Marie A. Dingee, 92, of Milford, Connecticut, beloved wife of the late Ralph Dingee, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 15, 2022. Born on September 11, 1929 in Bridgeport, Connecticut she was the daughter of the late Michael and Anna (Brezynski) Molchan.
Marie was a proud graduate of Harding High School in Bridgeport. In addition to caring for her children, she worked at Read’s Department Store in Bridgeport for many years before retiring and enjoying her life with her husband of 63 years, Ralph, and her family. Ralph and Marie were always available to babysit and spend time with their grandsons and the boys have many fond memories of time spent with them. She was an excellent cook and baker, much to the delight of her family. She always looked forward to and enjoyed her trips to the casino with her son, Dennis. Her guilty pleasure was playing the daily numbers (always 50 cents boxed). Marie was a fan of the NY Yankees and the Mets, the NY Giants, and UConn basketball. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother and will be greatly missed by her family.
