Obituary for Steven Lee McCollum

It is with great sadness that the family of Steven L. McCollum announces that he died on June 4, 2018 in the town of his birth, McMinnville, Oregon.

He graduated from the University of Missouri with a BS in Education and from the University of Southern California with a MA in International Studies. He served in the US Army and began a long career as a teacher. A world traveler, he taught and lived in Boonville, Missouri, Wichita, Kansas, Tehran, Iran, London, England, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, the Republic of Singapore, and culminating his lengthy career in education at Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School, Joplin, Missouri. He was a published author; however, teaching was his passion.

He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his siblings, Jane McCollum Brady of McMinnville, Mark (Nancy) McCollum of Keizer, OR, and Martha (William) Howell of Salem, OR. Also, he is survived by nieces and nephews, along with many friends and colleagues from around the world.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School General Scholarship fund at 3401 E Newman, Joplin, MO 64801 or to a scholarship fund of your choice.
