From Richland, WA | Born in Tyler, TX
On Tuesday November 01, 2022 Judy Dietert loving wife, mother and grandmother passed away at the age of 85.
Judy was born on August 21,1937 in Tyler, Texas to Troy and Martha (Mason) Stalls. She received her education degree from Rice University in Texas in 1959 and taught French in middle school.
On June 09, 1961 she married Scott Edward Dietert they raised two daughters, Pamela and Krista.
Judy had a passion for reading and was known to often read a single book in a day. She also loved Christmas and sharing the joy of the season with those around her and had an extensive handmade Christmas craft collection. She will be remembered for her delicious kitchen creations, especially at Christmas that she generously shared with friends and neighbors. A lifelong sports fan she has always cheered for the Mariners, even when they were doing poorly. And March Madness brought her joy cheering on her beloved Zags! She was well known for her ability to connect with others easily, her daily neighborhood walks with her dog, and her kind and loving spirit.
Judy was preceded in death by her loving daughter Krista. She is survived by her husband Scott, her daughter Pamela, her son-in law Robert, her grandson Ryan and special family members Nan, Lyndon, Ken, Judi and Ann.
At Judy’s request there will be no funeral or memorial service. The family asks in lieu of flowers that donations be sent to your local animal shelter or humane society.
Judy was one of my mom’s special friends. They met in 1988 when my parents moved to Richland. My mom was always telling us tidbits about ‘my friend Judy’. I remember them celebrating birthdays over a cinnamon roll, sharing recipe tips and religiously following the Zags. Judy added my sister and I to her email circle. I loved her spirit and strength no matter the challenge.
Sending prayers to Judy’s family.
Judy became a very special person in my life the last 10 years! We shared family history, stories and lots of laughs on the phone, email or by text. Our biggest regret was that we never met in person but felt very grateful and blessed for the time we had to chat!
Judy was a kind, animal loving lady. I enjoyed talking with her about our dogs. I would see her and Scott walking their last dog, Dusty, every day. Sometimes they would walk together and sometimes separate. Dusty was walked twice a day. She would e-mail my husband and I also keeping up on the latest news. She didn’t like texting. We enjoyed her e-mails. I also enjoyed visiting occasionally with her in her home. She also liked to read. I would give her some mysteries that I had read. She didn’t like paperbacks so I would give her a hardback if I had read one. I miss seeing her smiling face.
