Serena Steinman

Serena Steinman was feisty, strong-willed and tenacious, but loving and caring. She was determined that her kids were to have a better life than she had. Born in a small Kentucky coal mining town, Serena made sure all of her children were graduated from high school and had the opportunity to go to college. She personified “the mama-hen” who looked after her kids – she really fought for them.

Serena lived on her own terms, and passed away on her terms Wednesday evening July 8, 2015 in Colonial Manor Care Center in Loudonville after a short illness. She was 76.

Born February 8, 1939 in Hardshell, Kentucky to AB and Rachell (Harvey) Miller, she came to Ohio at age 16.

A homemaker, Serena sold Avon products, as an avenue to visit friends frequently, and adored her cats.

She is survived by her children Juanita (Duke) Darrigo of Grasonville, MD, Ted (Sherrie) Steinman of Big Prairie, Chuck Steinman of Ontario, Bob (Bini) Steinman of Lexington, Lou (Deb) Steinman of Mansfield and Ken (Diane) Steinman of Butler; 12 grandchildren; nine great grandchildren; a sister Mabel Barnett of Butler and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband Hunter A. Steinman; brothers Elhannon Miller, Mitchell Miller, AC Miller; and sisters Louvernia Miller and Elza Miller,
