DARYL (ROSIE) STEEN (published on July 05, 2008)

DARYL (ROSIE) STEEN Following a lengthy illness, Daryl passed away on July 2, 2008. He leaves to mourn his brother Warren; niece Laura, her husband Ralph Schofield, and their children Brooklyne and Edison; cousins Bruce and Pat; Ken, Sonja, and their daughter Selena; Dawna; and family across Manitoba. He will also be missed by his adopted family, the Denny's, especially Mark and Steven, who welcomed him into their family. Daryl was predeceased by his parents Manley and Harriette, and his brother Robert. Rosie's love of his life was sports. A childhood hip injury kept him from playing but didn't stop him from getting involved. From coaching youth teams at age 12 out of Earl Grey, Daryl could always be found lending a hand. His attention turned to the treatment of injuries. He was a member of the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association and was proud to be selected to the staff of athletic therapists during the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Through the years, he was trainer for numerous teams including the Winnipeg Hawkeyes for 12 years and the Winnipeg Colonels for which he was inducted into the Softball Manitoba Hall of Fame in 2007. He was proudest of his time served with the St. Boniface/Winnipeg Saints since 1969, first as a trainer and later as an office consultant . Daryl, we'll all miss your words of advice. Treating injuries wasn't enough. He was also the President of the Manitoba Junior Baseball League for a number of years and was inducted into the Baseball Manitoba Honour Society in 1995. Thanks to the staff at Victoria General Hospital, especially Dr. Pacin and all the nurses and aides on the 4th floor. Your compassion, friendship, and sense of humour made a difficult six months bearable. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 5, 2008, 11:00 a.m. at Southside Bible Church, 1269 St. Anne's Rd. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Victoria General Hospital Foundation. THOMSON FUNERAL HOME 669 BROADWAY, WINNIPEG, MB R3C OX4 783-7211 Send expressions of sympathy at
