Funeral services for Mr. Maurice Toler and Dr. Vernise Steadman

In loving remembrance of our beloved friends and neighbors, Mr. Maurice Toler who passed away on November 3, 2015 and his wife of 32 years 
Dr. Vernise Steadman passed on November 5, 2015.  

They were longtime neighbors of the Bloomingdale community.  You could pass by their home on any day and hear Maurice playing music from his jazz collection.   Vernise will be missed dearly by many of her students and colleagues at the University of the District of Columbia.  She often said “I will never retire because my students need me.”

The funeral service will be held on Friday November 13, 2015 at Israel Baptist Church,  1251 Saratoga Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20018.

The family will receive friends from 11:00 AM – 12:00 Noon, followed by the formal services at 12:00 Noon.   Private burial.

Condolences should be sent to the family at 
2206 Flagler Pl. NW Washington, DC 20001
                             
The family would like to thank all for their prayers and condolences.


Maurice Toler
