KUNTZ, Marjorie Jean (Caporal), a lifelong Daytonian, passed away peacefully in her home on May 20, 2021. Marge was born on November 23, 1927 in Endicott, New York to George Sr. and Mary Caporal. She moved with her parents and siblings to Dayton as an infant. She was preceded in death by her brother George and sister Dorothy Recker (Bob). Marjorie is survived by her loving spouse of 72 years, Peter H. Kuntz; her brother Robert Caporal (Marge); her six children—Paula (Robert) Killian; Jane Kuntz (Richard Powers); Molly Fraker (Harrison); Peter H. Kuntz, Jr. (Lori); Ellen Quinttus (Richard); Marjorie (Midge) Wegener (Mark); twelve grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Marge and Pete met in high school, where she attended Julienne and he Chaminade. They both completed their undergraduate degrees at University of Dayton and were then married in 1950. After living in Dayton View for five years, they ultimately built their family home on Westbury Road in Kettering. They lived there until 2015, when they moved to One Lincoln Park. Marge’s greatest joy was raising her six children and seeing them grow and prosper. She was an avid reader, and also loved her flower garden and abundant red raspberry bushes. She got enormous pleasure volunteering for many years at the Kettering Hospital Gift Shop, where she was recognized for over 5,000 hours of service. She also was a life member of the Christ Child Society, a member of Hamlet Theater Group and past member of Moraine Country Club.

Your mother was such an inspiration to me and all that had the good fortune to know her. I remember seeing her often in the halls and corridors of Kettering hospital where she was a volunteer. She was always in the center of the group and they would always be laughing, chatting and moving to another area of the hospital to spread their warmth, helpfulness and good cheer. She had such a warm smile and caring, giving heart. What an asset she was to any group she was a member of. To have such a wonderful, loving, caring family is no accident...she put her all into it and it showed:) What a blessing to have her for a mother, friend or wife. Seeing her values, love and smile all live on through her kids and grandkids gives one such hope. Sending prayers, love and warm hugs to you and your family during this trying time. love, Karen and Felix McGinnis

Dear Uncle Pete and family
Chick and I were so sorry to hear of Aunt Marge’s passing. She was the most lovely and gracious lady I knew growing up! Many memories of UD basketball games when Marge and I would try to quiet you and Chick from yelling at the refs. Never worked!
Your wonderful family is in our thoughts and prayers

There are too many wonderful memories to share.
However, I plan to be there on June 10 to "gather with family and friends" at which time I will do my best to represent the small Huston wing of the Kuntz family and the former President of the Kuntz In-Law Organisation, my father. I look forward to it being yet another great Kuntz re-union.
My sincerest condolences to Uncle Pete and the whole family.
