Diane "Di" Felch

November 20, 1945 — March 19, 2024

Diane was called home to glory on March 19th in Muskego, WI. She always led with love, kindness and optimism. She will be greatly missed.

Diane was born on November 20, 1945 and grew up in Wausau. She married James (“Jim” or “Moe”) Felch in 1968 and gained a whole lot of relatives. They lived in California for a bit, then moved back to Wausau, and had three kids. Diane worked as a lunch lady at Newman High School, and later retired after more than 20 years as the manager of the Holsum / Sara Lee bakery store on Schofield Avenue. She was widowed in 2009 and in 2019 she moved to the Milwaukee area to be near her kids and grandkids. 

Her hobbies included sewing, cooking / baking, playing word games (she was a Boggle shark), arts and crafts, and loving on her grandkids. She enjoyed trying new foods, traveling, spending time with her friends, Bible study and volunteering at church.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children Fred (Mary) Felch, Jill Felch, Beth (Ron) Felch-Starke; grandchildren Aurora (Zack) Pio, Abigail Felch, Addison Gillespie, and Alex Felch; and many beloved siblings, in-laws, nieces / nephews, and friends. 

Services will be held at St. Therese Catholic Church in Rothschild, WI on April 11, 2024. Visitation 1:00 pm, memorial service 3:00 pm. A reception will be held at Sam’s Pizza (her favorite) afterward. Committal will be Friday, April 12 at 10:30 am at Restlawn Memorial Park Mausoleum.

Some advanced directives left by Diane- Please DO NOT wear uncomfortable clothes to the services; come as your everyday real self. In lieu of sending flowers, please make a donation to the Marathon County Humane Society or St. Therese Catholic Church.
