STEPT: Rosalie Gail (Weintraub) Stept, 83, lost her courageous battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 26, 2020, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Born Jan. 14, 1937, in Pittsburgh to the late George and Anne (Dickman) Weintraub. She is preceded in death by her devoted husband of 58 years, Alan Philip Stept. She is survived by beloved brothers Mort (Ellen) Weintraub of Williamsville, New York, and Richard (Micki) Weintraub of Boynton Beach, Florida, and sister-in-law Edythe Eisenburg of New York, New York. Beloved mother of five children and their spouses: Susan (Michael) Isard of Alexandria, Virginia, Steven (Camille) of Oakland, California, Sheldon of Hillsborough, New Jersey, Stanton (Sharon) of Germantown, Maryland, and Sharon Stept of Newport News, Virginia; beloved grandmother of seven grandchildren, Ashley, Melissa, Leslie, Zachary, Rebecca, Shayna and Jaden; and most recently born great-granddaughter Brittany Gail. Known since her youth by her middle name “Gail,” she was blessed to have many dear friends and was very active in the local community for 60 years. She was a member of Beth Shalom Temple, a life member of Hadassah whose vision is to strengthen a connection to Israel, bringing healing and justice to the world, and active in the Conemaugh Hospital Junior Auxiliary and Johnstown Symphony Auxiliary. An avid mahjong player, she enjoyed teaching others in recent years at Laurel View Village and the Johnstown Public Library. Her passion for sharing and helping others was often combined with her delight of cooking and baking. She loved strangers and friends equally and often stayed connected by sharing gifts of her world-class mandel bread or noodle kugel prepared with love and warmth. She had the gift of gab and a strong spirit that will remain in our hearts. A graveside service was held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Grandview Cemetery with Rabbi Irvin Brandwein officiating. John Henderson Co. is in charge of arrangements. hendersonfuneralhome.com PJC
