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.”
