Obituary for Maria Pfuhl

Parma, Ohio | Age 88

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister


Maria Pfuhl (Kuhn), age 88 of Parma passed away on January 26th, 2021. She was born on February 2nd, 1932 in Esthal (Pfalz-Germany). Despite not knowing the language and having only $100 in her pocket, she came to Cleveland with her husband and two sons in 1957 and built a wonderful life. Maria was a cook working at Keifers restaurant, and later at Pleasant Valley nursing home. She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Parma. Maria was a proud German and a friend to anyone who started the conversation "auf Deutsch." The family benefited daily from her cooking skills (which always featured her favorite, potatoes), but her true passions were flowers and time in the garden. Maria loved her family, talking to her friends, knitting, sitting on the porch, the German radio program, the Cavaliers and a tidy house. Maria is survived by her brother Helmut Kuhn (Crista); her son, Harald (Kathy), daughter Angelika "Angie" Cuculic (Ronald); grandchildren Marie Voss (Tom), Christopher (Marie), Eric, Matthew (Danielle), Danielle, and Nathan; great grandchildren Alexis and Mercedes; Nieces Theresia Sonntag and family; Manuela Barth and family "Germany"; Nephews Hans Reinhard & family "Germany"; Marco Kuhn and family "Germany"; as well as numerous friends. Maria was preceded in death by her parents Jakob and Notburga, husband Anton, son Ruediger "Rick", brother Joseph, sister Amelia, and walking companion Cocoa. Calling hours are 4-7pm Monday, Feb 1st, at Bush Funeral Home Parma. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place 11:30am Tuesday, February 2nd at Holy Family Church.
