Storm F. Steiger, age 64, of Westerville, died Friday November 6, 2020 in her home following a long battle with breast cancer. She was born December 22, 1955 in Columbus to the late Rutledge and Mary Lou Thompson. In 1969 she began a relationship with Jesus and walked closely with Him all the days of her life. Her favorite verse is John 11:25 “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live’”.
She graduated from Walnut Ridge High School in 1973 and married her best friend Dean Steiger that summer. They were married 47 years, weathered many storms, and made many happy memories.
She was a multifaceted wonderful loving supportive wife, a nurturing mother with a passion for encouraging and equipping her children and others in learning how to think more deeply and intelligently about their faith. As an accomplished apologist, she strived to live out Luke 10:27, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself”. She left her mark on her family and the world.
Storm was a prolific writer who penned many books and stories including Autumn Winter, Praedernoch Ness, and The Virtues: A Story of Good and Evil. She loved children, especially little girls, and created The Girls Only Club to teach them the three C’s: Cooperation, Confidence, Consideration.
Most importantly, she was adamant that anyone who is remembering her would know the hope she has in Jesus. Today those of us left behind are in mourning, but Storm is celebrating in the presence of the Lord. She knew that Jesus’ death on the cross covered her sins and granted her eternal life. Her family would love to share more with you about Storm’s faith and the hope that it gives.
She is survived by her husband, Dean Steiger; daughters Mindy (Matt) Hutchison, Tiffany (Matt) Beckler, Laura (Matt) Weisgarber; 7 grandchildren, Andrew (Samantha) Keeling, Joshua (Brittnie) Keeling, Mathew Keeling, Addison Steiger, Elizabeth Weisgarber, Donovan Weisgarber, Charlie Beckler; great-granddaughter Winry Keeling; sister Toni Bruce, brothers Mark Bruce and Rut Thompson. She was preceded in death by her brother, Benny Ray Thompson.
