Dietrich, Loreen Gertrude (Fritz)
Passed away suddenly but peacefully with her children by her side at the Wiarton Hospital, on Monday, September  4, 2017. Loreen was born 81 years ago in Wilmot Township and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Ella (Schnarr) Fritz.
Beloved wife of Alfred Dietrich who predeceased her on June 4, 2016. Loving mother of Gary (Sheilah) Dietrich of Kitchener, Laurie (Steve) Dietrich of St. Agatha, Tony (late Joanne) Dietrich of Kitchener, Betty (Tim) Shantz of St. Agatha, Debb (Todd) Hoffman of Baden and Paula (Tim) Fewkes of New Hamburg.  Sadly missed by her 19 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.  Remembered by her sisters-in-law Norma Fritz & Rita Fritz and brother-in-law Neil Beggs also by Alfreds sisters Mary Cremasco, Rita (Vernon) Starra, Carole Paul, Dietrich sisters-in-law Marion, Evelyn, Grace, Gloria.  Loreen was predeceased by her sisters Ellen Beggs, Rita Fritz and brothers Wilfred, Vincent and Clare (Pat) Fritz.
Loreen was a member of St. Agatha Roman Catholic Church and was a member of the St. Agatha C.W.L.   By far, Loreen’s greatest contribution was the love and care she lavished on her “little ones” over a life time career of babysitting.

Hi Friends
I was shocked and saddened to learn of your mother’s death. Such a fine lady. She was so good to my dad when he was Alf’s roommate.

I would have come to the visitation but I have broken my ankle and knee so didn’t feel I could stand for long. I knew the lines would be long for this lovely lady.

My phone number is. 519-656-2824 if someone feels like calling me to chat.

Your mom will be remembered by many at Nithview for her hearty laugh and her engaging personality! I enjoyed many connections with both of your parents, however most of the time your dad was content to let your mom and me do all the talking! She will be deeply missed by those here who appreciated her care and support. God’s strength to all of you in this time of significant grief and loss. Pastor Sherri

Sending our deepest condolences to all of Rennie’s family and friends. She truly was an angel and the best babysitter a little girl could ask for. i will always remember eating celery and dunking it in sugar…Renne would always say shhhh don’t tell your mom I let you do that. Dancing to records and a trip to the fruit cellar to choose cookies for desert. She was one amazing lady and I will truly miss our Christmas visit and our cookie exchange each year, so happy we always kept that up, your cookies were always the best Rennie. Rest in peace. Love you always xoxo

Sending our deepest deepest condolences to all of Grandma Rennie’s family and friends. She truly was an angel here on earth with so many talents (egg salad sandwiches on top of list), such a warm smile, contagious laugh but most appealing was her genuine love of fun and her deep pride in her family. I will so cherish the memories of hanging out with this family over the years. …. Mama’s tippy toeing, daddy’s tippy toeing too (together again) Love and hugs to you all – she shines on in each and every one of you
