Dee (Nov. 1, 1943 - May 17, 2014), as she was known to her family and friends rests peacefully now with the angels. This world has lost a truly good and gentle soul. Her battle with lung cancer ended early Saturday morning at her home. She had been fighting illnesses for quite awhile. She was a kidney cancer survivor, but grew very tired since being diagnosed in January during a five week stay in the ICU at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa. After a short stay at the Bradford County Manor, she decided to enjoy her remaining days with her family and friends in the comfort of her own home on Barclay Mountain on Hospice care.
The Guest Book is expired.
She left this world quietly and peacefully with a small smile on her face having lived a crazy, wild and full life and knowing she was with the love of her life, George Carlisle.
Dee enjoyed playing Bingo, going to the casinos, crafting, reading, playing her online games and face painting at the local fairs but more than anything she loved spending time with her family and George. And she loved with all her heart! When Dee loved you, you knew you were loved! When she hugged you, you knew you had just been hugged! When you talked to her, important or not, she listened. She offered everything she had to anyone that needed it. Friends, family, strangers, her table or a couch was always ready for whoever showed up!
Having grown up in Manyunk, (Philadelphia) Pa. during the Depression with eight other siblings, she saw her share of struggles. She went on to raise five children of her own, 11 grandchildren, and even three great-grandsons that are proud to call her Mom and Nanny. Sometimes working several jobs to make ends meet, mostly factory work or waitressing, she still made time to make "family time" a priority. When Dee met George, "Pop" to us, in 1975 she finally knew she had found happiness. She had found her soul mate and someone who would return to her the love she had always so generously given out. They hunted and vacationed for a few years before moving from New Jersey to Barclay Mountain in 1989 to stay and make it home.
Dee will be met in heaven by her mother, Florence (Eaton) Moyer; her brothers, Walter "Remmy" Moyer, Billy Moyer and Michael Moyer of Manyunk, Pa.; sisters, Jacquelyn "Jacqui" Moyer, of Lansdale, Pa. and Valerie Wobensmith of Hatboro, Pa.; brother-in-law, Thomas Martin of Collegeville, Pa.; infant grandson, Dane Weed, and many of her friends.
She is survived and will be missed by sisters, Priscilla "Sue" Martin, of Collegeville, Pa., Patricia Flem of Nanticoke, Pa. and brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Zettia Moyer, of Manyunk, Pa., Tom Wobensmith, of Hatboro, Pa., and by her "D's," her children, daughters and sons-in-law, Deena Weed and Glenn Miller, of Piscataway, N.J., and Danna Sayers and Paul Champlavier, from Towanda, Pa.; sons and daughters-in-law, David and Teri Dungee, from Lansdale, Pa., Dane and Lisa Dungee, from her favorite sunny W. Melbourne, Fla., Dorian and Maria Dungee, from Pennsuaken, N.J.; and grandson Christopher Carlisle, of Monroeton, Pa. Dee also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and friends who grew up with "Aunt Dee" that she will now be watching over.
A private family service will be held on Tuesday morning. A memorial service is scheduled at 7 p.m. for Wednesday evening, May 21, 2014 at the Maryott-Bowen Funeral Home, 217 York Ave. in Towanda for those that wish to pay respects or celebrate her life. One of Dee's last wishes was that in lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to, instead send a donation to Memorial Hospital's Hospice in Towanda or to a
program near them in her memory.
