Obituary

Myrtle Anne Steinmetz, age 75 of Algonac, passed away on October 28, 2021.

Mert was born on August 9, 1946 to Leroy and Margaret Beemer in Warren, Michigan. She was known by all for her feisty personality, sense of humor and always being an incredibly hard worker. Mert was determined in her life, becoming the first woman quality control manager at MacDonald Plastics in the 1980s. She later left the world of robotics to join the carnival, where she loved to travel around the country running the game and ticket booths, and later becoming the office manager. After ten years with the carnival, Mert went back to school once again to become a nurse. She practiced as a nurse until her retirement in 2013. In her free time, she loved to watch her old time game and tv shows, shoot pool with her friends, spend time with her family and she loved to cook. Mert loved to travel to Florida, where she could soak up the sun on the beaches. She was a wonderful mom to her two children, Marnie and Joseph, and was so overjoyed to become a grandmother and great-grandmother later in her life. Mert’s one of a kind spirit, and loving heart will be forever remembered by all who loved her.

Beloved mother of Marnie (Richard) VanDam, and Joseph (Ginny) Steinmetz; cherished grandmother of Morgan (Edward) Przybylo, and Jenna (fincee Shannon) VanDam; loving Gigi of Edward Przybylo III; and dear sister of Dennis (Donna) Beemer. She was also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, family, and friends.

She was preceded in passing by her loving parents Leroy and Margaret Beemer, and sister Beverly (Mike) Fitzgerald.
