Vinnie was born February 13, 1929 in Kenton, to Frank L. and Bertha F. (Sours) Batchlet. She married John “Jack” Fingerhuth April 23, 1969, in Upper Sandusky, and he died March 25, 2013.

Vinnie was loved by all who knew her.  She is now at peace as Heaven has gained another angel.

At her wish, Vinnie had lovingly chosen to donate her body to the University of Toledo Medical Center, so there will be no visitation or services at this time. The Traunero Funeral Home and Crematory, 214 S. Monroe Street, Tiffin, Ohio 44883, 419-447-3113, assisted the family with arrangements.
