Christina Rose Steele
May 22, 2013
”We were going to have a baby, but we had an angel instead”, is what we explained to Christina’s siblings, but no words can explain the loss of our baby girl.
It is with immense grief and sorrow that we announce the stillbirth of Christina Rose Steele, the day before she was expected to arrive safe and snuggled in our arms. She will be forever loved and missed by her heartbroken Mommy and Daddy, Meghan and Mike Steele and by a loving sister and two adoring brothers who couldn’t wait to hug baby- Brandyn, Faith and Bradley. Also, Grammie and Grampa, Mike and Jean Donnelly of Summerland, and Gramma Joy Dickson of Penticton. Many Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends were awaiting Christina’s arrival. She was sadly predeceased by Nana, Amy MacKay who always took pleasure feeling baby’s kicks. It was such an exciting nine months of getting to know and love baby, with tummy hugs and songs, kicks and movements, ultrasounds to see and heartbeats to listen to…she will always be remembered. The family is thankful for the outpouring of love and support. A memorial service for Christina will be held at the Rosedale Funeral Chapel with Pastor Rick Gay officiating on Sunday, June 9, 2013 at 1pm.
“The distance between joy and sorrow can be measured by a heartbeat.”
