OBITUARY: Diane Marie Weckler

Diane Marie Weckler, 83, of Sturgeon Bay, died at home July 26, 2018.

She was born January 29, 1935 in Green Bay, the daughter of the late John and Ceil (Mancheski) Brans. Diane worked at Milwaukee Shoe Factory, for 16 years at PBI (which was like family), and 10 years at Midwest Wire before retiring.

On Nov. 2, 1952, she married Duane G. Weckler at Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church. He preceded her in death on May 26, 1997. They did everything together, traveling, following the Packers and NASCAR, and dining out with friends. Diane’s theme was “working for the weekend.”

Family surviving includes two children, Rodney (Kathy) Weckler of Sturgeon Bay and Janine (Scott) Hendry of Little Suamico; two grandchildren, Jackie (Ryan) Dachelet of Luxemburg and Nicole Weckler; seven great-grandchildren, twins, Aiden and Ethan; her dear LeMieux family; five siblings, Gail (Jerry) Demarb, Pam (Casey) Sturgis, Ginger (Dan) Krueger, Tom Delchambre, and Tim Olson; many nieces and nephews; and two sisters-in-law, Gloria (Mel) Malvetz and Rosemary Weckler.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents; and two brothers, Jack and Larry.

Her life was honored with a funeral service July 31, 2018 at the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church with Rev. Reeder Herrick officiating. Diane was laid to rest beside her husband, Duane, in Bayside Cemetery.

Visitation for family and friends was held at the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church.

“Our family owes a huge debt of gratitude and would like to thank the entire LeMieux family for their many kindnesses and friendship shown to Diane over many years and especially with her in the last days.”
