  1. My family lived across the street from Frank and Kathy going back to the ’60s. They were such wonderful neighbors and fellow members of St. Lawrence Martyr. Now they are neighbors once again with Joe & Betty Rooney.
    I will always remember Kathy as someone who fulfilled her life by enriching others selflessly. And that smile!

  2. Dear Dieter Family,
    My love and prayers are with you all at this most difficult
    time. Such a special Lady who will be sorely missed by all of us.
    We all have such wonderful memories of Kathy and Frank that will keep them ever close in our hearts. May Christ’s Peace be with you.
    Love, Konnie and Family.

  3. Kathy was a dear lady as was Frank her husband. They both knew me since I was a young boy. Kathy used to be the bookstore mgr. at Bishop Montgomery and I would hang out with her in the mornings before school. They were always supportive of me through my life and the years in the seminary and after ordination. Now, I am 23 years ordained a priest and have tow more souls in heaven praying for me! God bless the both of you…..Love, Fr. Mark Strader
