Obituary of Ingeborg Ursula Dinklage

Ingeborg "Inge" Ursula Dinklage departed this earthly plain on Saturday, July 24th, 2021, to finally "have a cigarette and drink a beer with the devil" after battling multiple cancers during the last seven years of her life. To our surprise, he has surprisingly not sent her back yet, so they're either making out well, or he sent her upstairs for the good Lord to handle her instead. For that we apologize, because your departed loved ones are probably no longer resting in peace but having a great time getting into trouble with her instead. Her first rebellious action was her unexpected birth to the late Siegfried and Annie Frech. She was their third and last child, born in East Germany on May 13th, 1952. Her parents must have quickly realized that her personality would be too much to handle for the Communist bloc, as they successfully escaped to the West not long after she was born. Not a fan of rules or tradition, Inge used her good looks, quick wit, and outspoken personality to make friends easily and to win over many suitors, including her first husband, whom she married at just 16 years old, and later her third and final husband, a handsome and much younger American G.I at 35, all without ever being able to speak a lick of English. Inge immigrated to the United States in 1989 with her family, where she discovered some of her favorite past-times, which included playing Bingo and watching The Price Is Right. For the last three decades in America, her friends and family enjoyed not only her delicious home cooked German meals, but also her solid yet unconventional advice and sense of humor, that included such tips as "marry someone rich that has one foot on a banana peel and the other in the grave" and "If you're going to do drugs, do enough the first time to put you out of your misery for good." Clearly, she never took her own advice, as she was a woman of limited means, but that never stopped her from making sure those around her were well cared for, including the family pets, who always mysteriously ended up with leftover table food. We firmly believe if it wasn't for one of her children taking so long to find one of those "better fishes in the sea", that she probably would have left us a lot sooner, but she held out until all of her kids FINALLY had someone else to look after them after her final departure. Inge is survived and will sorely missed by her five children, including her four daughters, Ellen Arnold, Mona Schrorers, Sabrina Revelee, and Nadine Noky Witting, and her youngest (and very spoiled) son, Brian Dinklage, their significant others, twelve grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and one pampered shih tzu. A special thanks to Bob Barker for teaching Inge how to speak English, Pastor Arthur, and Care First Hospice for their compassion and care while tending to the final days of Inge's passing, and to David Zinger for assisting with final arrangements. In lieu of flowers or a "boring old funeral," Inge would suggest having a beer for her instead and to send Care First at carefirstny.org a donation and/or a letter to Ellen Arnold and Family, P.O BOX 114, Montour Falls, NY 14865.
