Condolence & Memory Journal

Sending hugs to the most loving & kind family. I know what a loss this is for them. I was able to provide loving care for Mrs D and meet her wonderful children. I will never forget you all.

To the entire Dietzler Family, I just heard about your Mother's passing yesterday, to say I was shocked is an understatement. The love my Mother had for her was just beautiful. She adored the "O'Brien Girls", they were all perfect in her eyes. I was the flower girl in your parents' wedding, a memory I still hold dear. My prayers are with you all.
With love, Margie Doyle Koch

My sincere sympathy goes out to each Dietzler family member with the tremendous loss of the matriarch of the family. You were the most loving & dedicated family I have ever seen, as I have worked in senior health care for many years. Your mother was truly loved by each of you & she is smiling down from heaven knowing what a fine family she has raised. God bless you all as you are in my thoughts & prayers.

To all of the Dietzler Family, My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you. Your Mom was like my second Mom growing up. Sometimes I think I spent more time at your house then I did at my own home. I loved to hear your Mom singing as she was cooking, or just to sit down and talk to her when I got older. Even with 9 of you in the house she always welcomed your friends with a smile. When we had our annual summer show for the neighbors. Your Mom never complained about us having it at your house, the playroom as the dressing room, I'm sure it drove her crazy, but she never said a bad word. Lindale Avenue will always hold such special memories. May all your wonderful memories get you through this sad time. I know your Mom and Dad are smiling down on all you. I can hear Mr. Dietzler saying as soon as Mrs. Dietzler entered Heaven "Look at the wonderful job we did" as they gaze at all of you. You were raised by awesome parents. They left a legacy with all of you.
