Louise Virginia Hintze, age 95, died October 19, 2012 at Kent Hospital.
Born in Cranston, she was a daughter of the late Daniel Alfred and Mary Jane (Patqurin) Cameron and the step-daughter of the late Ann (Burton) Cameron. During her early years she spent summers on the family farm in Nova Scotia and later worked with her step-mother and brother at the family’s drug store, Cameron’s Pawtuxet Pharmacy, in Cranston. Louise was the oldest living member of her beloved church, Edgewood Congregational, in Cranston. Her family shall remember “Grandma Lizzie” as someone who was always ready to go to the beach at Galilee and “one in a million” when it came to her spirit of giving; as a mother who loved her son without question and as a person who was a precious gift to all who knew her.
She is survived by one son, Carl "Dutch" Hintze and his wife Joann (Campbell) Dean of Hunt, Texas; two grandchildren, Matthew Baldwin Hintze and Elizabeth Ann Martin; four great-grandchildren, Bryce, Caid and Ryder Hintze of Carriere, Mississippi, and Chris Martin of Rockville, Maryland; and her niece MaryLou Ackley of PA. She was the sister of the late Donald A. Cameron and Viola Young. Additional family members (from previous marriages) who “Grandma Lizzie” loved as though they were her own, consist of Joann’s children, Roni Jo and husband, Skip Butler of Mansfield, Texas, Kenny Ray Dean of Grand Prairie, Texas, and Ruben Lynn Dean of North Carolina; plus additional members within Matthew’s household consisting of Garrison, McKenzie and Hunter of Carrier, Miss. Additional family members who have always been considered an integral part of the family include sponsor “daughter” from Germany, Gerda Jungbauer, now of Bradenton, Florida; life-long friend Lucy Campbell of Cranston and the entire Campbell family; and loving caregiver in recent years Melissa Gierszon of Cranston.
After cremation a graveside service and interment will be held in Riverside Cemetery, Pawtucket.
Her family requests memorial donations be sent to Edgewood Congregational Church, 1788 Broad Street, Cranston, RI 02905. Information and condolences at carpenterjenks.com.
