Diane was born March 20, 1957 in Evanston, IL. She moved to Hazelhurst, WI in 1973 and
instantly became the heart and soul of Minocqua. She graduated from the State College of
Beauty in 1977 and served as a cosmetologist for 41 years. Diane was a woman of deep faith,
with the biggest heart, an abundance of Irish blessings, and contagious laugh. She lovingly
married her husband, Thomas Smigiel June 12th, 2004 where they served as active members
of the Holy Family Catholic Church community. She was loved by many (including her pets) and
will be remembered by all who were lucky enough to experience her vibrant soul.
