DELPHOS — Terri Ann Grubenhoff, 59, died Monday, March 29, 2021 at her residence.
She was born March 13, 1962, at Mercy Health St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima to Gerald and Leah (Weigle) Kleman. Her mother survives in Mesa, Ariz., and her father preceded her in death. On June 1, 1985, she married Michael John Grubenhoff, who survives in Delphos.
Survivors also include her sons, Michael (Erin) Grubenhoff, of Bayport, Fla., and Joseph (Kristina) Grubenhoff, of Elida; her daughter, Elizabeth (Ben) Wiley, of Beavercreek; and Patrick Kundert, of Tampa, Fla., whom Terri thought of as a son; grandchildren, Leo, Vander, Grace, Caroline, and Henry; siblings, Lynn (Steve) Rabe, of Tucson, Ariz., Pam Ellis, of Lima, Frank Kleman, of Mesa, Ariz., Kathy (John) Simindinger, of Lima, Karen Kline, of Ohio City, Ken (Tammy) Kleman, of Mesa, Ariz.; two sisters-in-law: Diana Grubenhoff of Ft. Myers, FL, Elaine (Joe) Kulbako of Sarasota, FL; and many nieces and nephews; and her beloved dog, Peanut.
Terri was also preceded in death by three brothers-in-law, Terry Ellis, Keith Kline and Daniel (Nancy) Grubenhoff.
Terri was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, where she and Mike were married. She was a graduate of Delphos St. John’s High School, class of 1980.
Terri was an executive assistant, and she could have given a master class in the profession. She previously worked for Crown Equipment and most recently for Husky Energy Lima Refinery. She loved her co-workers, especially her most recent bosses, Claudio Ingaramo and Jerry Miller. She spoke often about what a blessing her Husky work family had become in her life.
Terri loved to laugh, gather her family and friends, and speak her truth. Visiting the beach, gardening, and working on her pottery filled her soul and renewed her energy. Her children and grandchildren were lights in her life, and she was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt.
She could be counted on to speak plainly. She loved fiercely, and if she loved you, she was honest with you, because she wanted you to be your best self.
A Funeral Mass will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 10 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Delphos. A rosary will be prayed one half hour to the funeral mass. Everyone is welcome to join in praying the rosary in assisting the soul of Terri in her journey to attaining eternal life and peace.
The family will receive friends from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 9, at Weber Funeral Home, Delphos, where a parish wake service will begin at 7:45 p.m. Visitation will also be held from 10:00 a.m. until mass time Saturday morning, April 10, 2021 in the church. It was Terri’s wishes to be cremated. Burial will be at a later date in St. Johns Resurrection Cemetery.
