Patricia "Pat" Dinger



Patricia "Pat" Dinger, 69, passed away on Nov. 13, 2007 at her home in Ocean City, N.J. Despite her battle with cancer for the past three-and-a-half years, Pat managed to keep her sense of humor and remained kind, caring and devoted to her family and friends.

Pat was born on Oct. 23, 1938 in Philadelphia, Pa. In January 1960 she married Jack Dinger, also of Philadelphia. Together they raised four children in a home filled with love and laughter.

Park City was home to Pat and her family from 1981 to1989. While living in Park City, Pat made many friends and contributed greatly to the community. She was active in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, KPCW, the Kimball Art Center and the Park City Arts Festival.

Upon leaving Park City, Pat and Jack moved to a place they loved, Ocean City, N.J. Pat enjoyed volunteering for the Beach Walk program. Her guided beach walks were a great source of pleasure for her and all who attended.

Pat is survived by her husband, Jack, of 47 years, and her four children: Jack Dinger (wife, Cathy) of Williamstown, N.J.; Chuck Dinger (wife, Aimee) of Park City, Utah; Jim Dinger of Medford, N.J.; Kathy Burke (husband, Doug) of Park City, Utah. Grandma Pat was loved by her eight grandchildren; Danae, Nicollette, Adriana, Luke, Sharkie (Jack), Samantha, Sam and Chloe. Pat is also survived by her sister, Mary Ann Sullivan, of Oak Ridge, N.J.

Pat was loved by many and will be missed by all!

A Memorial Mass was offered Friday morning, Nov. 16, at 11 from St. Frances Cabrini R. C. Church, Second Street at Atlantic Avenue, Ocean City, N.J.
