Teresa Marie Steenrod, 59, of Sidney, passed away at 6:01 a.m. on July 16, 2013, at Miami Valley Hospital.
Terri will be remembered for her strong faith and positive attitude that has guided her life and inspired those around her. She always had a kind heart, sharp wit, and an innocence about her that made her truly one of a kind.
Born on Jan. 19, 1954, in Cleveland, Terri is the daughter of Marilyn Van Allen, stepfather Leroy Van Allen, and father, the late James Tiernan. She is the middle sibling of two brothers, the late Jim Tiernan and John Tiernan. On June 30, 1972, she married Craig Steenrod, of Sidney.
As a devoted wife, a dutiful mother and a doting grandmother, Terri was always at the center of family activities and took great pride in raising a family that is fun-loving, independent, kind and healthy.
Terri is survived by her husband, Craig; her five children and their spouses, Stacy and Steve Rueckhaus, Andy and Andrea Steenrod, Adam and Melissa Steenrod, Julie and Joe Casiano and Sarah Steenrod; and 14 grandchildren, Lily, Blake, Levi, Izaiah, Myles, Ava, Cole, Emerson, Rayner, Finlay, Brylee Madison, Brylie Annmarie, Vincent and Grace.
A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Terri's life will be held on Saturday, July 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Adams Funeral Home, 1401 Fair Road.
A service will immediately follow, with Pastor Ron Lambert officiating.
