No, I am not a direct relative, but a distant cousin, and I hope, a friend.
We researched the Dingee family since we were both descendants. I never met
her in person, but I did speak with her on the phone shortly before her death.
She had been sick for a while.
She will be dearly missed.
P. S. I will send this to the Putnam County list just in case there are any
more out there not aware of her passing. Wish I had an obituary to post for
her. Couldn't find one online.

Gosh, this is a shock!! I never new. I wonder why this wasn't
mentioned on any of the lists that she was so active on.
Are you a relative?? Was she ill??
Yes, she will be missed!!!
So sorry to hear this, she and I exchanged many emails on our Ganoungs
and I just received new info I wanted to share with her.
Wow, I can't believe this.
