Nancy Dietsche entered into Eternal Life on June 7, 2019. She was a graduate of Central High School class of 1954. A proud German Russian (Volga Deutsch) known for making fleischbierock for family, friends and neighbors. She was a lifelong resident of Sheboygan who enjoyed her Packers, Brewers and an occasional Old Fashioned or two, maybe three!
Nancy married Felix “Phil” Dietsche on February 18, 1956. Together they raised six children and one granddaughter, Jennifer Lueck. Their joy in life was a family get together at their home purchased in August 1966. Both led with their hearts, always putting others first, devoted to God, family and each other. A great team!
Humor played a big part in her life. She liked to blow in Phil’s ear to see him giggle uncontrollably, he begged her to stop. She didn’t until all her children were laughing.
On Saturdays we cleaned the house. One week she promised her kids a “Buck” if they cleaned quickly. Afterwards she thanked them and turned them around to kick them in the butt with her knee. A “Buck”. Later she took them to D.Q., after all, she was fair.
In her teens, Nancy taught roller skating and did competitive gymnastics at Turners. Later she was a Scouts Den Mother and volunteer with AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary to serve veterans in the area.
She led a life of complete devotion to God, family and Phil. In times of adversity she placed her faith in God and you witnessed true strength of character, an unshakeable faith in her Lord.
Nancy and Phil were active members of Immanuel Lutheran Church and later Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
She was a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother that liked being called “Oma”. She will be greatly missed.
Her legacy to all of unconditional love, patience, humor, perseverance and faith in God shall carry us through until we meet again.
