A Sacred Moment


Paulette Steele Cziske

August 14, 1943 - June 20, 2014

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend to Us All.

Paulette was born in Seattle, August 14, 1943 to Anchoria and Hamlet Steele. She was the youngest of three sisters. December 31, 1968 she married Dennis Cziske. Together they raised two sons, Nathan and Matthew. Through her love of Piano she brought the art of music into their lives. She showed her family how to be out going and community oriented by involving them in the Boy Scouts and other activities. She shared her love of the earth with them through her love of gardening, the love of adventure through planned and spontaneous trips throughout the country and the magic of friendships born from just a smile and the simple word "Hello". She taught us how to live life to its fullest.

Paulette was a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, growing up and living in north Seattle, Shoreline and Hansville.

Her husband, Dennis, sons Nathan and Matthew, daughters, Janel and Amy, sister Barbara, five grandchildren, many family members and friends now share only loving memories of her, in the wake of her passing, June 20, 2014. She is loved.


A celebration of Paulette's life will be announced.


In her honor and in lieu of flowers remembrances may be made to KCTS Channel 9 or the Boy Scouts of America, Chief Seattle Council.
