Dorothy Maye (Long) Steele, age 88, of Honolulu, Hawaii, gently passed on the morning of September 15, 2021. She was March 7, 1933 in Sorento, Illinois.
Dorothy and her beloved husband, jack, raised two children in Hawaii – Natalie (Juenger) and Guy.
She was the eldest daughter of Florence “Tutu” Long and John E. Long, sister of Lorene Long, and proud grandmother to Ashley, Alexa, Miriam, Anna, and Lisa.
A career librarian at Punahou School, Dorothy also dedicated more than a half-century of her life to volunteer service. She helped public elementary school students learn to read; worked in thrift stores benefiting disenfranchised youth; assisted the elderly in nursing homes; and was a tireless fundraiser for Punahou carnivals and Wesley United Methodist Church.
Dorothy’s kindness was never more apparent than when she was in her varied social and public service circles. Dorothy’s eighty-eight years were devoted to her Faith, Family, and Friends. Her love of these was rivaled only by her never-fading affection for Hawaii. The signs are abundant that Dorothy is again in the arms of Jack, reunited after twelve years.
