Mrs. Steinfeld, also known as Rubela and Ruby-Doobie, was well loved by all of her family and friends because of her gentle, loving and kind heart. She always put others before herself and always enjoyed making her house into a home by entertaining others. Mrs. Steinfeld loved everyone that she met and everyone she met loved her. She had a wonderful sense of humor all the way to the end and was very popular amongst her care-givers because they never knew what she would say next.

In addition, to her passion and love for teaching she greatly enjoyed the time she spent with her family as well as travel, theater, music and attending temple services.
