BJ is survived by her devoted husband of 31 years, Earl Wayne Dingle and her brother, Ralph (Beth) Sheely of Carlisle.
BJ had a passion for problem solving. After high school, she continued her education at Harrisburg Area Community College and earned her Associates degree in Crisis Counseling. She was a homemaker and member of Sandy Hill United Church of Christ, where she served as the Church Secretary.
