It is with great sadness that the family of Ethel Helen Alice (Hoben) Dingee announces her sudden passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital, June 15th, 2021.

Ethel is survived by her sons George (Valerie) Dingee, Quispamsis, NB, Robert (Lorraine Johnson) Dingee, Burlington, ON and daughter Ann-Marie Dingee (Paul Hanson) Quispamsis, NB. Her six wonderful grand-daughters brought her great joy: Maria Hanson (Ryan Dobbin), Michelle Hanson (Scott Crowell), Alexandra Johnson Dingee, Kira Johnson Dingee, Claire Dingee and Victoria Dingee. She loved her time with her three great-grandsons, Henry and William Dobbin, and Emerson Crowell and the laughter they provided.
