DITTMANN, SANDRA L. WATERTOWN On Thursday March 5, 2015, Sandra L. (Hosfeld) Dittmann, age 73, surrendered this earthly life to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Born February 7, 1942, Sandie was the daughter of Arnold and Louise Hosfeld of Watertown and the last remaining member of her immediate family. Sandie often referred to March 1, 1942 as her true spiritual birthday when she was baptized and entered into the community of Christian faith. She married Daniel E. Dittmann on August 1, 1964 in their hometown of Watertown. Sandie loved all animals: and reluctantly leaves behind Sweep Pea and Shug Avery, her beloved Bichon Frises who daily tugged on her heartstrings. Her husband, Dan, survives her. Together they praised and thanked God for each other and His many blessings upon them. He brought them together as high school sweethearts, allowing them to remain the love of each other's lives for 50 plus married years. Two special and dearly beloved friends, Ester Ann Flater of Lake Mills, and Betty Lillge of Watertown were Sandie's constant comforters, confidants and beacons of hope. Many relatives and friends will be saddened by the loss of Sandie's genuine smile and unaffected, God-fearing approach to life in this world. Included are a number of friends in the New York and Chicago areas where the Dittmann's lived and worked for many years. Private Christian graveside services were held on Tuesday March 10, 2015 with the Rev. Karl Walther of St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church officiating. Memorials to St. Mark's School Fund, would be appreciated. Schmutzler-Vick Funeral Home and Cremation Service is serving the family. Online condolences may be left at svfuneralhome.com. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23) This is the law and gospel - the very words of the one and only true triune God, Sandie lived by all her life. Sandie is now the recipient in full of His free gift for all eternity.
