She was born Sept. 7, 1955 in Kaukauna to the late Gerald and Joyce (Lamine) Rott. Tinker graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1973.

In her early working days, she worked at the Ideal Café in Kaukauna where she met the love of her life, Doug Enders. On Sept. 18, 1981 she married Doug at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Kaukauna.

Tinker enjoyed an occasional trip to the casino and spending quality time with family and friends. She will always be remembered for her quick laugh and her kind heart.

Survivors include her husband Doug of Malone; her brother and sisters, Bruce (Rosanne) Rott of Neenah; Diane Rott of Pensacola, Florida; and Paula (Bruce) Hohol of Wrightstown; her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, Wayne Enders of Natal, Brazil; Dawn Schumann and her husband Abner of Rifle, Colorado; and Denise Dreifuerst of Madison; and her close cousins, Jyl (Jim) Randerson of Kaukauna, Valerie (Richard) Davis of Kaukauna and Gayle (Jake) Pompa of Kaukauna. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Gerald and Joyce Rott; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Norbert and Margaret “Red” Enders; and her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, Michael Enders, Gail Sexton and Sharon Czerniak.

A private family graveside service will be held at the St. Cloud Catholic Cemetery in St. Cloud.

“I told you many times Tinker, I love you, and now I must say good-bye. Now is the final time, which is the hardest thing I have had to say in my life. I know one day, we will be together again. Tinker, I love you, good-bye.”
