Agnes Peiffer Obituary

Agnes F. Peiffer, 89, of Tiffin, died at 11:35 p.m. Tuesday, January 9, 2024, at Mercy Health Tiffin Hospital.

Agnes was born March 21, 1934, in Tiffin, to Paul J. and Eleanor (Elchert) Steinhauser. She married Gerald A. Peiffer June 25, 1955, at St. Joseph Catholic Church and he died March 16, 1993.

Survivors include two sons, Stephen (Norma) Peiffer of Galena, Ohio, Timothy (Marla) Peiffer of Tiffin; three daughters, Linda Finley of Fort Worth, Texas, Lora (John) Krause of Clyde, Lisa (Joel) Kohler of Mason, Ohio; 12 grandchildren, Erica (Chris) Horman, Sheena (Chance) Barthold, Tiffany (Ryan) Canaday, Mike (Roseann) Peiffer, Tiara Krause, Garrett (Pam) Krause, Zachary Peiffer, Brittany (Derek) Egbert, Bethany Peiffer, Jared Kohler and Claire Kohler; and Jessica (Shawn) Miller, 11 great-grandchildren, Emily, Wesley and Trevor Horman, Deegan Barthold, Eloise Canaday, Emmajean and Annmarie Peiffer, Blair and Meredith Krause, and Aubrie and Rylie Egbert; two brothers, Anthony (Mary) Steinhauser of Tiffin, Cyril (Mary) Steinhauser of LaSalle, Michigan; and a sister, Donna (Garry) Kin of Tiffin.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, two brothers, Carl Steinhauser, Joseph Steinhauser; and four sisters, Jean Steinhauser, Ruth Steinhauser, Irene Whealan, and Marie Hammer and a son-in-law, Tal Finley.

Agnes worked at Golden Acres Turkey Farm, and later retired in 2002 from Oberlin Processing. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. Agnes had a passion for staying in close touch with her family and friends. Her relationships with all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were priceless to her. She was always there to lend an ear and give sound advice if asked. She was a mother figure to not only her children but to many other family members as well. Her wisdom and sound advice will be missed by all.
Agnes had a keen sense of humor and always made people smile and laugh. You knew she was in the room.
