Born in Toledo on June 17, 1946 to Frederick and Genevieve (Simon) Guhl, she attended St. Joseph Elementary School in Maumee and graduated from the former McAuley High School in 1964. On April 22, 1967, she married Thomas Puhl and they built their family home in Springfield Township in 1971. When her two children, Kerry Anne and Thomas J. Puhl II, began school, she worked part time in various positions, allowing her to attend and participate in her children’s activities. In 1990 and 1992, she was blessed with two grandsons, John and Alexander Zappone.
Mrs. Puhl chose to work at the various Springfield schools her grandsons attended in order to enjoy their daily activities and to have lunch with them. Her family was always her first priority. She retired in 2012 from Springfield Local Schools after 27 years of service. After retirement, she reconnected with several of her high school friends and old neighbors to enjoy dinners and shows. She also enjoyed the frequent company of her sisters and sisters-in-law for afternoon lunch, all enjoying her contagious smile.
Along with her children and grandsons, Mrs. Puhl is survived by sisters, Pat Shirtz and Nancy Guhl; in-laws, Carrie Reimer and Pat (Nelson) Pfleghaar; many nieces and nephews; goddaughter, DeAnna Long; and canine companion, Daisey Mae. She was preceded in death by her husband, Tom; parents; and brother, Robert.
