Happy 100th birthday, Mom


My mother, who died in October, 2000, would have celebrated her 100th birthday today.

That’s her in the youngest photo I have of her – the little girl in the white frock flanked by her parents, John and Emma Dietz and her older siblings Carl and Ruth. Another brother, John, was born later and died at the age of 18 of head injuries suffered in a horseback riding accident.

Mom was a Registered Nurse and kept her license current until she died.

That’s why we laid her to rest in her nurse’s uniform. She would have liked that, I think.
