Longtime community activist Margaret Ann Steele lost her long battle with a blood disorder this week. She was 67.

In 2005, the YWCA of Tucson honored Mrs. Steele with its Lifetime Achievement Award. At that time we profiled her. This is a portion of that story.

A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2006 at 10:00 a.m. at the Desert Skies United Methodist Church, 3255 N. Houghton Rd.

The family has asked that in lieu of flowers or food, memorials may be sent to either of the following organizations:

Community Food Bank

St Luke's Home, Inc.
