Theresa J. Lintner


Theresa Jacqueline (Couchie) Lintner, 85, went to be with Jesus on July 4, 2016.

She was born Aug. 13, 1930, to John Couchie (Kodje) and Edna Laronde in Duchesnay Creek, North Bay, Ontario, Canada.

She was sister to three brothers, Tom, Fred and Jack; and six sisters, Kay, Leda, Evelyn, Delima, Barbara and Ivy.

She was preceded in death was a brother, Lawrence, who drowned in Lake Temagami at age 16.

“Went to school in North Bay at St. Mary’s Catholic. Walked 3 miles to school, rain or shine. One morning it was 30 below and very cold-went to school. Helped with the work with Mother and Dad. We worked the garden and made hay in the summer and in the winter we split firewood and carried water. Went to school to the 8th grade then went to work with sister Leda at a lumber camp cooking for the men. Later worked at the Girls College in the winter and in the summer at Lunge Lodge as a waitress. That’s where I met Don Lintner in 1950. He was there fishing with friends and he caught a big fish “ME.”

“Don bought a farm in 1950 in Circleville where thousands of turkeys were raised, then in 1957 bought the dairy farm on Route 22. A herd of over a hundred was milked and Don was also a dealer in cattle and farmed with draft horses. In 1981 the dairy herd was sold. Sweet corn, produce and pumpkins were raised for sale and I sold the produce.”

Don and Theresa were married on Nov. 3, 1950, and have seven daughters who survive: Sheila (Jeff) Writsel, Christy (Bob) Diltz, Aunda (Scot) Waters, Brenna (HL) Gibson, Lisa (Eric) Berlin, Donna (John) Haller and Tonya “Toni” (Alan) Sutton. She also had 20 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Donald R. Lintner; and great-granddaughter, Audrey Elizabeth Walsh.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, July 8, 2016, at the Wellman Funeral Home with Chaplain Jim Ferrell officiating. Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
