Carol S. Dietz Obituary
Carol S. Dietz

AGE: 81 • Wilmington, Del.

Carol Smith Dietz passed away peacefully on July 5th after a brief illness.

Born in Wilmington, Delaware to the late Harry Lester Smith and Anne Bodenstedt Smith, Carol graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in music. Returning to Delaware, she took a secretarial job with DuPont where she met her husband of 54 years, John. Together they raised 3 daughters and enjoyed (among their many interests) traveling, tennis, gardening and theater. Carol was also active in local theater groups and later worked as the secretary for Trinity Presbyterian Church.

Carol was predeceased by her daughter, Elizabeth Ann Dietz. She is survived by her husband, John William Dietz, and by her daughters Laura Dietz Richard and Rebecca Lynn Dietz as well as her son-in-law, Francis Andrew Richard.

Family and friends are invited to join us for a celebration of Carol's life at the University of Delaware's Goodstay Center, 2600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Wilmington, Delaware, from 3:30pm to 5:30pm on Thursday, July 14th.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Andy's Friends Cat Rescue & Adoption, PO Box 7303, Wilmington, DE 19803 or Forgotten Cats .
