Obituary – Martha "Marti" Dietrich
Martha “Marti” Dietrich
January, 1961 – March, 2020
Martha “Marti” Megan Sharp Dietrich, 59, of Berthoud and later Johnstown, Colo., passed away on March 14, 2020. Marti was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico in January of 1961. She graduated from Las Cruces High School and continued on to receive her Bachelor of Business Administration from Mesa State College in 1993.
Marti was happily married to her adoring husband, Larry Dietrich, in February of 1985. For many years she worked in marketing and insurance, but Marti’s true calling was equine therapy. She was a born horse whisperer who connected to the spiritual power of healing through horses and the equine community. Her love of animals and pursuit of higher wisdom was only a fraction of her beautiful presence.
Marti is survived by her son, Philip “Jack” C. Dietrich; her sisters, Jamie Sharp, Robin Sharp, Nicola Sharp, and Carol Lorenz; seven nieces and nephews; her beloved animal family, Azul, Hawkeye, Talo and Arrow; and many other family and friends. Marti is preceded in death by her husband of 28 years, Larry C. Dietrich; her mother Margaret “Peggy” Graber Sharp Ambrose; her father, William Guy Sharp; and her stepfather, Philip S. Ambrose.
Services will be held at a later date and posted on The Natural Funeral’s website. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Spirit Heart Ranch, 589 County Road 7, Erie, CO 80516.
Marti’s family wishes to thank the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary of South Dakota, Pathways Hospice, and Loren Uecker of Radiant Passage.
