Dewey Adelle Steele, 76, formerly of Cincinnati, Ohio, died on September 6, 2018, at Tidewell Hospice House in Port Charlotte, Fl. after a brief cancer struggle. At her side was Geneva Otten, her devoted wife and life partner of 49 years. She will be remembered as a very caring, sensitive and fun loving person with a quick wit. She had a beautiful smile and enjoyed making others laugh with her ever-ready stories and jokes. Dewey is preceded in death by mother, Harriett M. Hutcherson, and father, Dewey E. Steele. She is survived by sisters, Donna Hale (Steve) and Sally Schaefer (Ray); niece, Tanna Woodward (John); nephews, Jason and Casey Hale and many loving friends. A celebration of her life will be held in Cincinnati at a later date.

Donna, I was so sorry to read about your sister's passing. I know how close you were to each other. It's never easy, I know. In the last 18 months, I have lost a nephew and a niece to cancer. Both were only 50 years old. Jim's sister passed away a year ago also. I think of you often and hope you are well. Again, my deepest sympathies. ~ Sandy Timberlake
One of the best friends we ever had. So much fun and such a kind, loving person. We will never forget Dewey, and Geneva we can’t imagine your pain. Pat & Jean
Geneva so sorry for your loss Dewey was such a good hearted and loving person. I will really miss her laugh. Sending you HUGE hugs and I'm here if you need to talk anytime.
My dear friend, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. No words are ever adequate at a time like this. No words can truly comfort. You have been and will always be in my thoughts.
Geneva, you may not remember me but I met you before with Dewey. I have such fond memories of Dewey. We met soon after I moved to Cincinnati through our professional medical record association. What a great sense of humor she had. I can still hear her laugh! I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I will watch for her celebration of life and try to attend it.
Our deepest condolences go out to you Geneva and the family. She was a delight to be around and chat with . Truly a loving person. We will miss her but know you will someday find comfort in knowing she is in a better place and not suffering anymore. Our best to you and yours always. Our love, Randy Ann and Peter Bechtel
My deepest sympathy goes out to you, Geneva and Puddin' too. Love, Dana (Toni's friend)
Although we did not know Dewey for very long, we did know she had a wonderful sense of humor and a truly beautiful soul.
With our deepest sympathy,
Frank & Paula
Oh we had such fun! We all have lost one of the most special people I've ever known. Geneva, I know you will go on in memory and tribute to wonderful Dewey. Love you both. Bobbi Germain
