Marion Helen (Grams) Hinton, daughter of William and Julia (Hoehn) Grams, was born on Thursday, January 3, 1924 in St. Clair, Minnesota. She attended school in St. Clair, Minnesota until the 9th grade. On September 12, 1944 she married the love of her life, Guy Joseph Hinton, together they lived in the Smiths Mill/Janesville area until 1960 and then Waldorf, Minnesota until 1966, when they made their forever home in Jackson, Minnesota. They were blessed with 11 children: 8 sons and 3 daughters. Marion was a member at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church from the time she and Guy moved to Jackson. Marion worked outside the home as a nurse’s aide in Mankato and Janesville for a short time and at Univac from 1969 – 1986, but her main focus was taking care of her family. Marion entered into eternal rest on Monday, January 11, 2021 at her residence in Jackson at the age of 97 years and 8 days.
Marion was a giving and loving woman. She was an active member of the Good Shepherd Church, where she was a Prayer chain member, saying the rosary, and attending daily mass when available, otherwise watching it on EWTN when she could not attend in person. Marion’s church community was very important to her. She was a collector of things that made her happy including shoes, dolls, and plates and she could be found garage sale “hopping” in the summer months to look for these treasures. Marion loved to socialize with her family, especially on weekends, holidays, and birthdays. She never missed a birthday, and even when her eyes started to fail her, she would use a special reading machine to keep up with sending cards. Marion gave to various charities and enjoyed reading mail that she received from the charities, keeping her informed how her gifts were helping to change and enrich lives. In her down time, she tied comforters, and crocheted beautiful afghans for her grandchildren. Marion has left behind a lifetime of memories for her family to cherish.
Marion is survived by her 11 children: Mark (Audrey) Hinton of Golden Valley, Minnesota; William (Mary) Hinton of Mahtomedi, Minnesota; Patrick (Linda) Hinton of Providence, Rhode Island; Stephen (Joan) Hinton of Willmar, Minnesota; Matthew (Denise) Hinton of St. Paul, Minnesota; Jerome (Pam) Hinton of St. Paul, Minnesota; Daniel (Ramona) Hinton of Alpha, Minnesota; Lawrence Hinton of Heron Lake, Minnesota; Julia Fisher of Bloomington, Minnesota; Marian “Mel” (Kevin) Condon of Glendale Heights, Illinois; Martha (Alan) Lee of Trimont, Minnesota, her 22 grandchildren, and 27 great-grandchildren.
Marion is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years Guy Joseph Hinton, her parents William and Julia Grams, siblings: Walter Grams, Gertrude Goodrich, William Grams, Laura Meyers, Eva Hodapp, Carl Grams, Alice Hodapp, and Robert Grams.
Blessed be the memory of Marion Helen Hinton.
