Alfrieda M. Kuhn, 90, of Rockford, Ohio, passed away at 2:50 a.m., on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at the Laurels of Shane Hill, surrounded by her loving family.

She was a faithful member of St. Teresa Catholic Church in Rockford. She loved walking, biking, and gardening; after her harvest, she would can her bounty for Ken and herself, and her nine children! She also loved traveling with her family and friends. She lived on the farm until after Kenny passed away, and then decided to move to town. She wasn't sure she would like it, but she did, and she enjoyed sitting on her front porch in her swing, watching all the cars go by.
