Reminder: Hinton services begin with visitation today

Just a quick reminder that visitation begins at 5 p.m. today (Wednesday, July 31) for Maria Hinton, a revered Tribal Elder and award-winning UW-Green Bay alumna who fought to preserve the language and culture of the Oneida people. As we told you here Monday, Hinton passed away Sunday at the age of 103. Today’s visitation will be held at Ryan Funeral Home, 305 N. Tenth St., De Pere. The Oneida Hymn Singers will sing at 6:30 p.m., with a prayer service at 7 p.m. A traditional Oneida longhouse wake will take place beginning at 5 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday, Aug. 1) at the Oneida longhouse, and Hinton’s funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Friday (Aug. 2), also at the Oneida longhouse. In keeping with cultural tradition, there will be a fire lit in Hinton’s honor, and for people to offer prayers; that will take place at Hinton’s original homestead, 4204 W. Mason St., Oneida. Friends and family may come to the fire to offer condolences and donations to the family; online condolences can be expressed at To view Hinton’s obituary, and our story, video and photo gallery, click the links below:
