Edith M. (Newhall) Steinfeld

Edith M. (Newhall) Steinfeld, 96, longtime of Highland Street, South Hamilton, died Wednesday December 30, 2009 in the Blueberry Hill Healthcare Center, Beverly following her brief illness. She was the wife of the late Charles R. Steinfeld who died in 1948.

Born in Hamilton April 12, 1913, daughter of the late Walter E. and Marion (Day) Newhall, she was a graduate of Hamilton public schools.

After being struck by an automobile at the age of nine while sledding, she spent much of the remainder of her childhood in and out of hospitals until losing her leg to amputation at the age of seventeen.

Much of her life was spent caring for others, members of her extended family as well as several foster children. Most important to her were her family and friends and she kept up a very active correspondence with many. She enjoyed entertaining at home and cooking and baking to share with her family and friends.

She is survived by two nephews, Robert Newhall of Ipswich and  David Newhall of Beverly and their families as well as many cousins including Ruth L. Coonrod, John Day and Linda Coonrod all of Hamilton. She was the sister of the late Francis A. Newhall formerly of Beverly and Alice M. (Newhall) Larrabee formerly of Louisiana.

Her funeral service will be held Thursday, January 7, 2010, 2 pm graveside in the Hamilton Cemetery. Family and friends are respectfully welcomed. Arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.
