Dr. Angelo P. Pente, 89, Canton dentist

Dr. Angelo P. Pente, a dentist in Canton for more than four decades, died of heart failure Oct. 24 at his Mayfield home. He was 89.

Dr. Pente practiced general dentistry from an Elwood Avenue rowhouse from 1935 to 1978.

"If they couldn't pay, he didn't charge and if there was a family of six, he'd only charge for one. That's the kind of man he was," said a daughter, Angela Bowden of Mayfield. "There were times he'd accept chickens or vegetables for payment."

Born and raised in Little Italy, Dr. Pente graduated from Calvert Hall High School in 1927 and Loyola College in 1931. He was a 1935 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.

His professional memberships included the Gorgas Odontological Society, the Baltimore City Dental Society and the Maryland State Dental Association.

He was a communicant of the Roman Catholic Shrine of the Little Flower, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered Oct. 28.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, the former Naomi Coscia; and two other daughters, Rosemary Sisson of Bel Air and Marian Brown of Littlestown, Pa.; a brother, John Pente, and a sister, Rose Lancelotta, both of Baltimore; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Carol L. Bing, a homemaker and former physical therapist, died of cancer Nov. 3 at her Guilford home. She was 76.

She joined the Womens Army Corps and was assigned to the Fort Howard Veterans Hospital as a physical therapist during World War II. She was discharged at war's end.

In 1948, she married Dr. James F. Bing, a psychotherapist, who died in 1986.

An outdoorswoman, she enjoyed hiking, fishing and horseback riding at a summer home she and her husband owned in Ennis, Mont.

For more than 30 years, Mrs. Bing was a volunteer with the Red Cross and Girl Scouts.
