Jo ' LO Aurora--Joseph L. Dietsch, a lifelong member of Our Lady of Good Counsel parish, was buried from the parish church Wednes- day morning, Nov. 12, with a sol- emn Requiem Mass offered by his son, the Rev. C. Alfred Dietsch, pastor of Holy Cross parish, Stock- ton. Mr. Dietsch, age 77, died last Sunday evening in the home of Father Dietsch at Stockton. On Tuesday morning in Holy Cross parish church, Stockton, Father Dietsch also offered a solemn Req- uiem Mass for the repose of his father's soul. After retiring from active work, Mr. and Mrs. Dietsch made their home with Father Dietsch at Stock- ton. At the Mass in Stockton were present Mrs. Dietsch, the widow, and Mrs. Joseph Backes, a daugh- ter, with her family from Aurora. Assisting Father Dietsch at the Mass were the Revs. Edward Con- nolly, John Tuchlinsky and Walter Lessman. The Rev. N. J. Berg preached the sermon describing Mr. Dietsch, whom he had known intimately, as a "Christian gentle- man." At the Mass in Our Lady of Good Council parish church, Father Dietsch was assisted by the Revs. Joseph Healy, Joseph Rzeszotko and Henry Weckerle. The Rev. Herman Meilinger, pastor of the parish, preached the sermon. Monsignori and priests of the Rockford dioceae and neighboring dioceses attended the Masses at Stockton and Aurora. They united with friends of the family and par- ishioners of both parishes in ex- tending sympathy to the family and in assuring them of a remem- brance for Mr. Dietsch in their prayers. He was a member of the Holy Name society in Our Lady of Good Counsel parish, the Catholic Order of Foresters and the Western Catholic Union. He has two grand- children, Alfred and Marilyn; one brother, Alfred, and three sisters,../ .| PIU/~| D Mrs. Delia Harris, Minneapolis,[~atn0.~0r| Minn., Mrs. Katherine Neal and Mrs. Martha Larson, of Aurora.
