Mary Beth was born on February 7, 1953, in Mandan, ND, to Edward and Elizabeth (Betty) Steinbrueck. She was the middle child of three children. Mary Beth attended Christ the King Catholic Grade School and Mandan High School. She studied to be a veterinarian technician and attended Bismarck Junior College. Mary Beth worked for the ND State Lab from 1975 to 1982 and then as a lab technician for the ND State Water Commission from 1982 to 2003. She then worked for the Department of Health from 2003 through 2017 when she retired. Mary Beth’s pride and joy was her son, Patrick Osborn, and her grandchildren, Avery and Ethan Osborn.
 
Mary Beth had numerous interests and passions. She loved her stitchery groups and her many friends. She belonged to Prairie Rose Lacemakers (bobbin lace group), PTAG (Prairie Textile Arts Guild), Thursday Night Stitchers and Monday Morning Stitchers. She was known for her intricate and detailed stitching and she also loved to share her knowledge with others by teaching them needlecraft and other stitchery topics. Her stitchery work is beautiful and her numerous creations took many hours to complete. She also loved being part of Mandan’s Art in the Park Festival for 11 years.
 
Mary Beth also loved to read, garden, and cook. She loved to commune with nature and to spend time outdoors. She was known for her knowledge of botany and entomology. Mary Beth loved to make her pear pie for others, using the fruit from her pear tree. She loved to attend the Renaissance Festival whenever possible. She enjoyed fencing and Irish Dancing. A fan of Emerald Isle, she was thrilled last year to travel to Ireland and enjoyed sharing her pictures with others. Mary Beth had a quick wit, was fun to be with, and always loved visiting with her friends, neighbors and relatives. She will be dearly missed by those who knew her.
 
Mary Beth is survived by her son, Patrick Osborn; grandchildren, Avery and Ethan; brothers, Warren Steinbrueck and Edward (Merita) Steinbrueck; nieces, Molly, Alisen, and Emily; nephews, Eric and Andrew; one great-nephew, James; and four great-nieces, Chloe, Madison, Claire and Jennah.
 
Mary Beth is preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Elizabeth Steinbrueck, and her sister-in-law, Jeannie (Rados) Steinbrueck.
