May 12, 1933 ~ May 14, 2020 (age 87)
We regret to inform you of the passing of Marleen (Cerullo) Steers, a long time member of our San Antonio Church Family. Due to the current pandemic, services will be private. Please keep Marleen’s family and friends in your prayers.
Our San Antonio Church community sends its prayers and condolences to the Steers, Cerullo, and Stevens families on the passing of Marlene (Cerullo) Steers. She was a resident of Covenant Village at the time of her death. Marlene was a parishioner of San Antonio throughout her life; along with her parents Anthony and Rose (Stevens) Cerullo who were both descendants of the original families who settled in the Lower Lick Run area of South Fairmount. The Cerullo family homesteads were once located at 1890 Queen City and 1730 Harrison Avenues. Marlene and her mother Rose were staunch supporters of our church and were part of the organized group who held many meeting and candle light vigils in the 1980’s to keep San Antonio open. She was a member of the Ladies Sodality (later the Men’s and Women’s Society) and worked all the festivals, spaghetti dinners and other fundraising events. She was present at the 50th Anniversary, the Diamond Jubilee in 1997, and the dedication of our Memorial Brick Garden. She became widowed early in her marriage when Ronald died suddenly and worked hard to support their 6 children on her own. She eventually became the 1st female E.M.T. Fire Fighter for the City of Cheviot from 1976-1998. Preceding her in death were husband Ronald, sons Duane, Dana and Darren Steers. Marlene leaves to mourn her passing, daughters Diana Michaels, Donna (Ted) Richards, Debbie (Jim) Still, 12 Grandchildren and 21 Great Grandchildren. She also leaves many cousins and friends. A Memorial Mass will be held at a later date.
