Carm and Ken started Maine Nanticoke Valley Little League in their yard in the early 50’s and were actively involved as President of the board or sponsors of a team for several decades. She is Predeceased by her parents, Anthony and Rosie Delello, eight brothers and sisters, first husband Ken Dingman Sr and second husband Clarence Chauncey.
She is Survived by her son, Ken “Butch” Dingman Jr (Linda), Stepsons Doug (Tammy) Chauncey and Jerry Chauncey. Grandchildren Kandee Wenrich, Staci (Jim) Traffas, Ginger Bridges, Allysa and Ryan Chauncey. Great grandchildren Landyn and Braedyn Traffas, Dallas Wenrich, Schaye and Gavin Bridges.
Many thanks to her extended family at Ideal Senior Living Center for the care, compassion and kindness shown to Carm. Carm was a giving woman and in lieu of flowers would request that you “pay it forward” to a charity of your choice. A service to celebrate her life will be held on Friday December 7, 2018 at 12 Noon at the Barber Memorial Home, Inc. 428 Main Street Johnson City. The family will receive friends on Friday at 11am until the time of the service.
