Susan Jane Dieterich, 78, died peacefully on June 15, 2023 at Stacyville Community Nursing Home. A memorial service will be held on July 1, 2023 at First Lutheran Church in St. Ansgar with Rev. Christopher Staley officiating. Visitation will be June 30, 2023 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at Schroeder & Sites Funeral Home in St. Ansgar. Susan requested that everyone dress casual for memorial service and visitation.

Susan Dieterich was born October 6, 1944, minutes before her twin sister to Glenn and Olga (Olson) Thoen in Northwood, Iowa. She was baptized, confirmed and married in the First Lutheran Church Northwood. Susan graduated from Northwood-Kensett High School in 1963. On January 6, 1973, Susan married Keith Dieterich. She and Keith established a home in St. Ansgar, Iowa and became members of the First Lutheran Church in St. Ansgar.

Susan's greatest joy and accomplishment was becoming a mother and being able to be a fulltime homemaker. Family has always been Susan's priority, not just her sons and husband, but her parents, siblings and their children and extended family members. She always made herself and her home available to her family. She was happiest being a wife, mother, grandmother and friend. After her son's moved out and started their own families, her grandchildren became her pride and joy ever since.

Susan is survived by her husband, Keith; her son's Darren (Kate) Dieterich and children, Morgan, Will and Adie of Cedar Falls, and Derek (Katie) Dieterich and children Matthew and Haley of St. Ansgar; twin sister, Sandra Thoen of Mason City; sister, Donna Stoltenberg of Mason City; brothers, Bob (Terri) Thoen of Burke, VA: David (Helen) Thoen of Manly and John (Drenda) Thoen of Windsor, CO: sister-in-law, Judy Everds, of Owatonna MN and Jean (George) Currier of Red Wing, MN; brother-in-law, Darcy Erion of Hughesville, MD, and Jerry (Barb) Dieterich of Morristown, TN; dozens of nieces and nephews; many great and great-great nieces and nephews; several cousins and a lifetime of friends.

Susan was preceded in death by her parents, Glenn and Olga Thoen, parents-in-law, Bill and Agnes Dieterich; sisters Marj Wescott and Ruth Erion; brother-in-law, Chris Stoltenerg, George Wescott and Dave Everds; sister-in-law, Eunice Dieterich; one niece, three nephews, one great niece and one great nephew.

Susan's family would like to thank Dr. Ross and all the staff at the Osage hospital, St. Ansgar Clinic and the Stacyville Community Nursing Home.
