REBECCA ANN & JULIE ANN STEFFEK
HALLETTSVILLE - Our two angels, Rebecca Ann Steffek , age 9, and her little sister Julie Ann Steffek, age 6, both of Hallettsville, together went to their heavenly reward on Thursday, March 21, 2013. The girls had very different personalities, but they were inseparable, even in the end. Rebecca was born September 22, 2003, and Julie was born June 23, 2006, to Raymond and Michele Mills Steffek, Jr. of Hallettsville
The joy, laughter, and energy that these two angels brought to our lives will always be remembered by those who look forward to seeing them once again in heaven. These survivors include their parents Ray and Michele Steffek, brothers Andrew and William Watson of Hallettsville, Michael Torres of Yorktown, and sister Heather Torres of Arizona, grandparents Raymond & Virginia Steffek of Hallettsville, and Peggy Grove of Michigan, four nephews and one niece, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and great-aunts and uncles. Rebecca and Julie also will be missed by many classmates, staff, and friends at Sacred Heart Catholic School, and by many friends from the community. Preceding them in death is their grandfather Douglas Mills of Michigan.
The funeral mass to celebrate their lives will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Monday, March 25, 2013, at 2 p.m., with the burial to follow at the S.H. Catholic Cemetery.
The family requests that memorials be made to the Sacred Heart Advanced Learning Center Building Fund or charity of the donor's choice.
The support and prayers from the entire community are deeply appreciated by the family, as is the support shown to Sacred Heart Catholic School by the surrounding community schools. This great outpouring of love in this time of such tremendous loss is a beautiful tribute to the number of lives touched by these two sweet girls, even in their short lives. As Becca wrote on one of her drawings, "Love one another as God loved you." We feel very loved by all the support. We are blessed with many wonderful memories. It seems God takes the best. He is being very entertained by His two new little heavenly angels. We love you, Rebecca and Julie; we always will.
