Carol L. Steinwart

Carol L. Steinwart, age 86 of Bristol, IL ran to the arms of Jesus (well, maybe walked quickly) on Friday, September 9, 2022. She was born on July 31, 1936 in East Aurora, NY, the daughter of Victor and Pauline (Wyneken) Neeb.

Carol was united in marriage on May 5, 1956 to Paul O. Steinwart, and they spent the next 59 years happily together until his passing on December 8, 2015. Mrs. Steinwart was a longtime active member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. She faithfully served in Stephen Ministry, LWML, choir, bell choir, and was always the last person to leave and turn out the lights each Sunday morning. Carol co-owned and operated the Dairy Queen in Geneva, IL, and subsequently was a trainer of future DQ owner operators. She was an avid Cub fan, loved baking, and was a frustrated Sudoku player. Carol was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt who will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Carol is survived by her children, Steve (Lisa) Steinwart of Montgomery, IL; Pam (Dennis) Ziegler of Milan, IL; Kim Pearce of Oswego, IL; and Scott (Lanie) Steinwart of Valparaiso, IN; her grandchildren, Allyson Zielger, Kyle Ziegler, Michelle Steinwart, Danielle Steinwart and Chloe Pearce; as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Victor and Pauline Neeb; her husband, Paul O. Steinwart; her son-in-law, Jim Pearce; her brother and sister-in-law, Roger and Moni Neeb; and her niece, Barbara Neeb.

A Funeral Service will be held at 10:00am on Saturday, September 17, at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, 63 Fernwood Rd, Montgomery, IL with Pastor Robert Donovan, officiating. A luncheon will follow.

Friends may visit from 4:00 until 7:00 PM on Friday, September 16, at the Nelson Funeral Home, 1617 North Bridge Street, Yorkville, IL.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in loving memory of Carol, may be directed to St. Luke’s.
