Etta Mae Tincher

Etta Mae Tincher, age 91, of Salem, formerly of Rittman and Barberton, went to be with the Lord Dec. 31, 2020, at Salem Regional Medical Center, following a brief illness. Etta was born March 25, 1929, in Hunter, Kentucky, to the late Robert and Rebecca (Moore) Salisbury, moved to Ohio when she was 15, and attended Rittman High School. She lived in the Rittman/Barberton area for 72 years until moving in with her daughter in 2016 because of health concerns. She worked as a machinist for Manchester Tool & Die most of her adult life, retiring in 2001. In her younger years, Etta was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Rittman. She later became a member of Akron Bible Church, and once she moved out to Mahoning County became a member of Church at the Center in Salem. She was a longtime Union Representative at Manchester Tool and a member of the Women’s Electrician Auxiliary Union Post 306. She loved to read, but her favorite pastime was visiting with friends and family, and would often visit until the wee hours of the night. She loved dancing and attending country music shows.
