Cassandra Dingle, the eldest child of Willean and the late Ervin Dingle, was born June 29, 1957, in Baltimore, MD. On April 28, 2022, she was ushered into the kingdom of heaven after suddenly transitioning from her earthly life. Her unwavering love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ supported her in health struggles and ultimately gave her refuge and rest.\r\n\r\nCassandra received her formal education in the Baltimore City Public School System, graduating from Edmondson High School in 1975. After graduation, Cassandra entered the workforce in Baltimore, MD where she eventually retired from Johns Hopkins CTY after a 20-year tenure.\r\n\r\nDuring her adolescent years, she forged lifelong friendships with her "clique," as well as her love of fashion. Cassandra was known as a "sharp" fashionista, wearing some of the "baddest" pieces. Her love for fashion expanded beyond her own closet, as she was always called on by family and friends as their personal shopper and stylist. \r\n\r\nAffectionately known as "Sandy," she was loved by all who knew and met her, whether for years or perhaps a chance meeting in an office or store. You always left her presence covered in love, as well as prayer. But no love was greater than that of Sandy's for her children, Da'Vaughn and Dayarn, and her grandchildren, Taylor and Caleb. They were truly the light of her world. Sandy had a fire for the word of God, which was sown at an early age in attendance at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church. As she grew in her walk with the Lord, she experienced a calling of fellowship at Transformation Church of Jesus Christ, under the pastorship of Bishop Monroe Saunders, Jr. and First Lady Winsome Saunders. Sandy attended worship and study services with such a zeal for the word of God, that you could find her having "post" church with her prayer warriors until the lights went out.\r\n\r\nSandy loved her family on such an immense level. She enjoyed family gatherings, always ensuring there was a feast fit for kings when it came to her family. Sandy delighted in watching the children interact with one another and show their talents. Everyone's biggest cheerleader, she always offered encouragement, excitement, and genuine interest in everyone's journey. Her smile lit up every room. It's that smile and effervescent presence that will surely be missed by all.\r\n\r\nSandy leaves to cherish a lifetime of memories, her: devoted mother, Willean Dingle; adoring children, H. DaVaughn Mellerson (Dyani) and Dayarna Byrd (Robert Russell); doting grandchildren, Taylor Russell and Caleb Mellerson; siblings, Sheila Garrett (Kelly), Myron Dingle, Teresa Dingle, and Kimberly Jacobs; nieces and nephews, Damon Jones, Dawnikquie Robertson, Craig Jacobs (Shayla), Daniesha Hinton (Evan), Devin Dingle (Shayvon), and Daniel Tynes; godchildren, Tina Gilliam, Nicholas Campbell, and Devin Dingle; aunts and uncles, Susie Ferrell, Willie "Beck" King of Baltimore, MD, Mary (Gene) Watson of Washington, DC, Loretta (Thomas) Jacobs, and Larnell (Terry) King of New Jersey; lifelong friends, Becky Neal, Wanda Murphy, Kortez Graham, Alberta Walker, Sheila Lucas-Johnson, and Denise Roberts; 13 great nieces and nephews; and a host of cousins and friends.\r\n\r\nSandy was preceded in death by her brother, Maurice Dingle, and best friend, Debbie Bass.
