We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Everest Chapel
Diane M. Hangartner, age 64, of Wausau died on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital after a battle with kidney disease.
Diane was born on May 15, 1958 in Wausau to the late Jack and Mildred (Vesley) Schaefer. She graduated from Wausau West High School in 1976 and went on to obtain her associates degree from NTC. She worked for 16 years at Gander Mountain. Diane married the love of her life, Curtis Hangartner, on May 10, 1980 at St. Matthew Catholic Church in Wausau.
Diane cherished time spent with her family. She was active in her son’s Boy Scout Troop 453, enjoyed sitting with her father-in-law and watching the packers, and time spent with her niece and nephew. She was a fantastic baker and was known for her pies. Her raised flower and vegetable garden beds, Winnie the Pooh collection, listening to Polka music and cross stitch brought her joy.
Diane is survived by her husband Curtis Hangartner; son Brian Hangartner; siblings David Schaefer, Marie (Patrick) Stepanik and their children Sarah and Joseph, and Jon Schaefer and his sons Dakota and Dylan; brothers-in-law Steven (Judy), Terry, Jay and Kim (Toni); and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved beagle Squeaky.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Aspirus Kidney Dialysis Unit for their years of care and friendship
