  • Steven R. Schiller, 61, of St. Paul, Minn., left this world peacefully (though unexpectedly) Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012. Steve was honored on his 62nd birthday, Friday, Nov. 2 at St. Francis Cabrini Catholic Church, Minneapolis, Minn. A visitation was held prior to services at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota or to the James K. Hosmer Special Collections of the Minneapolis Public Library.
    A St. Paul native, he was born on Nov. 2, 1950. He was an avid collector of books, glass, woodworks, antiques and all things beautiful; used his hands to build, repair and re-purpose. He was a loving husband, caring father and the best caretaker any pets could ask for. He respected all he interacted with, living by the phrase "but for the grace of God, there be I." His open mind, inextinguishable sense of humor, and carefree approach to living in this crazy world will be greatly missed.
    He leaves behind his beautiful wife of 37 years, Margaret "Maggi" (Johnson), formerly of Geneseo; three children, Becky (John), Jeff and Megan; two grandchildren; his father, Chuck; six siblings and 14 nieces and nephews.
