Donald & Riley Deitz
As it is graduation season, we thought we would showcase one of our photographs of a graduate from the past. This is Donald Dietz (1903-2002) son of Ferdinand and Edith Dietz of Walcott, IA. Donald and his brother Riley graduated from Davenport High School in 1922. Congratulations to all the grads of 2015!
