New Port RIchey

New Port Richey, FL – Susan Kathleen Dietrich, died Monday, May 27, 2024 at Grand Villa Assisted Living Facility in New Port Richey, FL.

She is survived by her children, Cammy Sawby, Eric Dietrich and Chad Dietrich; her grandchildren Sara Dietrich and Christopher James Sawby; her sisters Wendy Dougherty and Jill Krieg and brother John Christopher Krieg; and many close friends. 

Susan was born in Jamestown, NY and is the daughter of William Krieg and Mary Ellen Krieg Wavering, and moved to Florida in the 1980s to raise her family.

Immediately after high school, Susan obtained her LPN nursing license and began her career as a nurse and caretaker. She later earned her RN license from Jamestown Community College, advancing to become a successful nurse leader. Susan served as a Nurse Supervisor in several local hospitals and as the Director of Nursing for the Visiting Nurse Association. She also became a Professional Guardian, advocating for the elderly and less-fortunate people. 

Susan took immense pride in her work and continued her career well into her 70s, only stopping due to illness. Her dedication and commitment to helping others left an indelible mark on those she cared for and worked with.

Susan enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, had a knack for crafts, and liked the games SkipBo, Rummikub, and Canasta. She most-recently became a fan of Mahjong and had fun playing it online with her sister Wendy.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Her legacy of kindness, dedication, and love will forever remain in our hearts.
