Martie Kindinger – Organist

My name is Martie Kindinger and I am the organist at the Presbyterian Church. I have been organist here for over 5 years and also play the piano on occasion and accompany the choir when needed. I have been highly involved in music for as long as I can remember and it is a joy to be able to share with others the talents that God has given me.

I have been a bookkeeper for approximately 35+ years. I am married for 50 years with one daughter. I was born, grew up and married in Wisconsin, lived in Michigan before coming to Defiance. My husband retired from the baking industry. We came to Ohio to work for the Grahams at Brown’s Bakery in 1991.
