Jill Kit Dietrich, age 49, of Middletown, DE, passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2020.
Born in Wilmington, DE on September 23, 1971, she was the daughter of Peter and Jeanette (Sczubelek) Kit. After graduating from St. Marks High School, Jill earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Ithaca College. She worked as a physical therapist beginning in Virginia at Physical Therapy Works then at Delaware Curative, Dynamic and Pivot Physical Therapy, all in Middletown.
Jill was the angel of her family and gave her heart and soul to everyone she met. She loved to help people and was a skilled and dedicated physical therapist. Her strong faith in God was evident in her position as a Eucharistic minister of Saint Joseph’s RC church where she was very involved and happily and readily volunteered at the carnivals and other events. Jill was adored by her friends and family. She loved gardening and the beauty that each season brought to their home. More than anything, Jill loved being a mother to her sons Kyle and Aiden. Jill found such joy in watching her boys excel in bowling, soccer, and volleyball. She also played Pokémon Go with them, cherishing each victory.
Jill is survived by her adoring husband of 22 years who has been her best friend and greatest supporter, Justin Dietrich; beloved sons, Kyle J. Dietrich and Aiden N. Dietrich of Middletown; adoring parents, Peter and Jeanette (Sczubelek) Kit of Wilmington; loving brother, Kevin M. Kit (Stephanie) of Knoxville, TN; aunt, Elaine Burrows (Jim) of Wilmington; uncle, Walter Sczubelek (Kathy) of Wilmington; nephews, Nathan Kit and Nolan Kit of Knoxville, TN; and cousins.
