Kintner, Marjorie

Marjorie Lenore Kintner, 90, died Sept. 10, 2019, at Gaslight Village Assisted Living in Adrian.

She was born April 5, 1929, in Ogden Township to Kenneth and Leah (Sell) Emmons. She was married to Russell W. Kintner on Feb. 20, 1954, at the Church of the Brethren in Adrian.

Russell and Marjorie were foster parents of infants direct from the hospital. After raising her children, she took up the hobby of making quilts in 1999. She made more than 50 quilts for her family for graduations and weddings. Another hobby was making wedding and anniversary cakes including her children’s wedding cakes and hundreds of others.

She loved working in her church until she was unable to do so. She worked on the Church of the Brethren district of northern Ohio on the nominating committee and the women’s cabinet, and was on the district board at the time the northwestern section merged with the northeastern section into northern Ohio. 

Marjorie worked at Jessie’s Beauty Shop in Morenci and had her own shop for a while. She worked at General Telephone, Stubnitz-Greene, Faraday and at her husband’s accounting firm for 20 years.
