Gudrun M. Tinker, 63, Bethlehem Steel worker

December 20, 2003

Gudrun M. Tinker, who emigrated from Germany when she was 21 and worked at Bethlehem Steel Corp., died Dec. 12 of pancreatic cancer. She was 63 and died at her home in Edgewood.

Mrs. Tinker arrived in Baltimore from Ilbenstadt, Germany, in 1961, and worked for many years as a data processor at the Sparrows Point steel mill in eastern Baltimore County.

Mrs. Tinker later became an accounts-payable supervisor at a local construction company. She retired eight years ago and enjoyed exercising, yardwork and cross-stitching. She also enjoyed frequent visits to Atlantic City and Las Vegas.

Her husband, Lloyd A. Tinker, died last year.

The family will hold a private memorial service next month.

Mrs. Tinker is survived by her sister, Irene Otto of Lorrach, Germany; son Robert Eiring of Baltimore; daughter Barbara Willig of Kingsville; and three grandchildren.
