Dear Lois,
It has been years since I've seen you and Dean yet I have very fond memories of him as my doctor and friend. I smile often when I drive past his office in SW and remember the time he asked me and Lynda to officiate with song and message at your church when you were in transition with leadership. I remember going over to your house and "anointing" him with good old Catholic oil of the sick one evening. I loved his humor and gentle manner. I am so sorry to learn of...

To Dean's Family,
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Dr. Dean was my sister-in-law's brother so knew him as a relative and also as a school mate at Auburn and Walla Walla. My thoughts reach out to the family he cherished. Godspeed.

What a wonderful doctor!! I remember when I was a little girl Dr. Dietrich gave my cabbage patch doll a shot, to show me it wouldnt hurt.
He also found a problem with my brothers heart, no one else knew what was wrong, he figured it out.
God bless you

Dear Loise
my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I was unable to attend the service as I had a bug and was staying home. I do want to tell you that I have many wonderful memorie of Dean from went I worked with him at United General Hospital. We shared laughs and worked together well. I remember when you worked with us as well. You take care. I'm glad for those early years when we all worked together closely.

Our prayers are for the family of Dr. Dietrich.We are sorry to learn that he passed on and we send our love to you. He delivered our first daughter and our second daughter with Dr. Vanoy Smith at United General Hospital. When he came to the hospital to help me deliver the first one, I remember it was hot in July and he was wearing shorts and apologizing for the way he was dressed. I was in a lovely hospital gown and I told him he was dressed much better than I and we laughed! He always shared...

I worked with Dr. Dietrich in the 70's when I was an LPN working in the Maternity Ward at United General Hospital. Then I had the privelege of meeting his mother when I rented the little house on Reed ST. What a wonderful lady. In the 90's, Dr Dietrich became my Dad's Physhcian when he became ill and passed away. Daddy never got sick or went to the doctor for anything, he was very impressed with Dr.Dietrich, he spoke very highly of him. Thank you Lord, for giving me the oppourtunity to...

My condolences to Lois and family in the loss of a husband & father. He will be deeply missed. As a nurse, I worked with and knew Dean when he was a practicing physician at United General Hospital in Sedro Woolley. He was a wonderful and caring person and was always cheerful even when times were difficult for his patients. Sorry to have missed your memorial service.

In the hospital's delivery room, literally the first person I ever saw.
My thanks for 33 years of care Doc. You will be deeply missed.

Just learned of Dean's death. I'm so sorry. I'm sure he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. I have such fond memories of our Auburn Academy days when Dean and I were members of the class of 1957. Dean played leadership roles well, and excelled academically. I had fun competing with him in Professor Reed's science classes when our class standing resulted in a "better" chair. It has been nice to see him during subsequent class reunions and catch up with our lives....
