PAULINE RUTH (MUZZY) STEADY

PAULINE RUTH (MUZZY) STEADY - VERGENNES - Our lives have once again changed with the passing of Pauline Ruth (Muzzy) Steady, 90, surrounded by love and family, on March 30, 2015. Pauline was born on March 28, 1925, in Ferrisburgh. She graduated from Vergennes High School and attended a couple of years of business school. She married Randall E. Steady, the love of her life, and they were married just shy of 65 years upon his passing in June 2011. She was above all a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and friend. In her spare time, she worked at GMP, Basin Harbor, Kennedy Brothers, as well as on their own dairy farm. She also supported her husband when he served in W.W.II. Her Christian faith was a big part of her life. She was a lifelong member of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Vergennes where she enjoyed teaching Catechism. She is survived by her children, Irene Steady, Sharon and Roger Pryor, Rodney Steady, Cory and Michele Steady, and Robin Steady; sisters, Norma Duclos and Caroline Hill; 12 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; several brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Randall Steady; son, Randy Steady; brother, Basil Muzzy; and sisters, Eunice St. Jean and Charlotte Allen. The family would like to give special thanks to Barb Lavoie, Karen Larrow, home health and hospice, along with the aides. They all went above and beyond with our mother's care. She was a beloved woman by all that knew her. She loved each and every one of her grandchildren with her whole heart! Her face would just light-up when any one of them would walk into the room. She will be truly missed by all! Combined services for Randall and Pauline will be held at a later date. Details are being handled by Stephen C. Gregory & Son Cremation Service in South Burlington. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Addison County Home Health and Hospice, PO Box 754, Route 7, Middlebury, VT 05753.
