Sadly, on August 1, 2019, Anna Cecelia Dietz (nee Carini), a four time cancer survivor, passed after long hard-fought struggle with her determined foe. She was 84. Her courage and tenacity will be remembered by many.
The only daughter of Estelle and Benedict Carini, she was born in Baltimore but would ultimately spend 50 years of life in Linthicum, her home.
Mrs. Dietz is well known for her service to the community as a Crossing Guard, a labor of love that she cherished. This, her second career, followed a 3 decade run with the administration at the Anne Arundel County Board of Education. Anna was a member of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church where she also participated in the Sodality. She is the dear wife of the late Henry Edmond to whom she was wed in 1956. Mrs. Dietz loved to read and do crafting but more importantly she was involved in and volunteered for many charitable causes, such as "We Believe in Tomorrow "and "The Relay for Life," to name a few. It was said that, "Anna pretty much held every position available at one time or another." She was also an active member of the board for the Crestwood Homemakers Association and a faithful participant with the Linthicum Woman's Club.
Anna is survived by her daughter Denise C. McElroy and husband Matt A. and son Patrick E. and wife Lisa (nee Major) Dietz. Her memory lives on in her sole, beloved granddaughter Morgan Ashlee Dietz, with whom she shares, indelibly, the phrase, "Today, Tomorrow, Always...."
A devoted dog lover, Anna leaves her grand-dogs 'Louie' and 'Khloe' and joins her late companions,'Mickie,' Shortie' and 'Maggie,' in passing, as we all know, all dogs go to heaven.
Anna was a loving mother, grandmother and dear friend to many. She must surely be missed.
