Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend, Leontina "Tina" Christina Knoll, 90, of Kingston, Idaho passed away April 30, 2021 at the Mountain Valley of Cascadia nursing home in Kellogg, Idaho.  She was born July 4, 1930 on a small farm near Ryder, North Dakota.  Tina was the last of eleven children born to John and Christina (Mettler) Schrempf.

On June 12, 1949 Tina was united in marriage to Johnnie Knoll in Beulah, North Dakota. They later moved from Gackle, North Dakota to Grand Junction, Colorado to Kellogg, Idaho as Johnnie got a job with the Bunker Hill Company; and finally moved to Kingston, Idaho.

Tina was a "Jill" of all trades.  Over the years she helped to support her family by delivering newspapers on a motor route five days a week; cleaned for various local Silver Valley businesses; and finally retiring from the Kellogg School District as a cook for the Sunnyside School.

Tina was a life-long (50+) year member of the American Lutheran Church of Kellogg.  She served on the Church Council, Altar Guild and also started and ran the church Gift Shop. She was an active member of the Ladies Circle group and the Tuesday Quilting group.

Quilting, sewing, and cooking were her among her favorite things to do.  She was an avid reader and bird watcher.  She liked her flowers.  An avid fan of the Seattle Mariners and the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
