Martha "Steele" Leverett, 93, of Vestavia Hills, AL passed away surrounded by her beloved family on Saturday, September 23rd, 2023.
Born on September 1, 1930 in Buhl, Alabama to William and Maude Reynolds, Steele showed a tenacious streak and a passion for taking care of others from the time she was young. This passion to provide care led her to Druid City Hospital where she trained to become a Nurse. It was during this time that she met the love of her life, Roy Leverett. Steele and Roy built a beautiful life together, with family always at the epicenter of their lives. They created a home that wasn't simply a place where they raised their three beautiful children, it also served as a second home to so many and a place where loved ones could gather and spend cherished quality time together. Alabama sports, especially football, was Steele's second greatest passion in life and one that she shared mutually with Roy. This passion for all things Alabama was a huge part of who Steele was, essentially woven into the fabric of her life. A devoted nurse, Steele dedicated decades of her life caring for patients in Brookwood Hospital's OR where she prided herself on the top tier service she provided to all of those under her care.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Jasper Leverett, daughter, Mary Ann Hutto, parents William Reynolds & Maude Lee, and all of her beloved siblings; Dorothy Henderson, Frances Barnes, W.O. Reynolds Jr & Carol Lassiter.
She is survived by her son, Roy Michael Leverett (Martina); daughter, Dorothy Leverett; sister-in-law, Mary Joyce Price (Eddie); five grandchildren, Chris Leverett (Kim), David Hutto (Aleeah), Robert Wash (Elizabeth), Jessica Milster (Brian), and Alison Carpenter (Lee); eight great grandchildren, Quinton, Landon, Ava, Wyatt, Owen, Ansley, Genevieve & Thomas; several nieces and nephews.
There will be a memorial service to honor Steele's life on Monday, October 02, 2023 at 1:00 PM at Currie-Jefferson Funeral Home Chapel followed by private family burial. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to John Croyle's Big Oak Ranch.
