WILMINGTON — Jean Dietrich, 89, died Sunday, Aug. 8, 2021.
Jean was born Aug. 5, 1932, in England to Mr. and Mrs. J.T. Portman. Her sister, Phyllis Portman, survives her in England. Jean very proudly became a naturalized citizen of the United States on April 6, 1978. Jean had a 30-year career with Mutual of New York (MONY).
Jean’s husband, Andrew B. Dietrich, preceded her in death in 2000. She and Andy retired to Wilmington in 1989 and loved living in the home they designed in Eastwood Village. Jean enjoyed golfing at Pine Valley and volunteering. She was a regular volunteer at Thalian Hall, Wilmington International Airport and many other venues.
Jean dearly loved the Dietrich family, David Dietrich (Lynn), Randy Dietrich (Kim), Greg Dietrich (Liliana) and Lorren Sandt (Kevin), and they loved her too and will cherish her memory; and four grandchildren, Dana, Turner, Molly and Mara will always remember happy times spent at Wrightsville Beach.
Jean’s family thanks her best friend, Jill Hobson, and all the health care professionals who have helped and cared for Jean on her journey.
No services are planned at this time.
