Letha was born in Jamestown, Indiana, on November 28, 1927, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred and Opal (Sutton) Lint. Educated locally, Letha attended Quincy High School and graduated with the Class of 1945. She went on to obtain her bachelor’s degree in education from Eastern Michigan University. Letha met and married the love of her life, Francis Anthony in June of 1976. Sadly, he preceded her in death on February 11, 2017. Letha worked as a substitute teacher at Crestwood Schools in Dearborn Heights as well as being a homemaker. She had the most beautiful flower garden, and she enjoyed spending her time tending to her flowers. Reading was one of her favorite pastimes, especially reading her Bible. Letha also enjoyed feeding the hummingbirds and finches as she watched them through the window. Walking outside and wintering in Florida were some of the things she most enjoyed. Letha was a skilled organist and people would gather around to listen to the beauty that came forth. In her free time, she enjoyed putting together puzzles and completing crossword puzzles. She was a wonderful, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend and she will be greatly missed.
Left to cherish Letha's memory are her son, Rick and wife, Nancy Weage; step-daughters: Penny and husband, Ivan Young, Ann Miller and Denise Berry; brother, Don and wife, Dorothy Lint; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
