Prayers for the Dieterman family

September 13, 2018


Dr. Larry Dieterman passed away peacefully at his home in Winona on Sept. 12. A wake/visitation is planned for Friday, Sept. 21, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Fawcett Junker Funeral Home and a funeral Mass will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, at St. Mary’s Parish.

Dr. Dieterman taught in the Chemistry Department at Saint Mary’s from 1963-1999. His wife, the late Shirley Dieterman, was the daughter of former baseball coach, Max Molock. Shirley preceded Larry in death and worked as a lab tech in the Chemistry Department at Saint Mary’s from 1989-2004. The couple has many ties to Saint Mary’s. Survivors with ties to Saint Mary’s include sons Daniel Dieterman ’83, Douglas Dieterman ’92 and Scott Dieterman ’84; two grandchildren, Felicia Dieterman ’15 (daughter of Doug), and Tyler Dieterman ’08 (son of Scott); and a daughter-in-law Eve (Kendrick) Dieterman ’85, (spouse of Dan).

His obituary can be found here. Saint Mary’s extends its sympathy to the Dieterman family.
