In Memory of Kathy Dietrich
On August 1 Kathy Dietrich passed away at Chinook hospice in Calgary, surrounded by family. Some of her final words to her colleagues were “make sure you keep doing ‘good’ for other people, as that is what gives life meaning”. This was the philosophy that Kathy exemplified in her life.
Kathy was a dedicated public servant, a leader, a team player, and both a planning and business professional. To Kathy, people and relationships were everything. Kathy always put her team’s needs before her own, never turned away anyone looking for advice and took great pride in mentoring emerging female leaders.
There will be a memorial service on Tuesday, August 8 in the afternoon to honour Kathy’s life, career and significant contributions to her community. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to the Calgary Foundation as part of the Kathy Dietrich Memorial Fund, which is in the process of being set up to honour Kathy’s efforts to make Calgary a vibrant and inclusive city.
