Alfons Magnus Steiner was born in Canton St. Gallen, Switzerland and came to America in 1953 with his wife, Marie and children Alfons J. and Verena.
Alfons and Marie ran a successful family dairy farm in Marysville, WA while raising five children.
Our Dad will be remembered for being the hardest working dairy farmer we’ve ever known, his love for animals and nature, woodworking skills, homemade wine, his generosity, devotion to and pride in his family, and being the number one fan of Mom’s home cooking.
He is preceded in death by his wife and partner of 60 years, Marie Theresa (2011), their son Paul Joseph (1975), parents and six older brothers and sisters; Hedi, Albert, Sepp, Marie, Friede and Annie.
Alfons is survived by his son, Alfons J. (Linda); with grandchildren, Ben (Nicole); and great-granddaughter, Brielle; grandson Casey (Susie); and granddaughter, Alina; daughter Verena (Basil Grieco) with daughters Adrienne and Arielle, daughter Mary (Eldon); son Peter (Heidi); along with numerous nieces and nephews in Switzerland.
A memorial service will be held in the Lounge at the Warm Beach Health Care Center.
Our family would like to thank Warm Beach Health Care Center for their kind, compassionate care of our father.
