Read Zoralee Steinberg's obituary


Zoralee Steinberg

93, passed away on January 30, 2014. She was a wife to Zellman Steinberg for 70 years, and a mom to her two children, Michael Steinberg and Judith Lynn Mitz and grandmother to grandchildren, Sara and Laurie. She graduated with honors from Wichita State University where she majored in social work and a minor in political science. In 1941 she received a full graduate scholarship in the Department of Public Administration at the University of Colorado. Zoralee always had a tremendous interest in politics, social issues and duplicate bridge. She was quoted many times saying "unchanging ideas have no place in our changing times." With her enthusiasm she became campaign manager for a Colorado Governor and a campaign manager for a Denver District Attorney. Also, her business skills guided her as secretary-treasurer of Federal Planning Mill, an architectural manufacturing plant headed by her husband Zell. And, she was a candidate for the 17th District's seat in the Colorado House of Representatives and Captain at large for the Democratic Party in Denver. Zoralee was asked by Denver District Attorney's office to head up the juvenile diversion program. Her innovative ideas and results attracted national attention, including being interviewed on the Today Show in New York. In 1985, Zoralee and Zell moved to Tucson and enjoyed the people, local issues and of course the sunshine! A graveside service will be held Tuesday, February 4, 2014, 2:00 p.m. at Evergreen Cemetery with Rabbi Stephanie Aaron officiating. Arrangements by EVERGREEN MORTUARY & CEMETERY,
