena Steier, Cindy Steier and her husband Glen Briden, and Dan and Lisa Steier; 11 grandchildren, Rachel White, Lydia Steier, Shana Uthgenannt, Rebecca Steier, Ted Steier, Jesse Delaney, Emily Petronis, Andrew Steier, Carly Steier, Julia Steier and Michael Steier. She is also survived by 5 great-grandchildren, Alanna, Liza and Charlie Uthgenannt and Joshua and Abigail White. Eleanor Steier loved music and taught piano for many years. She attended Yale University, Ithaca College and received her BA and MA from the Hartt School of Music after her children were grown. Eleanor admired perfection in all things which was why she loved her "women," the UCONN Women's Basketball team, but most of all she loved her husband, Richard, and the family they created together. Summer outings to Tanglewood were a staple of growing up Steier, as were a myriad of family activities. It was rare for Eleanor to miss a child or grandchild's recital or concert. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Charitable donations can be made in Eleanor Steier's memory to the UConn Women's Basketball Program.
