Steffie F. Horn

April 4, 1919 - April 7, 2018

Steffie Horn, 99, born and lived in Benwood, WV, died April 7, 2018.
Steffie (Stefania) Horn, was preceded in death by her parents, Emery and Mary Masaryk Horn, 2 brothers, Joseph and Robert, a sister, Mary Helen, a niece, Linda Horn Gantzer, and her lifelong friend, Dorothy Laipple of Bridgeport, OH.

Steffie retired from Wheeling Stamping in Warwood, WV. She was a world class traveler, having visited Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, England, Ireland, Greece, Australia, Bermuda, Bahamas, Hawaii and all the provinces of Canada. She attended several World’s Fairs which included the 1962 Seattle Space Needle dedication.
Steffie had a sharp memory and often spoke of her life experiences; opening day of the Bellaire Toll Bridge in 1926, enjoying a bratwurst dinner in a restaurant overlooking the Swiss Alps and sneaking off from the tour group with her best friend Dorothy to try some local Italian foods in Rome.
Steffie loved her two rescue cats, Miss Kitty and Casey. She enjoyed her poppy garden, sitting on her front porch and watching professional golf on TV.

The family would like to extend special recognition and thanks to Janet Huggins, who was a loving friend and caregiver of Steffie’s for many years and her Benwood neighbors for always keeping a close eye on her.
Special thanks to Good Shepherd Nursing Home and Valley Hospice for the amazing care she received over the past month.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the Marshall County Animal Shelter.
