It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Denise Dietrich of Calgary on Monday, March 9, 2009 at the early age of 51 years, due to an unexpected encounter with a stroke.
Denise’s favourite leisure activities included traveling places with her partner Arnie Johnson, sharing moments, playing cards, board games and watching cartoons with her beloved daughter Daralee. Her ultimate labour of love was cooking up a storm for those she loved and cherished. Denise worked hard and accomplished a career as a court clerk for the Alberta Justice Office establishing many new relationships, forming the strongest bonds and making her life a memorable one
