Hope was raised near Rockyford, South Dakota. The 2nd oldest child of 10 born to David Leroy Steele and Ellen Mae Pourier Steele. She attended Holy Rosary Mission as a child. On October 16, 1937 she married Henry "Hank" Amiotte at Holy Rosary Mission near Pine Ridge, South Dakota. They started their family and lived in Pine Ridge until moving to Rapid City in 1943.

They had 4 children and helped raise many of their grandchildren. Their children are Marvin, Dolores, Lowell and Wayne. Hope and Hank moved home to Rockyford, SD when Hank retired in 1977. Hope's favorite color was yellow. Her family has fond memories when she would bake fresh bread and make sure everyone had a warm biscuit or fry bread as a special treat. Her navy bean soup was second to none as well as her chicken and dumplings. Hope enjoyed sewing and crafts. She made many patch quilts for her loved ones. She cherished her family and would do nearly anything for them and especially her grandchildren.

At the time of her death she was survived by her daughter, Dolores (Marvin) Manley, 2 sons, Lowell (Kathy) Amiotte, and Wayne (Janita) Amiotte all of Rapid City; 15 grandchildren; 22 great grandchildren; 2 brothers, David Steele, Hot Springs and Kenneth Steele, Rapid City; 4 sisters, Clara Montileaux, Kyle, Madonna Adams, Rapid City, Del Rae Coleman, Ephrata, PA and Barbara McGirt, Dallas, TX.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Henry on April 8, 1995, a son Marvin 'Tommy', a sister, Ruth Seiler, a brother Donald Steele and daughter in law Lynn Moore Amiotte.
