Obituary - Marinda "Tin" Dahmer

Marinda “Tin” Dahmer, 76, of Nevada, MO passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at St. Luke’s East Hospital, Lee’s Summit, MO. Tin was born on July 30, 1944, in Knoxville, Tennessee, to Margaret Griffin and Leonidas Hankal. She married Maurice “Bub” Dahmer on July 26, 1968 in Jefferson City, MO and together they raised five children.

Tin grew up in Bolivar, Missouri, with her five siblings: Phoebe, Bob, Jim, Mary Jane, and Martha Lee. She held many titles in her life, including a loving mother, wife, sister, grandmother, and friend. She lit up every room she walked into and was always ready for a laugh. She worked as a waitress at 54 café for several years and made many friends along the way. She loved her entire family more than anything, but one of her most cherished accomplishments in life was being a “Grammy.” She loved supporting her grandchildren in their many activities. One of her favorite places was the Vernon County Youth Fair; she rarely missed a day.

In addition to her husband Bub, survivor include her five children, and their spouses, Rob and Dawn Dahmer, Don and Donna Dahmer, Tracy and Ronnie Fancher, Cory and Amy Dahmer, Carrie Green; and countless grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life for Tin will be held at the Elks Lodge on Friday, June 18, 2021 at 5 pm.
