Whitney was born in Rochester, New York to Robin E. Dietz and William F. Dietz.
Ever since high school, Whitney knew she would pursue a medical career. As a member of the Pittsford Ambulance Explorers, her excellence in biology, chemistry, and mathematics, as well as her rise to officer, then president, her medical future was the goal.
Years later, her advancement and hard work paid off in the prestigious nursing programs of Albany University and St. John Fisher.
After relocating to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, she advanced her training to become the Director of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) at The Institute for Advanced Psychiatry. Most recently, Whitney proudly became part of Dermatology Physicians of Dallas and Plano, as the Surgical Procedure Assistant to her mentor.
As a volunteer with a Rochester Police Department, animal control division, management appointed her as an interviewer for prospective parents. She received meritorious awards from the Police Department for her intuitive and perceptive communication skills.
As a youth, Whitney taught herself to sew. She dedicated much of her spare time sewing comforters, pillows and blankets for her animal societies, then extended the service to senior citizens organizations. Most recently, Whitney became an adoption counselor with The Humane Society of North Dallas, as well as an Advocate for Animal Justice.
Whitney was a true friend. Most of all, Whitney cherished her baby Lala, her sister, Alexandra, and niece Leora. Her love of family knew no bounds. “ A Friend has a full heart, and ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help.” That was her motto.
Whitney was pre-deceased by her father William F Dietz and her grandparents Milton and Lenore Weinrieb. She is survived by her mother Robin Dietz-Stein, her sister Alexandra M. Dietz (Alex Massachi), and her niece Leora Massachi.
