Margaret Marie Zoeller

Margaret Marie Zoeller, 92, of Tiffin, went to be with the Lord, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013. Marie was a resident of Seneca House, Tiffin, and was given excellent attention from a caring staff.

Marie was born March 16, 1920, in Tiffin, to Edward and Loretta (Steyer) Strausbaugh. She married Herman S. Zoeller May 21, 1938, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Tiffin, with the Rev. May officiating. Herman preceded her in death Nov. 18, 2001.

Survivors include six children, Herman “Sonny” (Donna) Zoeller of Tiffin, Marge (Ed) Creeger of Houston, Texas, and Jerry (Diann) Zoeller, Dorothy (Rick) Osterwalder, Judy (Danny) Miller and Tim (Lori) Zoeller, all of Tiffin; 21 grandchildren; and 39 great-grandchildren.

Also preceding Marie in death were her parents; two sons, Tom “Perch” and infant son, Billy; and three brothers, Robert, Richard and James.

Marie was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and a good friend to Arlene Reinhart and Iris Abbott. She was a homemaker and had a love for the farm and working with her husband. Her family came first in her life and a playhouse was constructed just for family get-togethers. Marie created a legacy her entire family will cherish. Her family was blessed to have her as a mom, grandmother and great-grandmother; God created a perfect match. Her children and family were her world. Her whit and charm will be missed. She was our “Queen Bee.”
