Bulah Steinberg


Bulah Steinberg, 102, passed away on Wed., March 10, 2021, at Bethel Lutheran Home in Madison, S.D.

Bulah was born Jan. 8, 1919, to Ben and Percy (Cheney) Mikel. She grew up with three brothers, Kenneth, Keith and Joyce Mikel. She attended country school through the eighth grade. She married Bill Steinberg in September of 1935. Bulah and Bill were blessed with a daughter, Marvis Jensen; two grand-daughters, Debbie Jensen and Vickie (Kipton) Knudson and one great-granddaughter, Amber Knutson. Bulah and Bill also raised Bill's youngest brother, Jack.

Bulah and Bill farmed for over 52 years near Oldham, S.D. After retiring, they moved to Lake Preston, S.D.

Bulah had a servant's heart and loved babysitting for friends or bringing her delicious cinnamon rolls and lemon meringue pie to those in need. Bulah was a member of Oldham Lutheran Church where she enjoyed being in a quilting group and serving lunch at funerals.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill Steinberg; her parents, Ben and Percy Mikel; brothers, Kenneth, Keith and Joyce Mikel.

As we celebrate Bulah's life, we respect the health of our family and friends, so no formal service will be held. A private family burial will be held at a later date in the Oldham City Cemetery, Oldham, S.D. The Johnson-Henry Funeral Home of Arlington, S.D., is in charge of arrangements.
