Obituary for A. Joan Hinks

A. Joan Hinks, 90, of Gettysburg, met her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the early morning hours
of October 28, 2021. She was born on October 16, 1931 to Maier and Thelma Stuiber, in
Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. She graduated from Stow High School in 1949, a “Forty-niner”. She
married Donald R. Hinks and soon had 4 children. In 1965 they moved to Winona Lake, Indiana,
where she worked for the dean of students at Grace College while Donald went to Grace
Theological Seminary. In 1969 they went to Hanover, Pennsylvania, where she was a pastor’s
wife and also worked at the Brethren Home at Cross Keys, Pennsylvania.
In 1972 they opened Gettysburg Christian Bookstore and Gettysburg Electronics on
Chambersburg Street, Gettysburg. The store was open for 45 years until their retirement in 2017.
Joan was the smile behind the desk and people came in just to be cheered up by her. They knew
she would have a kind word for them. She loved jigsaw puzzles, Star Trek, making pies and
apple dumplings, and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Maier & Thelma (Clayberger) Stuiber, and sister-in-law Ann (Larry)
Marinaccio. She was survived by husband of 67 years, Donald; brother Richard (Deloris) Stuiber
and sister Judy Bailey, all of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; brother-in-law William (Audrey) Hinks, of
Akron, Ohio; children Dennis (Ida) Hinks of Cleveland, Ohio; Judy (Bill) Garling of Westerville,
Ohio; Scott (Beth) Hinks of Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Stephen (Debbie) Hinks of West
Chester, Ohio; grandchildren Ben Hinks, Daniel Garling, Joanna Hinks, Betsy (Joshua)
Blackburn, Karen Douglas, Joshua (Stephanie) Garling, Nathan (Marly) Hinks, Ami (Phil)
Ameduri, Thomas Hinks, Robert (Connie) Hinks, William (Jessica) Hinks, Meredith Hinks, Kate
Hinks, and 13 great-grandchildren.
