Letitia Jean Dame, 93, passed from life into eternity on July 20, 2020. The loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother was born in West Fairview, PA, July 15, 1927.
On July 6, 1946 she married Joseph T. Dame, Sr and traveled the world with her Navy husband, until settling in California to enjoy the rest of their fifty-seven-year marriage.
Once her husband passed, the family moved back to Pennsylvania where Tish ballroom danced weekly with her companion and friend, Pete Camasi, until unforeseen circumstance took her off the dance floor. Throughout her years, she enjoyed life to the fullest every second she had. From tax preparation to dancing to making outfits for an episode of Hawaii 5-0, Tish was a five-foot-two, eyes-of-blue dynamo, full of verve, love, and passion.
She is survived by her four children and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Son, Joseph T. Dame, Jr and his spouse Veronique Dame (in France); daughter, Janie Dame (in Hawaii); daughter, Judy Lynn and her spouse Robert Labs (in Pennsylvania); daughter, Jill and her spouse Robert Bland (in California) will all miss her and her sparkle. The grandchildren and great-grandchildren feel the same loss. Yet everyone also knows she is in a better place, dancing her cha-chas and laughing in the loving arms of her beloved husband.
A private graveside service is scheduled at Stone Church in Enola.
The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Dame family.
