I worked at Memorial Hospital in the pharmacy from 1976 till 1997. Me Steider treated all his employees with kindness! I swear he knew everyone’s name and would ask about your family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

The world seems a little dimmer now. I had the privilege of having Uncle Norman in my life for 50+ years. He was a kid at heart and had an awesome sense of humor and fun. We had so many great times. I am blessed that my children, his great nieces and nephews, got to know him and also had many fun times together, from Ziggy the waterskiing squirrel to horsing around in the pool. He was greatly loved and will be so missed. Prayers to Aunt Mary, Melanie, Gretchen, Cory, Charlie, Max, Marissa and Clayton.

Dear Steider Family, I remember Norman with a smile always lighting up his face. Although our families did not get together often enough, I recall how nice he and his siblings were to their "younger" cousins. I am truly sorry for your loss, but may there be comfort in knowing how much he was loved and admired. May the happy memories of him help ease your sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Peggy Perrine

Remember him well from Memorial..... not many bosses get to know their people that work with them. He would walk the halls, know you by name ask about your family etc... May he rest in peace....

Norm was an executive at Memorial Hospital in Michigan City at the same time I was coaching the cross-country team at the high school along with assistant coach Mary Taylor. His daughter Gretchen was on the team. To raise money for uniforms, we organized a run (First Over the Bridge) to coincide with the building of the bridge near the casino. Before there was auto traffic, runners ran over the bridge. Norm was helpful in organizing the run. He will not be forgotten.

Our deepest sympathies to the Steider family. I worked at Memorial Hospital for many years and was always amazed that Norm knew every single person's name who was employed there. If you were new and he didn't know you yet, he would still always acknowledge you with a hello and warm smile, but by George, he would know your name next time! RIP Norm ~

Such a sad day. Norm was such an incredible man. He was quick to smile and laugh, and always had a funny joke or story to tell. He had a brilliant mind. I loved to have both serious and light hearted discussions with him. Norm was one of the most loved and respected long term members of the Michigan City Rotary Club, with tremendous leadership and input to better our community. Norm was one of the dearest people I have ever met. My life is better for knowing him. Sending love to Mary, Melanie and Gretchen. Bernie Scott
