Rita Dietz Conner


It is with heavy hearts that the family of Rita Dietz Conner announces her passing on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loved ones at the age of 64. A Celebration of Life will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 5, at St. John Lutheran Church in Iota. Burial will follow in the Maxie Cemetery with Pastor David Greene officiating.

A proud veteran, Rita served in the United States Army for four years. She loved the outdoors, fishing and being a bee keeper as well as cooking for family gatherings, but most of all she was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend and will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.

Rita’s memory will live on in all who loved her, especially her husband of 18 years, Tom Conner; her son, Dennis Holy and wife Chelle of Iota; daughter, Dana Bouget and husband Luke of Iota; a stepson, Brian Conner of Lafayette; three brothers, Marvin Dietz and wife Lois of Eunice, Lee Dietz and wife Brenda of Iota and Velton Deitz and wife Gertie of Abbeville; three sisters, Evelyn “Sister” Reagan and Mavis Dietz, both of Iota, and Doris Reagan and husband Donald of Egan. She was blessed with three grandchildren, Taylor Darbonne, William Rose, and Mason Holy; and one step-grandchild, Paxton Conner. Also mourning her loss are nephews, nieces, extended family and friends.

She now rests in heaven with her beloved son, Jason Holy; her parents, Edward and Mabel Miller Dietz; her brothers, Roland, Bruce, Freddie, Francis and Aubrey Dietz; and a sister, Ruth Richardson.

At the request of the family, visitation was held at Ardoin’s Funeral Home in Iota on Wednesday, June 4, from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. and again on Thursday, June 5, from 8 a.m. until time of services.
