Jessie Marie Dingler

of North Little Rock, AR

May 18, 1933 - August 24, 2013

Jessie Marie Dingler, 80, of North Little Rock departed this life on Saturday, August 24, 2013. She was born May 18, 1933 in Ida, LA, to the late Harvey and Elsie Gilbert. On November 4, 1955, Jessie married Glenn Dingler and together they had three sons. They were married 57 years. She loved family gatherings, and getting together with friends.
Jessie enjoyed staying busy, whether working at the AR Revenue Department, AR State Legislature, Dillard's Department Store, or JC Penney, or in her yard. Jessie appreciated knick-knacks and other dcor that turned a house into a home. She even owned a gift shop called Arcade Gifts and Accents for over 6 years in West Little Rock. An Arkansas Democrat Profile on Business article stated, "The gift business has always been fascinating to Jessie, even before she opened her store. She said that in working two consecutive Christmases at Dillard's Department Store, she specifically asked to be placed in the gift department." Jessie loved serving her customers, saying, "It's exciting to find that one special thing for them."
Church was very important to Jessie. She was active in her church, Windsong Church of Christ, where she was also a member of WOW (Women of Windsong). Jessie served with her husband in a number of overseas mission trips, teaching English as a second language with the Bible.
In addition to her parents, Jessie was preceded in death by three brothers James Gilbert, Jimmy Ray Gilbert, and Tommy Gilbert. She is survived by her husband, Glenn Dingler of North Little Rock; her three sons, Robert, Michael, and Steven, and their wives; three grandchildren and four grand-dogs; two sisters, Sue Braun and Mary Albright, and their husbands; one brother, John Gilbert and his wife; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
The family would like to thank the Sherwood Nursing & Rehabilitation staff, Odyssey Hospice staff, and Hospice Home Care staff for their comfort, support, and friendship. Her last days were peaceful, and she was surrounded by her family, which she held dear.
Memorials can be sent to the Southern Christian Home, a mission that serves school-age children (P.O. Box 649, Morrilton, AR 72110); Partners in Progress, a medical mission to take staff and supplies up rivers in third world countries and sponsored by Windsong Church of Christ (P.O. Box 13989, Maumelle, AR 72113), or the Alzheimer's Association (10002 West Markham, Little Rock, AR 72205).
Visitation will be from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M., Monday, August 26, 2013 at Roller-Owens Funeral Home, 5509 JFK Blvd, North little Rock, AR 72116, 1- 501-791-7400. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 P.M., Tuesday, August 27, 2013, at Windsong Church of Christ, 3 Windsong Dr., North Little Rock, Arkansas, with John Gipson and Joe Chesser officiating. Internment will follow at Rest Hills Memorial Park in North Little Rock.

Glenn & family, I am sorry for your loss. I just now found out Mrs Jessie had passed & I hated to hear the news. I still remember that summer you opened your home to me so that I had a place to stay during my internship at Channel 4. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Jessie was a swell neighbor for 10 years. Always available to give advise, weather wanted or not. I enjoyed her so much. When she worked for the Legislature, she was a helpful compliment to the activities of the capitol.
She was just a delightful person.
